Re: have you seen the games being played at Rybka forum?

Why dont we do the same here? We could have the games listed under Correspondence Chess. It could be setup the same as the Rybka forum. There could also be tournaments or just single games. Set your own time, quit when you want, play when you want etc... thanks kgburcham After the election i would ...

Re: Yes, OK, he copied, but was it so esential?

To explain Rybka superiory with a matter of time available seems to me very very speculative. It supposes that in the same year or two -if that was the time saved- the other guys were been capable of the same thing. But: a) we do not know how much time is needed to produce the decisive code Vas did...

Re: Yes, OK, he copied, but was it so esential?

Yes? And where is the document that stablish between those two kinds of liberties? Fern What document? Could you explain it better? Perhaps I have to explain it better before: Rybka turned to be very useful for the chess community only after it was "raped" by chess programing fans reverse engeneeri...

Re: Yes, OK, he copied, but was it so esential?

I think this question is fundamentally a legal one, not a technical or competitive one. This is where big diferences emerge because it hinges on two questions: 1. Are laws an end in themselves or can they be evaluated in relation to how well they serve a purpose higher than themselves? 2. What purp...

Re: fire and other engines playing style

And if I may add, the biggest problem that, for example, Bob Hyatt has with it, is that it made Crafty unimportant as a learning tool (its biggest significance). Now anybody who wants to learn something more about chess programming looks into Robbo (and to a lesser degree into SF) and almost no one...

Re: fire and other engines playing style

This one: 2. Ippolit was inspired by Rybka (particularly the search), and then once published Rybka took some improvements from Ippolit (particularly a simplified eval) introduced in Rybka 4? But I see no "code copying" in either direction. I am pretty convinced that Ippolit was written from scratc...

Re: Yes, OK, he copied, but was it so esential?

and it is not logical to save time, in this as in anything, making use of what has been previously developped instead of reinventing the wheel? Did not the other guys tried the same thing? If Vas took, nobody else did? If they did, why they did not invent kind of Rybka themselves? which is the virt...

please see plot summary - "The Wizard of Oz". Please seek medical/psychiatric help. your support of cloning/copying/etc is _really_ unbecoming... All those who´ve been supporting the 2003 Iraq invasion need medical/psychiatric help, for sure. By the way, Bob, do you think it was a correct decison t...
