Re: I moved the thread Cyclone xTreme Gauntlets

Hi Rainer Yes everybody is free to test Cyclone and publish results. I am wondering if you are informed of what Norman Schmidt did in the recent past though. I suggest you read the following threads : http://www.talkchess.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=22209 XyclOps was a Toga clone that Norman Schmidt ...

Re: I moved the thread Cyclone xTreme Gauntlets

The thread was moved to the moderation archive. I do not know if ordinary posters can see that forum. Likely, we will have to move back harmless branches. Yes, please do it. Don't let it be, don't let it bleed. Deleting a whole thread won't be exactly brilliant. It means an incomplete chronicle of ...

Re: I moved the thread Cyclone xTreme Gauntlets

Most of the thread had nothing objectionable in it, but I don't have time to sort out the problem posts now. Later on, we may sort things out and repost some of the older messages. I've reported a bug, the bug was corrected today, perhaps this was one objectionable issue :) BTW, where has been the ...

Re: WMCCC 1984 Glasgow - Who is tha guy?

It was a Mephisto III Exclusive-S; 68000 Motorola 16 Bit, 12 MHZ, 64 KByte ROM, 16 KByte RAM. The MUNICH Board was released a few months later in 1985.

Same to you

Re: WMCCC 1984 Glasgow - Who is tha guy?

Hallo, I shot this picture as a member of the Mephisto-Team in the tournament room of the Ingram Hotel, Glasgow. The name of this young man is Lars Hjorth . He was the Co-Programmer of the Conchess-Modul by Ulf Rathsmann and he also did his job as an operator on the tournament board. I faced him dur...

Re: Thinker 5.4 2CPU <-> Thinker 5.4 4CPU

I'm not a believer in intra-family matches (matches between different versions of the same engine). These matches tend to have an increased number of draws because the same basic engine does not "see" a weak position of its family member as often as another engine would. The intra-family matches ca...

Re: Thinker 5.4 2CPU <-> Thinker 5.4 4CPU

>The "threads" option in Thinker is the number of search threads. However, Thinker has a master thread for monitoring the search. This means that when you specify 4 threads, there are actually 5 active threads. If your machine only has 4 CPUs, this would be really bad. I suggest that you try "threa...

Re: Thinker 5.4 2CPU <-> Thinker 5.4 4CPU

In my tests I have problems to see the advantage of 4CPU with Thinker 5.4. Here is one example I made using the same openings in eng-eng matches without pondering (for CEGT 40/20) 1 Thinker 5.4 Ai x64 4CPU 2200 +12/-11/=27 51.00% 25.5/50 2 Fruit 2.3.5m x64 2CPU p15 2200 +11/-12/=27 49.00% 24.5/50 1...
