Re: CSVN tournament, 7 + 8 December!

December 7/8, the 56th Programmer Tournament and 39th User Tournament will be held. This coincides with the ACTA tournament from Charles Roberson, maybe not so handy! Unfortunate that they are in the same weekend, but I prefer the "real" tournament, so I will be there! Looking forward to it.

New release: rofChade 2.202

This release is mainly a bugfix of release 2.2, it also contains a LMR tweak which will add around 10 elo. The bug: When the search was pondering or in infinite analysis mode, sometimes the search would return a "bestmove" prematurely. This is not correct and some GUI's can not cope with this bug an...

Re: RofChade and ponder

I really hope it's better than 2.0 :lol:

Version 2.202 also contains a LMR tweak which should be around 10 elo stronger than 2.2.

Re: RofChade and ponder

Hi Ronald, did you get crashes with the regular RofChade 2.2 @ Shredder Classic too ? Best wishes, G.S. (CEGT team) Hi Gerhard, I also got some crashes with version 2.2 so that is great... :lol: I also did another tournament with the bugfix version and this still didn't crash.So it seems the bugfix...

Re: RofChade and ponder

Hi Ronald, i don't think that these messages are the reason for the crashes @ Shredder Classic. Fizbo produces tons of error-messages @ Cutechess, for example "illegal move in pv" and so on ... but runs rock solid @ Shredder Classic with ponder=off/on. Best wishes, G.S. (CEGT team) I have downloade...

Re: RofChade and ponder

Thanks for testing this. I have found a bug in 2.2 related to pondering... One of the changes in 2.2 is to stop searching if regular time is up and there is a fail high in the PVS search for the position. The code was already there but commented out a couple of months ago, so when I reactivated it, ...

Re: RofChade and ponder

Hi ! The engine crahes very often under the classic gui. Not however under cutechess. But under Cutechess i get nearly every game one or more messages: "Warning: premature bestmove while pondering from RofChade". Perhaps this is the reason why RofChade crahes @ classic giu ?! Best wishes, G.S. (CEG...

Re: Nw release: rofChade 2.2

Ronald, are you tuning things step by step or everything in one big run ? How much iterations (of which algorithm?) does it takes usually ? I tune all the parameters in one run. When I tune only a few parameters (for instance when adding a new element in the evaluation) I always get worse results t...
