Re: Previous amazing Alpha Zero position is not amazing anymore!

Disappointingly, Google showed no interest in Commercializing AlphaZero They just announced a book with 2000 extra games to be published by New In Chess. You can go buy it and gasp at the games then. Plain and simple truth is that AlphaZero made a Mockery of the alpha-beta Computer Chess Engines ov...

Re: Lc0 v0.19.0 has been released

Hi Graham, not sure this would help, but make sure you updated the dlls with the ones provided in the zip file. Some updates occured with v.0.18 and I thought a while this CPU version was buggy (unexpected crashes without explicit error message) - restored once I noticed the dll updates (and previo...

Re: LC0 graph has gone impressive

https://lczero.org/ It seemed before that LC0 would top out and then fall down like Malthus' dismal theory or something. But the current trajectory is very impressive indeed. I know the 6200 figure does not mean 6200 Elo against SF and Komodo. But I suspect that the current iteration of LC0 on dual...

Re: what happened to scorpio NN in TCEC?

According to the protocol, engines can take upto 1 hour to do initialization. Daniel I don't know why they don't use a compile which allows a longer start time (if this is the main problem)? It is an easy change. I remember very well that LC0 also had that problem with too long start time in the fi...

OT - Font display in Google changed?

Sorry for being off topic, but just yesterday I noticed that something didn't look right in my GoogleSheets. It seems that suddenly a few fonts there look extremely shitty on my hardware at least. I have not updated my graphics driver and it seems FF also is not the issue, because the display of som...

Re: new Engine, Axolotl

Hi everybody, I would like to introduce my new chess engine, Axolotl! This engine is written in Java (10), and compiled to 8. It is a UCI engine, and while you can play it on the command line, I recommend connecting to something like Arena. I am new to this, and so I do not think it can offer any s...
