Re: Banksia GUI released

First of all I want to say a BIG THANK YOU to Nguyen Hong Pham for developing this really great chess GUI! At the moment I'm only missing one feature - maybe it is already implemented and I don't know how to use it: Is it possible to play the same engine tournament on more than just one computer? I ...

Re: Stockfish Cluster MPI

Hi Clemens, Windows 8 / Windows Server 2012 (or higher) is the minimum requirement for Stockfish MPI. It won't work on Windows 7 / Windows Server 2008 R2. You have to start it with mpiexec -hosts n name-of-host1 name-of-host2 name-of-host3 name-of-hostn name-of-the-stockfish-cluster.executable where...

Re: Stockfish Cluster MPI

First of all: Thanks to komodoslash001 for compiling! Unfortunately it doesn't work. If you start it with someting like: "mpiexec -hosts 2 host1 host2 /path/to/stockfish-executable" then Stockfish starts on both hosts but the two processes don't communicate with each other. Maybe there is still some...

Re: Texel 1.07

Hi Peter, here are the results: TC: 30m+5s Texel107-Cluster [T60] - Texel107-12C: 41.5 - 28.5 (70: +13, =57, -0) PGN TC: 10m+3s Texel107-Cluster [T60] - Texel107-12C: 111 - 69 (180: +43, =136, -1) PGN Of course too few games to make clear statements, but it seems that Texel scales well on 60 cores c...

Re: Texel 1.07

Hi Peter, this is excellent news! Thank you so much for the new Texel package! I think this is one of most interesting engine release since years, especially for people interested in cluster-solutions. Since the publication of Kai Himstedt's cluster-version of Toga there has never been any release o...

Re: cutechess-cli 0.8.0 released

Hi Ilari, thank you very much for the new release! I tested it and possibly found a bug: Engines don't switch the sides any more if you set up a tournament with >2 participants. Example 1: cutechess-cli.exe -tournament gauntlet -engine conf="Komodo" -engine conf="Gull" -engine conf="Stockfish" -each...

Re: Speculative deep pondering

Hi Harm Geert, this is an excellent idea to build such a general adapter like you described it! I spent some time experimenting with Kai's implementation "GridChess" two or three years ago. Actually there is a lot of potential in the idea of optimistic pondering. But Kai is very short on time these ...
