Re: Looking for 32-bit dll to probe tablebases

It is not yet configurable like that but maybe i should do that if there is enough interest in it. At the moment, you have to add code manually to make your network work with egbbdll, but it is not a lot of work. Currently it supports the following input and output planes. Inputs: Simple format: 12 ...

Re: Looking for 32-bit dll to probe tablebases

Yes, that is correct. New exciting feature: You can now load and probe neural networks with it as well, both lc0 & scorpio format. It uses Tensorflow and TensorRT backends with automatic multi-threaded batching and gets the same nps as lc0. It is also very easy to add new network formats as the netw...

Re: Scorpio 2.9.0 64-bit MCTS+NN Gauntlet for CCRL 40/40

Ofcourse I am interested in reports of issues of installation. Sorry you felt that way, but i tried my best to address the issues you raised. I just wasn't able to reproduce the problem, but we both suspected that my frequent updating could have been a problem. Your questions here and the suggestion...

Re: Scorpio 2.9.0 64-bit MCTS+NN Gauntlet for CCRL 40/40

Hi tpoppins, Thank you very much for the test. Did you figure out what the issue was with cpu scorpio version ? It maybe that i continually update the versions and there was a mixup in your download. I have added an install.sh script that will download and configure scorpio and test it for you. http...

Re: Chess Fighter Neural Net

I'm curious what you meant by 'piece counts' as one of your inputs. Does the main convolution body receive it as a plane or do you enter it after as a single input? I feed 5 single inputs of material differences to the beginning of the value head. So the convolution steps is skipped. That seems to ...

Re: Chess Fighter Neural Net

I have had a similar frustrating experience with reinforcement learning before i deemed it too big a project for one man. What input planes do you use besides piece placement? I use attack tables and piece counts as additional inputs and they seem to help accelerate learning. Do you use replay buff...

Re: Scorpio+Lc0-32742 vs Stockfish 9

So you enabled half-precision mode for Scorpio but not for Lc0 (cudnn-fp16 is half-precision)? Not exactly apples to apples comparison then. Oops..this was not intentional at all! This is actually the first time I managed to run lc0 on the GPU. It now gets 30+knps on the V100 with half precision fr...
