Re: Help with the .ini file configuration

I want it to use it in an uci program, but that does not allow me to configure uci options. I doubt very much you cannot configure options, if you use an UI which talks uci. (of course the polyglot ini file you showed contains lots of errors, but it makes no sense to try to repair it, if you don't ...

Re: Strange game Komodo vs GinkGo in WCCC

In this game draw was agreed. But is not a win for Black, since he remains with 2 pieces vs alone White King?´ White pawns can easily be stopped... I don't think the last move was played at all, because it was already a repetition draw after 109...Kg4. Probably the TD or someone else touched that s...

Re: "Stuck" website

The last few days I have a maybe related problem. Sometimes pages don't load completely despite it looks as if everything was already loaded in FF. (no error messages - refresh loads correctly) A given page looks then, as if the css file or some scripts run from a different server with network probl...

Re: TCEC should reconsider the ban on Ethereal

Doesn't Andrew work on stockfish? Could he introduce a bug or something into stockfish promoting his own engine? Doesn't seem right he has own engine and works on stockfish too!!! I for one am very skeptical over this one! Conflict of interest? Is he working with other developers on fishtest? Is he...

Re: how will Leela fare at the WCCC?

IMHO the TD should declare a draw, if the (materially) weaker side uses tablebases This assumes the materially stronger side (without EGTB) won't end up in a losing position, because of avoiding the draw due to thinking it is ahead. That isn't applicable to the Leela - Komodo game, but one could ea...

Re: how will Leela fare at the WCCC?

Well, I was actually talking about the Leela - Komodo game, where operators were apparently involved in complicated reasoning for whether the circumstances that had materialized made it wise to offer a draw, or accept one. The rules I knew would not allow such a thing, and if they have been changed...

Re: Leela Ratio and wattage

Does the Leela Ratio reflect CPU vs GPU watt usage? https://blog.lczero.org/2018/07/04/leela-ratio/ I.e., if a computer running Stockfish compared to a computer running Leela Zero registers a Leela Ratio of 1.0, and then we measure power usage of each computer (say using a Kill A Watt meter), will ...

Re: how will Leela fare at the WCCC?

The issue here is the book, and whether the opponents can exploit the atrocious performance of Leela on tactical puzzles even in openings. Leela can easily lose 200 Elo points if the opponents will use tactically very sharp openings. From the current games it can be deducted that it plays solely wi...
