Re: Komodo with -0.07 draw score.

Dear Komodo team. !!! Congratulation !!! Komodo is doing real good things with -0.07 draw score. Wish you will take Komodo to further level. Neel Our contempt as you say is 0.07. As I have stated elsewhere, the idea is not to improve our results against weaker programs but simply to try to give Kom...

Re: Do any other engines show Komodo's unusual Ponder behavi

I play games by hand with ponder on using 4 cores. I use two machines side by side. Time control 30m 3s. Lately (last 3 weeks) I've used Komodo 6 against Stockfish and Houdini. The problem is that Komodo stops pondering for a move or two during the game. It always resumes pondering on the next move...

Re: Komodo run - Ingo list revisitied.

I pretty sure RH has the same kind of setup with avarage opponent rating as in Ingo list or CCRL, and after he's satisfied with contempt 0 strength of the engine, he then optimizes contempt to provide highest rating and than normalizes that one to 1 ;). I think that is likely. As has been discussed...

Re: Komodo run - Ingo list revisitied.

Here are the invidual guantlet results against the top few programs, note that Komodo wins almost 55% against Houdini 3 even at this blitze time control. We are now quite curious about how Houdini beats weaker programs more decisively than us. I don't know if you ppl just pretend or like to stress ...

Komodo run - Ingo list revisited

Ingo was kind enough to run a development version of Komodo against his standard list. To be sure, his test is not very favorable to Komodo which excells at longer time controls and this is a blitz time control list. Komodo beat every single program on the list including Houdini, but falls just shor...

Re: nTCEC - Stage 4 (Season 2) has started, we're down to 6!

After Rybka 3 came out, i think there was hardly any improvement for about 5-6 years, in computer chess. The only improvements in 5-6 years were: The clones, and Rybka 4 and Houdini, possibly amongst the clones. atleast it was the best from anongst the clones and was the only one to challenge Rybka...

Re: komodo wins stage 3

http://rocketdock.com/images/screenshots/T-Rex-Nachito.jpg Komodo on fire! Everybody out of the way! I propose a namechange. How about a special version, that has tablebases maybe and Don could call it 'nTCEC Rex' or 'Tablebase Rex' or more simply 'Rex'. I like the T Rex Fire pic. It looks tough. I...
