Re: Never thought that Alliestein was in the same level with LCZero and Stockfish !

Even more shocking are the two crashes of Stockfish due to a faulty file. One more crash and it's out. The participant authors took a vote on whether or not the SF people should be allowed to replace that file. but because one voted no, it won't happen. Which file of Stockfish was faulty? After man...

Re: Crash by Crystal v1.1

I found what causes the missing. I used the tool "Process Test Sets" of Fritz 11 GUI. For this I changed the .pgn file to .cbh file with Fritz 6 because the tool can use .cbh file only. It is pity but Fritz 6 one .pgn position could not change to .cbh position - here happened the missing. For contro...

Re: Crash by Crystal v1.1

I don't want to bother you, but the pgn in my download ( 89.126 Bytes ) also has 287 pos and not 286 Anyway, I just noticed the difference. O.K. What kind of chess GUI you use? I use Chessbase (Fritz) GUI. Maybe one of position in the .pgn file is defective and Chessbase GUI can not read it. You ma...

Re: Crash by Crystal v1.1

Hmm, i downloaded this again and it contains 287 pos. At least the ACT.epd (23.529 Bytes) I used the .pgn file, as you could guess it. What is the issue? The Alternative Chess Test.pgn also contains positions. I use .pgn or .cbf files only and no .epd. If you need in .pgn the 287.position use a too...

Re: Crash by Crystal v1.1

... I repeated the endgame puzzle test (solving time was 90 sec/position) and I got: 1. Crystal 300819 (v1.1) - 271 solved out of 286 (average solving time = 6.4sec) 2. Stockfish 190825 - 259 solved out of 286 (average solving time = 9.3sec) So Crystal is a good puzzle solver but it is weak for pla...

Re: Crash by Crystal v1.1

I run Crystal v1.1 on my machine (Ryzen 7 1800x 8x4000Mhz Windows 7 64bits) and I did not experienced any running issue. But I was disappointed by its power: Its result was against Stockfish (190825) in a blitz match (1min + 2sec/move) 0:6 with 24 draw (30 games with opening book and reversed color)...
