Re: On-line engine blitz tourney January

Reading the ICS chat this morning, it seems Minic has issues during some games. Sorry for the inconvenience. It seems to only happen at the very begining of games ? Is this what happened ? Minic not playing the first move ? In fact this is an error at the very end of the previous game. Will be fixed.

Re: New engine releases 2020

Minic 1.32 https://github.com/tryingsomestuff/Minic/releases (official release) Vivien always announces new versions of Minic in the thread titled "A complete 2000 lines of code engine". Yeah sorry, still using my "minic main topic". It is maybe better if I announce update here ? The 1.34 is out now.

Re: A complete 2000 lines of code engine

Still, awesome improvement. And Minic is doing really well at TCEC, hope to see it promote to L2 :mrgreen: It won't unfortunately ! because of a late minute crash and a good games from opponent. The issue may be fixed by this new release : 1.32 I hope to see it in some bonus match like the FRC tour...

Re: A complete 2000 lines of code engine

Well a lot of effort and CPU time has been involved in Minic debugging the last few days before QL from TCEC crew and other engine authors, so this is clear to me that L2 engines deserve the same good treatment at least.

Re: Warm your engines

Another one, from Minic iCE game seems pretty sharp https://lichess.org/2MyRcPV7#46 [d] 2rr1k2/5Ppp/1p6/p2B4/n7/4P3/5PPP/R4RK1 w - - 1 24 Here Minic played Bb3, that was probably a bad decision ... Reanalyzing this position at home with more time, Minic goes for Bb7 but never stick to Be6 that is SF...

Re: Perceptron for reduction / extension / other things

Using a neural net for anything devolves into some manner of alpha/leela methodology. In this case we are talking about having a policy network as found in the original alpha papers (for the first go engine, I believe) The policy network would generate a weight for how important a particular move (...
