Re: Cutechess-cli: A command line tool for engine-engine mat

I even wish you could allow for uci options encoding in the cfg file : simply allowing a variable number of lines for each engines in the form : 2\uci.Name=value Hi Ilari! What are the news ? I come back with this former suggestion : a friend of mine just asked me to test some engine with no less t...

Re: Toga (not derivates like Grapefruit etc.) : only 32 bit?

There have been some 64-bits compiles of some of these Toga versions but they are a little weaker than their 32-bits counterparts even under 64-bits windows. Toga does not benefit from the 64-bit compiles because it is not bitbase-based. So you should better use the 32-bits versions even under 64-bi...

Re: The problem of opening theory in computer chess

Re: new junkbase

I see nothing interesting in these junkbases. My own one had more than 8 000 000 ones more than two years ago. I had a hell of a job pruning it so as to only keep a little less than 2 000 000 more interesting games. There was a post on playchess a few months ago where you could read that more than 3...

Re: How do you build a chess cluster?

Software to use the cluster is more complex because I am not aware of any current program that will use a cluster. GCP has said the next version of Sjeng will do so. A future version of Crafty (hopefully this year) will also do so. But right now the pickin's are slim to none. You don't need any spe...

Re: Strongest chess event ever - TODAY

Certainly not the strongest chess event. I believe correspondence chess tournament events when most players use rybka for analysis are at higher level.Uri Do you know where I can get freely downloadable database of Pgn's/cbh's from correspondence games?

Re: Trusted testers wanted

No, but it does mean that if you release it at all, you have to release the modified GPL code to the public. No! The GPL doesn't even mention the word "release". It talks about "conveying" the program, while the FAQ uses the terms "convey" and "distribute". The GPL requires that you make the modifi...
