Re: Database snapshot

finally there exists a "Discover" program people can run, which loads any UCI-compatible engine and play games, contributing moves encountered during the process. I tried to compile ChessDBDiscover and it seems to work. Created an engine dir and put engine.exe, a renamed stockfish dev engine, then ...

Re: Banksia - Yet another Chess Tournament Manager

"inclusive players" is used to lock an (or some) engine to matches, including sides. This function can help in your case. To make two engines play again each other which one (engine A) always plays on white side (it is locked to all games and locked to one side), you may edit some fields as below: ...

Re: Database snapshot

See there is no 'winrate'. Its winrate should have been 0.0 assuming winrate has a range [0, 100], %. There is no winrate field for mate scores or exact TB scores(not yet available). It is by design. All right then I would suggest you add {... "winrate": "not available"} to be consistent with the q...

Re: RSIF as alternative to armageddon

Yeah, but I don't like things that are "more complicated than necessary" maybe something like "50-move rule takes effect if no pawn move, capture, threefold repetition, stalemate or insufficient material has happened in the last 50 moves."

Re: RSIF as alternative to armageddon

Since stalemate is probably not too common, perhaps just switching it to the Black column would bring the results close to 50-50? Or if the result was then too favorable for Black, making stalemate a loss for whoever had no move might make it about fair. I agree, but it seems premature as Deuterium...
