Legal status of Eman?

I find really weird that I haven't seen much talk about the engine Eman. It is a Stockfish derivative, and I have to say it's the most impressive derivative I've evers seen. Perhaps, it is the strongest engine that has been installed on my hardware, ever, and by a lot. This thing is FAST, and I have...

Re: Komodo 13 released

Where do I set MultiPV under the Shredder GUI? It seems that you can't set MutiPV under the Shredder GUI (it hides the setting in engine options, and doesn't allow to set it directly; I had to make my own compile of McCain that calls it "MultiPW" just to fix this.) The best you can do is using the ...

Re: Against snake venom you must take its antidote. Man versus machine.

Against gluttony, temperance. Against laziness, diligence. These ideas are the poison. There's a whole realm of illnesses cau...

Re: Pause calculation / analysis engines

Saving the hash and restarting the analysis after reloading it is not the same as continuing the analysis undisturbed. Depends on the implementation. Jeremy Bernstein's Persistent Hash implementation for Stockfish TCEC6 was the same as continuing the analysis undisturbed (except scores from future ...

I believe that both Komodo and Komodo MCTS share the same code and it is not fair to have them as seperate engines.
This is a common thing for the CCRL, as Fritz 16 is +90% Rybka 4, and they have them as separate engines.

Re: Fire 7.1 and free Komodo 9

We just don't want to have to spend significant time sending out old versions. Adding the interim versions to a zip file takes the same effort as just adding major versions. Though, I guess this makes interim versions more special :) (specially, Komodo 10.1, which has the best playing style, so it'...

Re: Nice Mate in 4 that I missed at the finish line

I'll let you answer your own question! :D My answer: you checked it on CPU-based Lc0, but not on SF. :wink: Oh so wrong, at my age even doing that might lead to early onset 'Alzheimers', don't want to start turning my brain off just yet even if I get it wrong. :) Haha!

Re: Playing the endgame like a boss !!

whether it plays moves that are shockingly out of this world. The moves remain "shockingly out of this world" for the time control they're played in. You can't just download the PGN, analyze the positions for a few days, and conclude the moves weren't special. Because Leela found and played them in...

Re: Alouette 0.0.1

I would like to explore very simple ideas, and why not make a kind of toy engine for children, with personnalities. For personalities, simple ideas that work well is just personalities that value material differently. These ideas worked well for fun Personalities for the Pro Deo Chess engine (each ...
