Re: Bin book adapter?

I just saw your more recent post and everything seems to be solved - great! Thanks Mike. Apparently I was too hasty in accusing Polyglot of not being "transparent enough" (I apologize about that), since InBetween is an adapter as transparent as it gets and yet I can't find a way to install it on IC...

Re: Bin book adapter?

Solved! :D Apparently, Cfish installed on the InfinityChess GUI is unable to see the book unless you have Cfish and the book in this directory: C:\Users\Ulysses\Documents\InfinityChess\Data\Engines After moving them there, it works! I found this place after looking for a log file to see communicatio...

Re: Bin book adapter?

All the GUI needs to do is pass along the path to the book file to Cfish. That may be what the GUI isn't doing. Is there a way to send those commands directly to the engine after it is loaded? I think I'd need to send it: setoption name BookFile value cfish.bin And then it'd use the book. But despi...

Re: Bin book adapter?

What GUI are you using? Thanks Zullill, I'm using InfinityChess GUI, setting the book in the BookFile type string doesn't work, I've tried also using the full book path, but the engine doesn't use the book. I recently tried other engines and they don't work either (asmFish doesn't use book, and McC...

Yeah, it was a joke people kept posting on the video, as a "plot twist"...

Re: Bin book adapter?

Oh boy Guenther, look for another job where you're better paid, I'd rather live with this problem than be treated badly.

Hoping to get assistance from someone that wants to help, if nobody exists, I guess that's life.

Bin book adapter?

I can't get latest Cfish (from July) to use bin books. I can't get Polyglot to install in my GUI. Is there a bin book adapter that is "transparent"? (it only passes commands from GUI to engine and back, so if the engine can be installed, the adapter can be installed; it'd play the moves from bin unl...

Re: buying a new computer

If NN engines were to find that move A is stronger than move B when it's not known before, as evidenced by NN engines demonstrating lots of wins by playing move A, then the human GMs would still adopt move A and it would become the preferred move (over B). Then, yes, it would be a contribution to o...
