Re: Sargon 1978 UCI Available

If I understand correctly sargon now only know not to play a move that force a draw by repetition when it has a better alternative. It does not have draw by repetition knowledge during the search(and note that you do not need hash tables for it but only to see that the line in the search leads to a...

Re: Sargon 1978 UCI Available

BUT I have put a Beta version at https://triplehappy.com/downloads/Sargon-1978-V1.01Beta.exe which is a strong release candidate. Anyone who wants to experiment with it, please feel free to do so. ...

Re: Sargon 1978 UCI Available

I was only trying to find Sargon strength, That was all, but still very good and strong chess, to be from 1978 :roll: I do appreciate your interest, you are motivating me to improve my project which is a good thing. I had another crazy idea this morning, to maybe (maybe) get Sargon 1978 to run much...

Re: Sargon 1978 UCI Available

I am starting to understand Chessqueen's posting style. She always quotes a recent post to the thread even though typically her new post has nothing to do with that particular post. I find this a bit disconcerting, but each to their own I suppose. Personally, I only quote things that I am following...

Re: Sargon 1978 UCI Available

Any UCI or CECP binaries available for Linux? Or any instructions to get it running on linux? No sorry. But it's a handful of simple standard C++ files and a single sargon-x86.asm 32 bit Intel assembly language file on Github. So someone who's motivated could no doubt make a Linux version. EnkoChes...

Re: Sargon 1978 UCI Available

I noticed that Sargon was Unable to hold at least a draw, So i decided to play against Heracles but without endgame TB to see if I could beat it, I came close but all that I accomplished was a draw, and I do NOT know how to convert a win with a Queen versus a Rook, which if I remembered correctly as...

Re: Sargon 1978 UCI Available

Sargon does NOT know the opposition principle, you can view it here and replay what Sargon played. You are quite correct, Sargon does not know the opposition principle. Sargon doesn't know anything really, it is just a thorough (but hence inefficient and bad) calculator that knows nothing except th...

Re: Unbalanced Human Openings V2.00 released

Whats new in V2.0? All 400000 endpositions were re-evaluated by KomodoDragon 1.0 (instead of Komodo 14 in UHO V1.0), because KomodoDragon 1.0 is around +200 Elo (!) stronger than Komodo 14. In the testing-results you can see, that the results of the testings are somewhat better with UHO V2.0, compa...

Re: Sargon 1978 UCI Available

I should add that I've tested the program, it runs fine and searches about 8 ply on my modest laptop at fast time controls. It will beat you if you don't pay attention. It beats me even when I do. I just finished another 20 games Against Sargon the unfix one with repetition bug game time control 15...
