Re: Official Release of Ethereal 11.75, supporting MultiPV

It's probably better if you could set the perfect setup for Ethereal 11.75 under Linux/cutechess and then if it's running perfect, my "obviously bad setup" is causing the problem.

Re: Official Release of Ethereal 11.75, supporting MultiPV

Thank you very much for your suggestions not related to Ethereal. This is about Ethereal 11.75 and let's focus on the problem reported. I would appreciate if you could run Ethereal 11.75 on Linux with cutechess with concurrencies you desire and report if you have the same problem that I posted like ...

Re: Official Release of Ethereal 11.75, supporting MultiPV

I withheld the publication of my rating list featuring Vajolet 2.2.8.0, Demolito 2019-11-03, Xiphos 0.6 and Ethereal 11.73 pending the fix of Ethereal 11.75. Since you asked, I am forced to publish it. First you will see the Ethereall 11.75 gauntlet with PGN's a few minutes from now and then the res...

I got the inspiration to use 32 concurrencies with cutechess when Ethereal became very strong and Andrew revealed that he was using 32 bit concurrencies in cutechess t...

Re: Official Release of Ethereal 11.75, supporting MultiPV

All chess engines I used in my tournament are windows executables with an .exe extension. I don't include Linux executables because they are normally stronger than the windows compiled equivalent which will skew the rating score.

Re: Official Release of Ethereal 11.75, supporting MultiPV

There is no specific hash configured for each engine but let cutechess-cli get the default hash values for each engine. This is the sample engine configuration which is bare from my engines.json file. Only 4 parameters are used consistenly for all the engines. [ { "name": "Ethereal 11.75 x64", "comm...
