Re: Verify integrity of Syzygy TB with MD5

You may try BanksiaGUI. It doesn't require external MD5 data but uses the checksum numbers integrated/embedded already into Syzygy files. It can also tell you which files are missing/error too:

I guess my way maybe not the best but the easiest ;)

More popular yes, and maybe that is reason enough to switch , but it is not universally accepted as better, just different.
The main reason I have implemented Bayeselo first is that some famous chess websites use that method ;)

Re: Banksia GUI released

In short, version 0.37 uses Ordo model by Gaviota, while version 0.38 uses Bayeselo model from Rémi Coulom. But Ordo is much more popular than Bayeselo, so Mr. Phhnguyen might consider switching from Bayeselo to Ordo. The algorithm of Ordo can be found here [https://sites.google.com/site/gaviotache...

Re: Banksia GUI released

Why is there such a big difference? Is it possible to enter an option for calculating the classic Elo? v0.37 : https://i.ibb.co/G5pyFCr/0-37.png v0.38 : https://i.ibb.co/HGKbT8T/0-38.png Previous versions of 0.38 were not Elo but LOS (Likelihood of Superiority). https://www.chessprogramming.org/Mat...

My joke is that "Leela is for the rich and Stockfish for the poor"
Are you sure? You may buy 1K cheap computer + 1K graphics card to play Lc0. With 2K only it’s not easy to buy a multi-cores computer which is good enough for SF to vs Lc0 in above computer ;)

Re: GUI for easy engine - engine outplay positions

I'm looking for a GUI with which I can let two engines play against each other from a certain position. With Fritz this has only been done automatically for one or more games since several fritz versions. I would rather choose and engine within a game to play against another engine for several move...

Re: Testing Stockfish, Lc0, Banksia GUI for iOS (iPhone, iPad, iWatch)

My main problem is that I don't stand a chance of winning any games even with the engines playing at their lowest level. So for me the inclusion of weaker engines (Elo 1200 - 1500) would be great. Interesting! One of the problems I don’t know which “weak” engines I should add since they are too man...

Re: Testing Stockfish, Lc0, Banksia GUI for iOS (iPhone, iPad, iWatch)

Also I see no information about the chess engines thinking . Or is there none on a watch ? Igel crashed the ap...
