Re: Official Release of Ethereal 11.75, supporting MultiPV

Not sure if you're brave or crazy or both. I think the max is less than that for sf, so I am not at all sure what happened. Usually, you engines have min and max for all settings. I guess that is past the max. But if you enter from the command line rather than a gui, it might do something crazy. Pe...

Re: Official Release of Ethereal 11.75, supporting MultiPV

A year ago, I was using Arena 3.5 as my primary chess engines tournament program using a maximum of 7 instances to run a tournament. I got the inspiration to use 32 concurrencies with cutechess when Ethereal became very strong and Andrew revealed that he was using 32 bit concurrencies in cutechess ...

Re: Official Release of Ethereal 11.75, supporting MultiPV

run chess engine windows executables because WINE is installed in my machine. Okay, well this would explain the original issue at least. Ethereal as far as I know does not work under WINE. I don't have specifics as to why, but I'm not interested since building a binary for Linux is trivial. This ve...

Re: Official Release of Ethereal 11.75, supporting MultiPV

Err, I have a few questions. Concurrency=32, on a 4 core machine. Is cutechess actually launching 32 games in parallel under those conditions? If so its a wonder that not every engine is having issues communicating with cutechess. You also said you are using a Linux machine, but your config has the ...

Re: Official Release of Ethereal 11.75, supporting MultiPV

There seems to be a problem with Ethereal 11.75 with cutechess running at chessowl tests. First I used the executables posted at this post but was surprised to see the partial results with Ethereal at the bottom of 23 opponents gauntlet. I stopped it and compiled the source with Ubuntu 18.04 which ...

Official Release of Ethereal 11.75, supporting MultiPV

Hello all, Its been been about 5 months again since the last release, and I'm back with another update, which is a quite a bit stronger than the previous release. I was forced to take some time away from chess development for quite some time dealing with some medical issues, but I think I'm back now...

Let it go, Daniel. He’s not worth it. Andy’s personality defect is punishment enough. Let him grouse with his fellow misanthropes.
This is the kind of banter I like to read. Not the drivel that Daniel writes. Well put Dkappe.

Re: Fritz 17

You were constantly taunting me with the crashes at the TCEC You have a bizarre understanding of the word "taunting". Pointing out that your engine crashes is not taunting. Pointing out that your engine continued to crash for multiple seasons is not taunting. Pointing out that its shameful that you...

Re: Fritz 17

It is interesting that you consider Scorpio to be a derivative of Lc0. I strongly suspect that Daniel Shawul would take exception to this description. He is not alone in his thoughts. Daniel or the original poster? If the latter, then you’ve produced a real head scratcher. Is leela chess, as the fi...
