Re: Latest patch to SF looks very promising

Hi Dann, Is this in anyway connected to SugaR xpro 1.2? I mention this because it does appear likely to me that Sugar xpro 1.2 is stronger that either the previous 9/17/17 version of SF or the 8/25/17 version of asmfish. If not, would you know what kind of patch or patches SugaR is using to make it ...

Re: CCRL 40/40, 40/4 and FRC lists updated (27th August 2017

Hi Graham, September 2nd. http://www.computerchess.org.uk/ccrl/4040/rating_list_pure_single_cpu.html How come Stockfish 8 was removed from the pure list? Thanks, SugaR XPrO 1.2 64-bit is in the Stockfish 'family' and has a higher rating. Why not test asmFish? It is also a member of the family.

Re: Tool to ECO classify EPD positions?

Scid vs PC has a file called scid.eco. I am not sure if it comes with the installation or if you have to do a small execution to create it. It contains 10,360 DISTINCT eco positions along with an extended (4 place) ECO value. Here is an outline for a potential tool: Put these 10,360 eco into a binar...

Re: Tony Mokonens' site?

Using 000webhost.com has its issues. I used them for free accounts, had problems, called them up, they wanted me to do etc, etc. I wasn't sure the problems would go away so I cancelled the accounts. A few months later, I set up new free accounts. Now when I have problems, I do not call them, and in ...

Re: When artificial intelligence evaluates chess champions

Perhaps they should have 2 studies. One for all moves made by the players, and one that only studied moves made past the openings, say about past 32 ply.

Openings have been researched more and more over the years, and that gives an advantage to players who are aware of that research.

Detecting false imitation games in Databases

False imitation games are widely prevalent in large human databases. Those databases are often used in creating computer books for engine-engine games. First, an example. Here are 4 versions of the same game coming from the same database. Hopefully one version is the real game. Which one is it? [Eve...

Re: Extract positions from PGN

I'll show how to do this using my tools, in particular "40H-EPD" (see www below). Step 1: Use PGN-Extract by David Barnes to get an "epd" version of the "pgn" file: PGN-Extract -Wepd --nofauxep -s -otemp.epd alpha.pgn Step 2: Using the "epd" version of the "pgn" file, use "epdMaterial" from "40H-EPD...
