Re: Nemorino 6 (NNUE)

No - as soon as SyzygyPath is set, only the external Syzygy-Files are used. Do you think such a mixed scenario makes sense?

Re: Nemorino 6 (NNUE)

Helllo Vivien, the lerning code is the the learner from Stockfish (including Stockfish Qsearch). I only created a generator for the training data, which helped me to create several 100 millions of Nemorino evals and store it in the sgen-format expected by the learner. Nemorino's net is worse than th...

Re: Nemorino 6 (NNUE)

Hello Günther,
regarding the default value: You are right I will fix it!
Regarding the compiles: The SSE2 compile is also a NO_POPCOUNT compile, so I assume it works on your hardware as well.
Best regards,
Christian

Re: A Crossroad in Computer Chess; Or Desperate Flailing for Relevance

Hello Andrew, hello IQ, I share Andrew's concerns. The exciting part of chess programming is gone. Analyzing your engine's weakness and using your brain to improve your engine's evaluation is over. This is automated now. But is this so much different than all the tuning we did before? For me the fun...

What data was the net trained on? Nemorino games/evals?
The net was trained on Nemorino evals at depth 12.

Nemorino 6 (NNUE)

I just released version 6 of Nemorino! Main new feature is the support for NNUE networks, which improves Nemorino's playing strength a lot! Nemorino comes with it's own network. The network format is slightly different than the original format from Stockfish as I removed the 64 "BONA_PIECE_ZERO" inp...

Re: Texel, Nemorino, Chiron questions!

Hello Frank, Nemorino is still there and development is steady but very slow. In the meanwhile version count has increased to 5.42 on the master branch (which is about 30 Elo stronger than 5.0) but I did not provide binary releases. The last weeks I integrated NNUE, which gave a 200 Elo improvement ...

Re: Latest Nemorino compile problems:

Hello Alan and Carl,
Sorry. I added som C++14 constructs without updating the Makefile. I will fix this in 5.34.
I don't provide precompiled binaries for dev versions anymore, so to get 5.32 you have to compile it yourself.
Thanks for reporting that issue,
Christian

Re: Eight-Headed Monsters IX

I created this frontend one and a half year ago when I had spare time, because I wanted to learn all these web techniques (javascript, node.js, websockets, ..). I did not had the intention to use it for transmitting TLCV based tournaments at all. Then I switched my internet provider (which only offe...
