Re: New 6-piece tablebases

Why not 0.00 ? and why only 1 tb access ?? If I am not mistaken it is called swindle mode. If the root position is available for probing it will elimate bad moves and then play the best move from an alpha beta search, putting pressure on the opponent and luring him to make a mistake. Exactly. It wo...

Re: AlienBoard: android app for chess variants

You are like a zombie that won't die. Stop sending me pms. This is the third time I have made it clear I have no interest discussing with you. Get a pseudo, dig up an old troll account or something... On painful feeling, I am referring to painful feelings when MY software was ignored. I did NOT mak...

Re: Anand + Anand + Anand ( lets talk about GM Gelfand )

I know Anand, I have talked with Anand, I played a fast game with Anand -draw-, I like Anand but.,....a hell with Anand now. You are almost using all real state here. Bothered regards Fern Most people when they see two GMs with an Elo difference of 70+ immediately think that the player with the hig...

Re: AlienBoard: android app for chess variants

1. I never insulted Nebiyu. I know better than to insult something like Nebiyu, which is many months of your labor. I have written large projects (though not chess software) that have been ignored and know the painful feeling. Why should we ignore Nebiyu? Also see comment #2 about ARM CPU optimizat...

Re: AlienBoard: android app for chess variants

Well you can't seem to help yourself from throwing pot shots at me. First you insult my dear dear Nebiyu, saying Scorpio should be the one I should work on. Then when given your wish, you then attacked Scropio too with a Yikees. I gave you the benefit of the doubt but if you are like the rest of th...

Re: AlienBoard: android app for chess variants

Sure why not, it is just adding a checkbox in preferences. Great, that would be useful at least for me. If I ship it with the apk, it has to be put elsewhere to be used, as the former is read only. I see. Probably, a way to enable book loading and putting it on the sd card is good enough. Yikes, I ...

Re: AlienBoard: android app for chess variants

Well the reason I am coding fast is because I already had a working java gui that does everything. So I am only porting it to android platform, but when that runs out probably soon, I will be slow I am glad you liked the menu. Did you also like the highlighting scheme? You can make many chess moves...

Re: Some suggestions

YAWN² :mrgreen: I guess this was the most boring WCh ever. Let's forget it fast... Exactly. My suggestion to FIDE is to increase the stakes for the players to give more incentives to produce entertaining chess. 1. More games. The winner should win at least 6 games. 2. The winner gets a Bobby Fische...

Re: Anand vs. Gelfand WCC 2012 started

What? Kramnik was commentating that Anand has pressure on Black and a time advantage, and right there and then Anand offers the draw, which Gelfand of course accepts. Just as I decided to start watching... It's a draw....I've had a similar position against Bright a couple of days ago and I was play...

Re: AlienBoard: android app for chess variants

Thanks for the latest features and the speed in implementing them. You changed a lot including a simple menu that clarifies what you want to do on startup. I must note that Scorpio is a good engine to play against at least for me. It is not that strong for me on the android tablet, however its compe...
