Re: Position Causes Stockfish and Komodo To Crash

The GUI writers will tell you it is the responsibility of the engine or the user to detect bad data. I consider myself a GUI writer. UCI spec is clear enough here I think. In https://www.pychess.org/editor/chess the user input is the position they construct. I never thought it is not my responsibil...

Re: Position Causes Stockfish and Komodo To Crash

There are lots of things that will make SF coredump if the position has an error in it. I reported some to fishcooking and the response was: "Don't input bad positions." Of course, when you collect positions from the internet, you will collect thousands of bad positions. Nothing like finding 3.5 TB...

Re: Chess variants made with help from alpha zero article

As a lover of chess variants myself, I greatly enjoyed this paper. The selection of variants is not exactly the one I would have made, but they do all have the advantage of being playable with a normal chess set: No fairy pieces or differently shaped boards are required. My favorite of those varian...

Re: Carlsen is leading the Online Invitation LIVE

Re: Carlsen is leading the Online Invitation LIVE

May I ask mods to move this to other forum, please? Thx! p.s. I hate avoiding posts I'm not interested at all when I come here...
