Re: My failed attempt to change TCEC NN clone rules

Nah, if they wanted that you'd have been asked about what was your favorite movie, and if you disliked some parts of it and stuff like that, some creative process, not force you to watch some movie and tell what it was about. The problem with a movie summary is that there's some expected standard, ...

Re: My failed attempt to change TCEC NN clone rules

So for the record, you agree that the lc0 cuDNN/CUDA backend is a very critical part to the strength of an NN-engine? I think I've been very clear and said *numerous times* that the cudann backend is a very important critical piece of code...But to be very clear, the sentiment I was relating above ...

Re: What the heck happens here?

I took the Sim tester which has some 8,000+ quiet positions with unclear best move and tested engines, including versions of Lc0 nets, all at 1 second / position and additionally SF_dev at much longer 10s/position and 30s/poisition. Also, for some check, one Lc0 at 0.2s/position. Hardware: 4 i7 cor...

Re: Linux flavors - opinions

... The other option is to compile the compiler itself from source. Good luck with that. Yes, you'll need it. After what seemed like weeks of preparation in my free time, I compiled an m68k cross-compiler using an 2.5GHZ AMD Phenom-II x4 830 which took about what seemed like 45 minutes. On an m68k,...

No puzzle type. - Easy to learn, and possibility to play fast games. - Not a big board. Not need to learn a lot of...

Re: Games you're proud of

Bad game but last part of game has a nice combination. I found it because I read it from face of strong player (Elo 2100-2200) watching the game. For I thought my position was hopeless. But if a strong player finds it interesting then probably there would be something interesting. Otherwise I proba...

Re: LCZero: Progress and Scaling. Relation to CCRL Elo

But what does hold water is this, that decisions based primarily on ever-increasing, self-discovered positional principles will eventually triumph altogether, which is the exact impressio...
