Re: Help question on compiling engines for old systems like Windows 98

The free C++ Borland builder can do executables for Win95 and Win98 up to XP and Win7. Just google bcc32. Free but have not checked what type of C++ standards it can handle. I have successfully compiled crafty and SF around 2011 using that old Borland compiler. Hi Mike, Thanks I will pass it along ...

Help question on compiling engines for old systems like Windows 98

I have a question, which perhaps someone here can help with. I am searching a compiler preferably: mingw32 4.7.2 mingw 3.4.2 I have been trying to get a friend of mine to compile an engine of his to work with Windows 98 and the above two seem to work because I know they have been previously used to ...

Re: What was the top Chess engine before it was Stockfish, Komodo or Houdini?

This is simply not true. The dedicated machines were using the same processors as “home” computers, dedicated machine manufacturors had no faster production advantage in buying and building dedicated machines than did home computer manufacturors. Both Atari and Amiga were building units with 68000,...

Re: Rebel 10

This might help you with the DOSBox Dfend emulations at Ed's site: Emulated CPU Cycles 8088 4.77 MHz = 315 286 12.5 MHz = 2750 386 33 MHz = 7800 486 66 MHz = 26800 Pentium 90 = 69300 Pentium 100 = 77000 Pentium II 300 = 200000 Therefore if you want to play at PC XT 8 Mhz you probably have to set it ...

Re: AlphaZero: The 10 Top Shots

SF8 does not see Bg5 as best move. From someone else's test I know it only sees it as best move at 59 ply which you are confirming. I have not tested Stockfish 8 on this position. As I showed , the latest Cfish found Bg5 at depth 45, after about 20 minutes. Of course, since it used 20 threads, that...

Re: AlphaZero: The 10 Top Shots

Are they going to discuss next few years about these scarce alpha zero games that were published. Alpha zero does not play anymore or not. So it is a dead engine. Henk, As far as I am concerned Alpha can post a million games and the same pattern will repeat itself. The loss moves will be found in l...

Re: AlphaZero: The 10 Top Shots

To clarify: it means the move was selected as of depth 58, it doesn't mean it was not selected at earlier depths. This is from the ChessBase online book, which only shows the last result, not the whole search history. --Jon OK. So Cfish says: info depth 60 seldepth 94 multipv 1 score cp 265 nodes 1...

Re: AlphaZero: The 10 Top Shots

Hi there,

I have a question regarding MobileThinker Board. It works on my pocket pc but I do not seem to be able to get the opening books working. Is there something I need to add to the cfg file?

Thanks
