Re: pre-announcement: 10x8 tourney

Off topic but I'd like to know how many computer programs are able to play spartan chess? I will probably create one, I guess the play is interesting. Any reference for the rules? Thanks.

Re: PGN Extract

If I take my database and break it up into 4 or 5, 2 GB files, i might have duplicate games over the different files From the pgn-extract help file. The -U flag suppresses output of the first occurrence of a particular game. This is useful when combined with the -d flag as a means of identifying ju...

Re: PGN Extract

Hey thank you I will give it a try. Just one quick questions. Lets say I have 2 duplicate games. They are the same just one file has the names of the players, while the other one is blank. How does it know to erase the one without names? I don't know how the pgn-extract.exe determined it, I did not...

Re: PGN Extract

I would try in DOS but I have no idea how to do that. If you want to remove duplicates using the pgn-extract.exe file use the following command line in dos. use the -d option to separate duplicates, use the -o option to output unique games. pgn-extract -d DuplicateGames.pgn -o UniqueGames.pgn orig_...

Re: CLOP for Noisy Black-Box Parameter Optimization

You can not do it with the gui. But you can open the data file with the command-line version, and redirect output to a file, then plot it with a tool such as gnuplot, for instance. I got this one, nice table. No, there is a problem with shrinking range. I will fix it. But you should not want to do ...

Re: PGN Extract

Windows XP 64 bit, network 4.0 installed. I guess I did not understand the read me file. I assumed since it says "drop your pgn file into the folder containing batch script and on the command line type process." I understood this to mean put my pgn file in this folder and double click on the proces...

Re: Interesting reflection on a past statement

I found this posted here back in 2008. Thought it was interesting considering what has transpired in recent times. http://www.top-5000.nl/int/fruit.htm "...I am sorry to say that whether an engine is someone's "own work" makes little sense to me, although I understand that tournament directors woul...
