Re: Is EMAN the future number one?

Nowadays I can get such a performance with Brainfish without Cerebellum (whatever that is) and it's people on much faster hardware WITH Eman that can't touch me. Hm... Brainfish without Cerebellum is a quite "normal" Stockfish (or -Derivative). Cerebellum is the most important component of Brainfis...

Re: Is EMAN the future number one?

I believe THE MAIN REASON the sources remain private is that the author has built a reputation in the InfinityChess community (a lot of people use his engine there, some have been using it to win money in their online torunaments) and it would get ruined if the sources were revealed and original co...

I'm not interested in trying to explain this again, so I'll just leave it at "I hope you're trolling" ;-)
You don't have to explain anything. It's enough if you have a little humor... ;-)

Re: Is EMAN the future number one?

Most of the above programs are open source and you can examine for yourself and decide if you think someone has taken code beyond fair use. Quite frankly, I do not understand why people think it is OK to break the law. It is just as puzzling to me as the original law breakers. Hmm... I'm not so sur...

Re: Is EMAN the future number one?

Eman is a strong engine (based on Stockfish) but since the engine author has made it extremely difficult to test his "creation" without running over to the Infinitychess forum and begging for a test copy. Can't confirm that. I wrote a mail to the programmer Khalid Omar, and he sent me the engine fo...

Re: Is EMAN the future number one?

You're probably right. Seeing the source code might simply show that this "engine" is basically Stockfish. :wink: ...but the Eman programmer himself says nothing else!? :roll: https://glarean-magazin.ch/2020/06/01/computerschach-die-besten-engines-der-welt-update-31-best-chess-engines-tournament/#n...

Re: Is EMAN the future number one?

Making claims about which engine is best based on 60 games each :D Please think about that: Statistics are no substitute for personal judgment. (Folk wisdom) When I think of "statistics", I think of the hunter who shot the first time just to the left of a rabbit, and the second time just to the rig...

Re: Is EMAN the future number one?

But Eman is not an engine. It is more like a plugin to a GUI. Hm... This GUI plays chess pretty damn good... ;-) [Event "AMD-Ryzen 7 - 16 CPU (2min+2sec)"] [Site "Glarean-Magazin"] [Date "2020.??.??"] [Round "?"] [White "Eman-Topshots (4)"] [Black "Komodo 13.3 - Eman 5.5"] [Result "*"] [Annotator "...

The "creator" should make the source code available, showing respect for Stockfish's GPL license. Maybe then his creation might be considered and respected as a quasi-independent engine product.
Opinions differ on that... ;-)
