Re: Commercial Release of Ethereal 13.00 (NNUE) for AVX2 Systems

I do not have a credit card (and dont want to get one). So, without the possibility to pay with PayPal or GooglePay, I cannot buy Ethereal 13 and cannot test it. I am in the process of getting Paypal to work. Originally I was planning to use Paypal, as it has greater name recognition, and charges l...

Re: SPCC: Testrun of Fire 8.NN finished

Some notes: The probing code used in Fire 8.NN is a modified version of Daniel Shawul's nnue-probe https://github.com/dshawul/nnue-probe https://github.com/dshawul/nncpu-probe which is based on Ronald de Man's Cfish nnue probing functions https://github.com/syzygy1/Cfish This nnue-probe code is inde...

Re: SPCC: Testrun of Fire 8.N Raptor finished

The "Raptor" nn.bin network is not original either. It is just one of SV's earlier Stockfish networks: https://tests.stockfishchess.org/api/nn/nn-82215d0fd0df.nnue These networks are not 'Stockfish' networks...but I do understand your need to categorize them as such, making it seem as if anyone usi...

It is just one of SV's earlier Stockfish networks: https://tests.stockfishchess.org/api/nn/nn-82215d0fd0df.nnue I don't see why he gave it a new name. Norman didn't include this network in his official release so I can't comment as to whether he m...

Re: New engine releases & news 2021

want elo boost? copy-paste NNUE probing code, grab strongest SF net and pat yourself on the back. 2k can become nealy 3k overnight, as has been demostrated by some. Cheng has an excellent and unique search...adding NNUE technology need not be a sin. You can retain Cheng's unique eval and individual...

Re: New engine releases & news 2021

Dear Norm, Is it possible to improve the speed of Fire. I am testing it now on Playchess and is very slow, compared to the other engines I used... Also is it possible to embeed the latest Stockfish nnue ( 47 mb) compared to the 20 mb one ? Hi Damir, I'm not very interested in embedding SF's nn, or ...

Fire 8.1: stealing Houdini 6's evaluation and doing worse than it. What a great job by Norman. :mrgreen: Thx...yes Fire is clearly superior at fast TCs. Sadly, all those Stockfish patches you and Andrew directly applied to Ethereal...everything you took from SF (which remains completely unacknowled...

Re: New engine releases & news 2021

Then repeating takeback + force move it starts to play all kind of different moves and scores (see the orange moves) even to the point of giving away a queen with a 3 pawns plus score. Of course you took the obfuscation out of 8.1 and 8.1 keeps on playing f4 with a -7 score as in the output of SIME...
