Re: A letter of thanks and gratitude to the scientific community, they describe a door through which tomorrow is glimpse

Thanks for your post. You have chosen the wrong opponent, it should be Lc0 not BlueFish so you can show all of us how you can create fortresses against Lc0. Good game between Lc0 and BlueFish that you posted, it is an unusual perpetual check where more than half of the board is used for the perpetu...

Re: A letter of thanks and gratitude to the scientific community, they describe a door through which tomorrow is glimpse

I agree that computers are sometimes not very wise: opponents like the one you posted above should be given a initial rating of 4000 instead of 2400 so that normal computers like mine would be gaining points when draw. Now this rating seems totally off around 2000. Do you mind filing this complaint...

Re: ChessBase questions

Yes, indeed. - It is possible to bridge, but Threads, Hash settings are messed up(due to it does not see the actual machine), so I hard-coded them in the engine. - No, same as above, hard-coded it. - It shows wrong hardware specs and no place to change it. - I have created a new account and it does ...

ChessBase questions

A few thoughts came across about playing in CB's engine room, I have a few questions(if this is a good place to ask): - Is it possible to bridge the engine with InBetween(since the CB client is Windows only)? - Does it properly handle engine options(i.e. Syzygy, local books)? - Where does the hardwa...

Re: ChessDBCN

Hello, This is a great tool! I'm trying to do tools around it and i found something odd, nodes above 50 move rule: https://www.chessdb.cn/cdb.php?action=queryall&board=2rr1bk1/pb3pp1/4qn1p/2pp4/8/1P2P1PP/PBQN1PBK/2R1R3%20b%20-%20-%20258%20159 It ignores move counters entirely and rules may be handl...

Re: My failed attempt to change TCEC NN clone rules

So to summarize, it's a story of how two dictators pretending to be open to opinions while one suggests the other shouldn't and the other suggesting to keep it up.

P.S. I was also told that I get to decide many things but in fact my opinion doesn't matter, either. :D

Re: ChessDBCN

Agreed. You specially want to feed it stuff and come back after a few hours, it's a kind of live database powered by AI, you need to let it chew in the positions so the bad lines fall to the bottom of the ranking. What I found curious is that back when I started using it, the DB size was already at...

Re: ChessDBCN

Very nice work. Could you tell a bit more about the 'large cluster' which runs the analysis engine? Also which version of SF is used and will it change with time? There are two queues: one is for move exploration, each position is evaluated by a shallow SF search on multi-PV(depth 12), sieving from...

ChessDBCN

There has been a few threads and related discussions about my work on chess, now it has came to some fruition. I have built and documented unified APIs for both chess and Xiangqi, with probing interfaces to demonstrate their usage. https://www.chessdb.cn/queryc_en/ The APIs will provide online posit...
