Re: Schooner Version 2.2 Release

Ok, you are right. I ve missed the latest statement from Ed Schroeder. Sorry for that. Yes, my bad. I corrected the main list, was able to add more engines (among them Vajolet, Laser, Chiron) due to some MEA changes by Ferdy. The correct list for Schooner is at - http://rebel13.nl/html/schooner.html

Re: Trying to use ProDeo book in my program

Hello everybody! I would like to use ProDeo book in my Pascal program. So I started to translate book.c in Pascal. @Ed Schröder I allowed myself to give a link to my Google Drive because it seems that the page where I had downloaded the files no longer exists. I hope you don't mind. I don't mind, i...

Re: "Leela is an opening book" nonsense

Nice strawman bro? I wish it were. You are right, I tried, see subject Amazing Leela - http://rebel13.nl/home/whatever.html Encouraged by the first excellent results at D=1 I tried D=2 | D=3 | D=4 | D=5 and instead of getting somewhat stronger at each deeper depth strangely enough the opposite happ...

+1 for MChess.

A couple of years ago I briefly corresponded with Marty. At that time he didn't rule out a new version of MChess. It had "maybe-one-day" status.

Ask Marty for the source code?

Re: Evaluation challenge II

My guess Lc0 with 1,0 or -1 plies :) . But seriously depths in different engines are not compatible only time means anything. Valid point except this subject is about the evaluation function. But alright I will make it a NN topic in a new thread because it shows learned NN's are way ahead AB engine...

Evaluation challenge II

r1b1k2r/p2n1ppp/1p2p3/3p2B1/P2P4/1Nn1P3/5PPP/R3KB1R w KQkq - This position once was contributed by Vincent Diepenveen and is about mobility. 1. f3 takes away the last escape square of the black knight on c3 and is lost. Modern engines find it very quickly by search but that's not the point. The cha...

Re: Evaluation challenge

Too easy testposition. All engines play practically instantly capture, because next best move is much worse: Analysis by Stockfish Dev 64 BMI2: 1. = (0.00): 1.Rxd3 cxd3 2.Be4 b4 3.Bxd3 b3 4.axb3 Rxb3 5.Bxh7+ Kf8 6.Bc2 Rbxe3 7.Bxe3 Rxe3 8.Rg1 Qd4 9.h6 gxh6 10.Qg8+ Ke7 11.f5 Be5 12.f6+ Bxf6 13.Qb8 Be...
