Re: sting 15

I see that the auto-playing is an interesting new tool and you like it. One more example. When your longanimity (searching) ends, you can go forward and start searching from the new place or (or next) can check the new position by auto-playing.

Re: Stockfish and Multi-PV

Lots of truth in there. We need a CCRL shorty rating list. A couple of years ago I (out of curiosity) played a shorty match between 2 equal rated versions of Stockfish and Komodo and the latter was crushed.

Re: Mortimer trap test bug in Stockfish 10

As you may know Mortimer trap is a famous trap in Ruy lupez openining .(google it and you’ll find it easily). Also it’s a valid test for new chess engines!

Re: Honey-XPro Release

Well ok then. Sorry to take up your time. For the record, pretty much every other Stockfish and derivative that has Analysis Contempt available as an option shows in Chessbase GUI. Honey and McBrain and McCain do not... I'm guessing it's not CB but something on your end. <shrug> CPW I'll take a loo...

As a follow up, here is a screenshot of settings. I want this engine to have contempt for black only... Are these correct? https://i.imgur.com/F5r1OAs.png CPW Yes - you have it correct for black only with contempt set to 22 during analysis. I personally prefer contempt off during analysis. With res...
