Re: Arasan 21.1

Thank you Jon. It's good to see you never run out of ideas.

May I ask you what value you recommend for syzygy probe depth if I use the full 6-man set and have them on SSD?

Re: CT800 V1.32 released

Thanks Rasmus. I have recently tested v1.31 and it scored worse than 1.11 and v1.30 (see here: http://www.computerchess.org.uk/ccrl/404/cgi/compare_engines.cgi?family=CT800&print=Rating+list&print=Results+table&print=LOS+table&print=Ponder+hit+table&print=Eval+difference+table&print=Comopp+gamenum+t...

Of course, why anyone would want to run Godel in Winboard mode under CC is a moot point
Tirsa, when an engine is both WB and UCI and the GUI is WB and UCI capable as well, why do you think that UCI mode is the preferable selection?

Re: Gödel 4.4.5 released

Thanks Juanma. May I ask you how to set hash size in WB mode? Whatver value I set in the .rc file Arena always reports 91 MB. In Arena just press CTRL + 1 and set the hash size. You must start a new game to see the change of the memory size in the status bar. Remember that you can't play against Gö...

Re: New chess engine '^2-chess' - release 1.1.0

Just occurred to me that I don't even know what name to include with the engine should we test it for our list. So, just for the sake of my report to my bosses, would you tell me who you are? Just read the chronology ;-) A hint: He already authored Hactar Edit: Actually this was the reason why I bu...

Re: Xiphos 0.4

Thanks Milos. I hope your prediction of improvement can be confirmed, it has been so often that self-play suggested too optimistic expectations.

Re: New chess engine '^2-chess' - release 1.1.0

1.2.0 https://gitlab.com/tsoj/squared-chess/tags/1.2.0 I hope this gets rid of the time forfeits as well. I am currently getting every 7th game forfeited on time with version 1.1.0 under Arena 3.5.1. BTW, I see that the default hash size is 140 MB. If I set 256, will it be rounded down (or up?).
