Re: Polyglot 64-bit

Sqlite can use in memory tables. https://www.sqlite.org/inmemorydb.html Also, Fastdb is an in memory database, as is Monetdb. Monetdb is the most sophisticated of these, but it is not an embedded database I have tried two options with sqlite, one using the memory mode, another using a file but with...

Re: Polyglot 64-bit

An alternative, which I am currently studying for my program, so that memory is not a problem is to use a database, such as sqlite, or a mixture of a dictionary/cache in memory and a database, to create an intermediate file, prior to final filtering. The problem with this solution is that it is muc...

Re: New Lucas Big Bug, not Big bang

Why not ?, this is the correct result in the context you decided to play. In this context if engine can´t win in less than 90/1,5 moves each side, then it lost on time. And congratulation is just a social convention of the engines (obligated by the GUI), it really doesn't feel that, surely it would ...

Re: New Lucas Big Bug, not Big bang

It means fixed time dedicated to think every move. Setting a fixed time for the engine to think, is not consistent with a total time for the game, except in the case that this is to control the time the user himself. For example, if it is indicated that the engine thinks for one second each move and...

Re: New Lucas Big Bug, not Big bang

In Lucas Chess if you want that the engine select the time it needs, (Playing against any engine), in Tab "Basic configuration", time = 0.0, depth = "--": https://drive.google.com/open?id=1iHW7O7L-lNvzLuhC5l35ljwoqefFlTA9 Time in this tab means fixed time that the engine must think. If 0, then it is...

Re: New Lucas Big Bug, not Big bang

The GUI's responsibility is to tell the engine how much time it has left, the engine can use it as it sees fit. Probably use more time at first, and then accelerate. Lucas Chess has a very simple time control system, it is only possible to indicate a fixed time, the number of moves is indifferent. I...

Been meaning to give this a go... But "Play like a Woman Grandmaster" ????? I had doubts about including this training as an apart, but according to the criteria I have used so far (Fide top players), the number of women is an anecdote in the list of great masters provided by the program, and I tho...
