Re: Komodo 13.2.5 released

Incoming Komodo 13.2.5.5 for next version in its way to Komodo 13.2.6. I guess this will delay Komodo 14 so MTCS Komodo remains a commercial exclusive for longer :mrgreen: Major number releases are based on calendar year with a major release in the spring to sync wth Chessbase's schedule. Assuming ...

Given Google 's history of faking scientific milestones (look AlphaZero), and engaging with pseudo-science, I have little surprise that most experts are extremely sceptical about Google' s latest PR campaign.
Perhaps I missed something but what about AlphaZero was "faked"?

Re: Komodo 13.2 Release

I look forward to the new version in the Google Play Store. :) It is being worked on. Unfortunately Google is imposing strict security on apps making things more diffcult. The Komodo Android App lets you set some paramamters in the engine App to control it even if a GUI is running it which is a gre...

Re: Next Komodo vs human match

Yet another crushing win for Komodo. Seems that Contempt and MCTS go very well together! We'll play another game beyond the scheduled four, I want to give him a chance to score. Fantastic result, clearly ready for the next level! What is the contempt value for this match? Even with Komodo MCTS is r...

The Android Komdoo 13 app was just updated to 13.1, so anyone with that app should be able to get the update now. It was in a testing phase and not fully released until today.

I will pass this along. We have an internal Play Store entry for testing, and maybe the version number did not get updated on the "live" version. If you se Skill level up to 25, it is K 13.1.

Years ago we got a speedup reducing the hash table entry size to 12 bytes. But even more recently found a speedup raising it to 16 bytes (and it also game us more ...
