Re: Observator bias or...

I seem to have reached a plateau with Hamsters where new features and even bug fixes hardly contribute any elo to it. This would bother me little if not for the fact that each and every test starts by feeding me the illusion of improvement, and only later falls to the same old stats. A 700 games te...

Re: Observator bias or...

Yes, for this reason testing at a fixed number of nodes and recording the ime, rather than fixing the time, seems preferable. But of course you cannot get rid of the randomness induced by SMP that way. For this reason I still want to implement the tree comparison idea I proposed here lately. This w...

Re: OT: Checkers is solved!

They need to hire someone that knows PR, I can't find any of this news on the internet. An achievement like this needs to be heard. I agree with you, and it may get a blurb somewhere, but it seems most people don't think this is important news. If chess were solved today, people would say, "That's ...

Code: Select all

movei expects p and not P.
It can recognize progress but it does not recognize Progress so it is crashing.

Re: Genius is free chess engine with free source

You must be joking.....it's been around for 17 years, besides, that's not the point. Of course the author knows. Do you think that any of the kids that play with 8 core Rybka over at playchess knows about Genius? I would say that more than 50% of them have never heard of Chess Genius. Whether or no...

Re: Genius is free chess engine with free source

This guy deserves to be sued because he is using Genius as the name of a chess program. He is using the same name as Richard Lang's program, which existed long before and is known worldwide I hope Richard Lang has been informed about it. // Christophe Could well be an innocent error Christophe.
