Re: Sargon 1978 - Bringing it back to life

Sargon II running on a Commodore VIC20 (coming on a cartridge) was my personal entrance to computer technology in 1982. Retro rules!! :-)

I will definitely have a look.

Re: On-line engine blitz tourney May

Meanwhile I played successfully under Windows/winboard. I also made some progress under Linux. It was the not working timeseal that prevented to connect. With the self-compiled openseal mentioned by Ronald it worked. But within a test game against rpiArminius the xboard crashed flooding the terminal...

Re: On-line engine blitz tourney May

Okay, thanks a lot. All that should help to make it work.

Re: On-line engine blitz tourney May

I have an account now for nightmare-chess.nl (thanks Joost for quick response) but it seems not trivial to get xboard under Linux (Ubuntu 20.04) running and connecting to this ICS. First I needed to learn that I have to install polyglot which is not part of the xboard package to run UCI engines. Now...

Re: On-line engine blitz tourney May

I asked for an account via email some minutes before but I never played on an ICS server before and would like to ask if there is some "training" server that I can use (even without account or with some guest access) to become familiar with the GUI and the commands and everything. Don't want to cras...

Re: Chess960 / Fischer Random Perft Wiki Results

Rubi switches to FRC/Chess960 automatically if it gets X-FEN castle chars. Makes things like this easier. At least if you only support normal chess and FRC and no other variants.

Re: PST for FRC

Does some of you change (or even discard) PST values when in FRC (or other variants) ? Any other eval feature you tuned for FRC ? I haven't changed anything in the FRC evaluation for now. And the result is really bad: https://github.com/Matthies/RubiChess/issues/203 Would be interesting if anybody ...

Re: test the intelligence of your engine

Hermann2.8 goes only to iteration 1 and no more than it. Boot6 write f5-f6 as best move with no stupid iterations Hermann and probably Boot (haven't tested) violate the UCI protocol: ... infinite search until the "stop" command. Do not exit the search without being told so in this mode! ... Edit: A...

Excellent news.

If I may ask, did you use the sfx or lcx positions?
The fixed-depth tests used the sfx. You said you had better results with them so I used them too.
