Re: Knight odds test blitz match dragon vs GM Lenderman

Some moderation penalty on useless permanent full quoting would that help? ;)

This thread should be added to the internet-wiki, as a role model, how a troll lures another member into full quoting...

Re: Can somebody with 6 men EGTB show how to win with White?

Ethereal playing White Versus Igel playing with Black show an evaluation of 0.01 and Igel is showing an evaluation of 0.00. I am NOT using any chess Opening Nor EGTB for this test, Just pure engine evaluation where the two Engines have to show how good is there Opening knowledge and their endgame K...

Re: SPCC: Website is online again

Nice! Cfish is weaker than SF according list! Isn't it 15% faster anymore? I tried all CFish avx2 Binaries (there were different compiles done). And I used the fastest, which is +7% faster than Stockfish Dev avx2 on my machine. It was a binary by Chessman. From here: https://chess.massimilianogoi.c...

Re: Introducing Igel chess engine

Well you were right about the speed diff to 3.00, actually it was the other way round! All my compilations from 2.70 to 2.90 simply were three times too slow, because I used a simplified makefile in the beginning and didn't check your improvements in the makefile later and always compiled with what...

Re: Introducing Igel chess engine

Hello Guenther, And I just cannot believe my eyes, 3.0.0 seems three! times faster now for old hardware? (ok before it was really slow with nn) I doubt Igel became significantly faster. It is true that I removed some extensions (no capture extensions, less history extensions, etc) and Igel should b...

CrazyAra the Crazyhouse fame now also plays chess called ClassicAra!
https://github.com/QueensGambit/CrazyAr ... /tag/0.9.0

(not sure if/how being added to the chronology yet, as it uses MV-SF for move generation it seems, also it doesn't run here,

Re: New engine releases & news 2021

Gabor, I didn't feel pestered, it would make sense though to look first into the chronology, that's all. (I thought all potential testers do anyway?) BTW current dev (r2046) seems a step back (again). (check the issues at github - I stop testing it now for a while, as it makes no sense, there is a ...
