Nakamura's position still drawn but it looks like he will blunder and lose the 4th game, leading to 2.5-1.5 for Dragon.
I find it amusing that people are posting sf12 evals in the chat, given how much stronger Dragon is in odds play. :-)

Re: A0 Lite...PyChess Engine...Relaxchess Engines?

A0lite is a python script, so no exe file. First you’ll need python3 and pip. I use virtualenv but you can install directly. Install badgyal (https://github.com/dkappe/badgyal) with pip install git+https://github.com/dkappe/badgyal.git . Then check out the master branch of a0lite. On Windows, a0lite...

Re: Beyond Leela Zero ( Leela will get part of Stockfish blood)

Sounds like cheating but I'm not an expert on that. So this is essentially an outgrowth of something I did with Ender a few years ago. I called them “dodgy positions,” but “value repair” seems like a better name. Stockfish is only used to identify problematic positions (where the sf eval is convert...

Re: Black Diamond Android App with NN Night Nurse 0.3

I’ve tried to install it on two different android devices. Both times it asked if I wanted to install an update. Both times it failed.

Re: Komodo 14.1 Release and Dragon Announcement

If they choose Puff the Magic Dragon they can have their own theme song :twisted: Speaking of theme song, HR Puff-n-Stuff would be good, but there have been 5 engines with that name: one French, one Spanish, one Polish and two(!!) Mongolian. Of course they’ve been abandoned for 30 years, but is tha...

Re: Night Nurse 0.3 is coming along

Thanks, Dietrich! Nurse's still a great attacker, judging by the game you posted. :D An argument against the ‘all NNUE engines play the same’ crowd. Here a fun one, 60+1 on the same sf12 executable.

Re: Night Nurse 0.3 is coming along

The latest net, a long time in coming. 1.5x scaling looks about right, so the hard coded 1.25x of sf12 seems to work ok. NiNu-0.3 at 1.5x looks to be about 40 elo better than Ninu-0.2 at 2.5x. Enjoy.

Night Nurse 0.3 is coming along

Scores have inflated a bit, and it’s not completely helpless vs sf12 anymore. Both running 1+1 on the same sf12 executable.
