Re: 2007 World Computer Rapid Chess Championships: games pgn

A draw was not enough we had to win so when we got into the Father type position I changed contempt to the value of 1 pawn this obviously messed things up. How did you do that? In the middle of a game you can change the parameters of Hiarcs without the need to restart Hiarcs? Or did you restart/re-...

Re: intel compiler and debian etch

I can't reproduce that so I am not sure. But I suspected that maybe it tried a simple test and it failed, needing the LD_LIBRARY_PATH set properly. And it is possible it needs some 32 bit libs that are optional. Did Debian install ask anything like "include 32 bit application support?" or something ...

Re: 2007 World Computer Rapid Chess Championships: games pgn

It is not correct. It did alter the final outcome. Uri Uri, you may be right. BTW, instead of a convention, do you not think that it would help to have all the rules in Black and White? Even if Harvey did it knowingly, it was against the convention, and not against the rules. Anyway, had it been ag...

Re: 2007 World Computer Rapid Chess Championships: games pgn

The lesson I have learned here is after a tournament whatever the result just to keep quiet like all the other programers do. Attempting to give some insight as to what was actually happening at the time is a waste of time - in future when we score 12/14 I will keep quiet. Hi Harvey, Congrats on th...

Re: 2007 World Computer Rapid Chess Championships: games pgn

Hi Harvey, I think that it is a general rule in computer chess not to allow changing setting during the game. Without that rule you have not computer chess but type of advanced chess. I agree. If Harvey is correct(and i guess he is) that when you change an engine's parameter while it is thinking an...

Re: 2007 World Computer Rapid Chess Championships: games pgn

A minor oversight in the debate was to mention that Harvey couldnt be accused of cheating because how could he if he now reported here exactly what he had done during the game. Here it is obviously confused what someone thought about his own behavior and what that meant from an objective perspectiv...

Re: 2007 World Computer Rapid Chess Championships: games pgn

Well, we could of course still discuss if it is a good idea, in cases where top programs break the rules in order to enlarge their advantage over their opponents, to deny others the right to object against this, just because their programs are mediocre... :roll: i will leave you to discuss this is ...

Re: 2007 World Computer Rapid Chess Championships: games pgn

well there you go again do i need an engine to think your post is basically a troll considering it was made well AFTER Harvey explained what happened? your post sounds like sour grapes to me probably because your engine lost in previous matches (perhaps even to Hiarcs) and i dont know what your eng...
