Re: OM GOLEM database with 30 mio games

Right, he emphasizes quantity over quality - but, it may be useful if looking for some quality games that are not found in the 'better' databases. Still not sure if it's worth what he's asking. [I am referring to his other bases, not GOLEM necessarily.]

Re: Deep Analysis

I like novelty mining, Centipawn analysis, and the much improved retro analysis function for games, and using the huge database to see the true TN. The Survey feature is outstanding. My Deep Analysis seemed to work fine. But it took a day to see anything useful. It is slow. All agreed on Surveys, n...

The 'downloads' link, which will take you to the downloads page, should be on the green-colored part of the home page (on the left side).

Re: Nemorino 6 (NNUE)

I watched this game between Nemorino and Houdini 6 and I don't understand why Nemorino couldn't see that it was obviously a draw. It's evaluation was over 100 while Houdini 6 saw that it was draw for dozens of moves. I am no expert but it just seemed strange to me. Were you using (syzygy) tablebase...

Re: New engine: Stash

Been there, done that. What I now like to do in Arena is first change the path to the newer executables and only then change the name to match that. Sometimes, if I like an old version, I'll leave it be. :)

Re: Nemorino 6 (NNUE)

I was under the impression that v6 has NNUE switched on at all times. It's just a NNUE version.

Re: Nemorino 6 (NNUE)

a8=Q is not a bad move it's simply the best move as it immediately ends the game with a win. As long as tablebases and tablebase adjudication is used, there might be shorter ways to a win than mating. ...it immediately ends the game with an adjudication win. Most of us are used to checkmate being n...

Re: Fat Fritz Update

Is there any way to retain (or get back) the old versions? Hard to tell as I don't even know where the engines are stored on my drive. I updated to version 1.2 without issue. I hope that was not a mistake. You can create a backup folder and store the previous versions there, before you upgrade, so ...
