Hello Guenther, I will miss your posts here as I perceive you as an intelligent/informed computer chess enthusiast. Since I'll miss you, I visited your new site.

New computer chess forum

I decided a few weeks ago to leave here, because the forum didn't meet my expectations anymore. (trolls, stupids, haters, you name it, they took over and produce meanwhile >75% of all posts, while most respectable, experienced and serious members vanished, guess why) It was not planned, but after tw...

Re: New engine: seeChess

Hi all! I just got into the hobby of chess engines, and I am finally happy enough with the start of this engine to release it. It is heavily based on Vice by bluefever, but it should play around 2200 ELO. It is written in C, and is UCI compliant. the GitHub link: https://github.com/bctboi23/seeChes...

Re: Put that PGN into the MRI

With the 2 digit precision PGN I get: Depths MIDG END1 END2 END3 BOOK TIME Stockfish_11-64 16.3 19.0 17.7 25.1 3.0 (moves) 0:22.75 Stockfish_11x2-6 14.8 17.0 15.9 21.3 3.0 (moves) 0:11.23 Your PGN must have a 3 digit precision, it explains the 0.24s difference for black. Hope you are satisfied with...

Re: Put that PGN into the MRI

About creating your own PGN format: :roll: Further complications: All the data systems are different. TCEC is different, and basically every other engine conte. Furthermore, sometimes the data is from white's perspective and sometimes for the side to move as far as scores go. And there are dozens o...

Re: Time handicap tournament. LC0 and SF11

(3)You don't understand, probably you never looked at the games at all. Even if you get twice as time over the whole game in average, time can be accumulated completely different (and will! - also depending on the exact type of tc). Some games will have a very few crucial moments, which decide the ...

Re: Time handicap tournament. LC0 and SF11

This is wrong and will defeat the whole purpose of the test. Bad openings cannot be cured by playing them for both sides. That is a widely spread illogical opinion. The only thing it does, is to help the suspected weaker program to push its score further to equality. (1)No, at worst it makes weaker...

Re: Put that PGN into the MRI

I am still not sure about point 3. , shouldn't it report then a 'suspect openings', if e.g. eval > 1.0 for White and White wins? Or does it consider the eval of the reply too? This would be a big improvement anyway. What, if you just record it as 'suspect', if the eval is >X for a few moves (let's ...
