You need to do std::flush() after printing each info string.
Such an elegant solution!! I cannot believe I have not found any mentions of it during my 12 days research on non-blocking input...
Thank you very much :)

Blocking input

Hello! I've been building my own engine in python (I know c++ is better but I chose differently) and created two threads - one is worker and does the calculation, one watchdog and waits for input. I've done the same thing in C++ for comparison and they behave identically - I cannot pass info strings...

Re: Building NN-powered engine

@hgm You're right, silly me. The only problem is passing the parameters on load then. I see some options in Arena but my idea of the adapter was mainly for the GUIs that do not have this option. Adapter could take care of it without the need for passing additional options from GUI's side. I admit I ...

Re: Building NN-powered engine

The point of the thesis should be using neural networks for playing chess - but whether or not I have to write myself all the other things is up to our head of institute - a very hyperactive guy, expert in the field of information technology and automation, author of some very advanced genetic algor...

Re: Building NN-powered engine

@jpqy thank you for the sources! @brianr I am aware of the hardware requirements but I only have 1050 Ti at my disposal. If things go well though I will get my hands on some Titan our institute has - I will have to fight for getting it once I am reasonably sure the project works and it will not be j...

Re: Building NN-powered engine

Thank you all for valuable comments!

I know about Leela and I will definitively take a look at it. I know chess is a very hard task to do but I love the game and it will give me more motivation. I will discuss using python chess and give it a try if allowed.

Building NN-powered engine

Hello guys! I was assigned a master's thesis with a goal of building an chess engine based on Neural Networks. I do have an idea but I wanted to ask you, experts in the field, what you think about it. I would like to build the engine using Python and Keras. I found a method of compiling .exe file fr...

Re: TCEC Season 10 announced

These are GREAT news, no matter what one 'Henk van den Belt' thinks. I don't think the organizers will hold him at gun point to watch the games but maybe they should for his comments. I am looking forward to the event, hope we see another round without opening boos as those are very exciting to watch!

Re: Position analysis

I suspect I didn't fully understand the question, if it was to find engines/hardware which can solve it quickly, or a way to get IDeA working on it (impossible I guess), or if there's a better system. Maybe, it was all of that. As matter of effectiveness, an automated analysis process isn't to be c...
