Re: unit testing polyglot probe code....

I'm not trying to calculate the key, probably I'll check it too sooner or later. I was asking if someone known some famous and sound opening with en passant or promotion.

Probably the author of perfect2017.bin will be the best source of info

Re: UCI question

Probably something like that:

Save the command list in input.txt file and then:
Komodo <input.txt

Pay attention the it's not possible to analyze more than one position with a single file because uci require when performing analysis the input management is not blocked.

Thanks for those inputs.

A test is currently running with Minic, and it seems around 35elo is gained just from an emergency time implementation.
what are the game timing conditions?

Re: Elo boost and time management

from my own test it give a very good Elo boost at very short time control, the longer the time countrol the smaller the elo gain I suppose.

but I haven't done a lot of testing with long time control, let's say 10 minutes/games or TCEC/CCCC time control
