Let is say after 50 moves, The auxillary engine plays 100%.
Better yet, let the user decide the number of pieces on the board there should be left, before SF takes over.

Re: GPU rumors - AMD Navi and Nvidia GTX 1160

Getting rid of Ray Tracing is certainly a great thing for Chess as the RT part is not utilized. This would make the card much cheaper They've taken a 20% of the cores for a 20% price reduction. They've also increased core clocks about 10% to offset missing features (RT included), so they've been ra...

there are rumors about Nvidia GTX 1150, 1160 and 1160 TI with TensorCores but no RayTracing for February/March 2019
The 1660Ti is coming out this week, hardly any patience required to get one, at most you'll have to wait a little for your favourite dealer to list it.

Re: deepmind's alphastar beats pros in starcraft ii

I tend not to do rush builds. Me neither, I like to keep my guys alive, and in Blizzard games, the best way to achieve that is to go aerial. In WCIII I used Gryphons and in SC2 I go for Banshees, which are even better because of the stealth mode. If the game is well played, you don't lose a single ...

Re: deepmind's alphastar beats pros in starcraft ii

But the AI built in loses to a good human player in both micro and, especially, strategy. In particular it doesn't understand choke points. However, having said all that I would prefer it if the game was less "click heavy" for want of putting it. The main problem I see with the built-in AI, is that...

I understand cute uses its own Polyglot code instead of the Polyglot code of the engine.
I haven't played a lot with it, because is very limited in options, but I'd say they use a 64bit version. Worth giving it a look if you plan to keep improving the old code.

Re: deepmind's alphastar beats pros in starcraft ii

I wonder how much time humans who know nothing about starcraft need to understand the rules of starcraft. I failed to find a simple explanation about the game and I have no idea about this game. Almost all RTS have three basic strategies. You can easily check with a good tech tree or diagram showin...

Re: Polyglot extension tool

Weights on learn 1. Option ' B' (best move) sets the weight of moves on 100% with the highest learn value. The book will only play those 100% moves. Using this function basically emulates the results in table-2 above. 2. Option ' V ' (variation) based on the learn scores will calculate new weights....
