Re: Something goes wrong with lc0 since yesterday?

I-5 3210M CPU 2.50GHZ. Bought in 2013 or so

When I start my computer I already have to wait half an hour before I can use it. This was not so one year ago. I don't know what happened.
Maybe visual studio 2017 ? Before I used 2015 version.

Re: Something goes wrong with lc0 since yesterday?

One month 50 (real) Elo and 4 million training games later. 1 training game would keep my pc busy whole day. So 4 million days later would be 11000 years. If your pc runs 100 times faster then you only need 110 years to get this fantastic result of 50 Elo points.

Re: Something goes wrong with lc0 since yesterday?

Watching the graphic. Looks like they need another 4 or 8 million games to get a new high. Or is any conclusion too early.
That means waiting time of 4 or 8 weeks.

Re: Design for change, refactoring, SOLID

Currently I use this interface but I think it should be a template for now it assumes output is an array of double. But that need not be. Might also be that at the time I have finished rewriting all my chess software I got so bored or sick of it that I don't want to have to do anything with chess pr...

Re: On-line engine blitz tourney June

Nice (not). Last windows update cost me another 8 hours to install. Thank you Microsoft for reminding me that my computer is slow and totally useless. Now I finally found time to re-read my old chess books instead of useless programming.

Re: On-line engine blitz tourney June

Again system is telling me that are new updates. Probably last update failed. They don't understand that I don't want to be bothered with these updates blocking my computer for days. Are there no some kind of (police) agents warning customers about using bad windows versions. Probably I'm scammed by...

Re: On-line engine blitz tourney June

Beware there are windows updates. Took me one day to recover. Microsoft should have fired all their employees for they are unable to create a final product within 25 years. Never seen any useful extra features except from slowing down my computer. Visual studio 2017 also assumes you have a very fast...

Re: What am I missing with respect to MTDf

I implemented mtdf two or maybe three times. But it was always worse or at least not better than principal variation search. Maybe because of Skippers fine grained evaluation function (ahum, hi hi hi). Maybe if new_eval computes 30 * ( old_eval() div 30 centi pawns) it gets equal results in speed. ...
