A burning question

Hi all, I used to run gauntlet matches in Arena on my Z570 laptop (i5-2410M CPU @ 2.30GHz). CPU usage would be 25% with single CPU engines not pondering. Now I have installed "Core Temp". It shows core temperatures beyond 85 C when running a gauntlet for more than 10 minutes at ambient temperature o...

Re: On-line engine blitz tourney May

@MOBMAT and others Hi all, Since I invariably forget everything, I made a manual for myself. The information is mostly from forum posts, mainly by HGM. I hope experienced tournament participants will suggest additions/corrections. 1. Get an account (pm to HGM). 2. Start WinBoard. Create a saved game...

Re: On-line engine blitz tourney May

@HGM
Thanks for the tournament. I experienced several disconnections. Each time I could reconnect and did not miss any game. Internet signal seemed to be on all the time. Is there any way to avoid disconnections?

Regards

Problem with arena 3.5.1

My winboard engine "Nameless" has played many gauntlet matches on arena 3.0 without problem. A recently announced tournament I intend to join will be played on arena 3.5.1 . So I tried a gauntlet match (40/2 repeating) on arena 3.5.1 against an uci engine with epd start positions. It worked smoothly...

Re: I'm not very happy with the do {} while() statement in C

The more you use it, the more natural it will feel. I have a confession to make: I have a bunch of global variables in my code. :) I went through the pain of converting the code of "Nameless" to c++, the first line above is true. The process took less time than I anticipated. Also, I have the same ...

Re: On-line engine blitz tourney February

Thanks to HGM and other participants for this enjoyable tournament. Winboard worked nicely for me up to round 7. When the wait for start of round 8 seemed excessive I typed "mam lp 1" to know the status and the window disappeared. I restarted winboard immediately and signed in. But my attempt to res...

Re: Schooner Version 1.8

I get a "Failed - Virus detected" message. That is disturbing. There is a possibility. The file extensions have now become .8_32 and .8_64. These are likely to be unrecognized extensions in Windows 10. I could try renaming the engines: schooner1_8_32 schooner1_8_84 However, the file name itself has...
