Weakening Komodo 13.2.5...

Hi Guys, I have been messing around with Komodo and the Skill Leve (from 1-25) setting and found that it moves instantly when on reduced skill level... This is not good for realistic training, because as Lance Perkins (creator of Thinker) said back in 2008 6. Humans are not capable of 10 moves in 1 ...

Re: Banksia GUI released

it would be nice to see an option: '' Create Engine''. :) :) BSG has functions to add engines but not create. Can you tell me more? Thanks I think he means that when you change UCI options (contempt, evaluation options, polyglot book, etc) it'd be nice to be able to "save as" a new instance of the ...

Re: Banksia GUI released

Is there a chance to support DGT eletronic boards ? Sorry, not for the coming time. I don't have those boards either. Really impressed by this GUI, and the speed of your progress! I'll be willing to pay for it when it reaches official release stage. 8-) For now, could you make it possible to resize...

Re: Lee Se-dol retires in face of AI...

I wonder if the relentless advance of the machine was a factor in Gary Kasparov's retirement? No, I don't think so...in some part yes, but overall no. Kasparov retired because he realized he was losing strength and his big secret (prepping openings with Deep Junior 6 and 7 at the time) had been dis...

Re: Carlsen is back with all his Opening knowledge....

His failure in 960 -- for real? No idea. I didn't even follow the event, but I saw people on several forums and social media networks talking about Carlsen being "exposed" in 960, or other such claims...from scores of unconnected people. So I assume something happened. My assertion is that if he di...

Re: Carlsen is back with all his Opening knowledge....

In Normal Chess Carlsen is back to his element with all his great memory of all his Opening lines and variations he will beat all his opponents and GM SO will probably get 3th place behind Nakamura or even 4th behind Nepomniachtchi https://grandchesstour.org/2019-grand-chess-tour/2019-tata-steel-ch...

Re: Fritz 17

Recently when Komodo 13.2 came out, I saw the new "personalities" feature and since this is the area of computer chess that interests me most, and I can afford the small fee, I bought it. I guess the question is: was it worth the asking price? Did it provide anything that the best Rodent personalit...

Re: Fritz 17

Why would you need to buy one ? Long answer: This is unrelated to Fat Fritz, Stockfish has been #1 chess engine for years, and it has been free, yet people keepe buying other commercial chess engines like Komodo or Fritz. They need to buy it because others need to sell them. My computer is 9 years ...
