Re: Robbolito 0.09 New Edition VS Rybka 3

[quote=" The sites who blacklist robbo are simply going to get less traffic and interest over time.[/quote] I think that is the point! So many people such as yourself seem to be confirming that Robbo is a clone. Therefore it and it's "engineers" should not be validated on these types of sites. If en...

Re: Junior 2010 vs. Rybka 3, one of the best games I ever sa

I am finding Deep Junior 2010 to be an exceptionally fun engine to play against and a really good engine for alternative analysis!!

Which is why I have engines to begin with. :)

Re: Stockfish 1.6.2

Hi Marco! I had asked earlier about the Stockfish and the analyze game mode in the Shredder 12 GUI. The problem being that Stockfish would not enter it's analysis in that particular mode. That was 1.5. I just though that I would let you know that for whatever reason Stockfish 1.6 is working perfectl...

Re: Stockfish 1.5 or 1.6 Under Deep Shredder Interface

Hello, I am trying to install Stockfish under the Deep Shredder Interface. I am installing it as a UCI engine but DS won't recognize it. I seem to have a problem calling it a Winboard engine also. Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks I had also had no problem installing Stockfish 1.5 in Deep S...

Tactical Factor in Ktulu 9

As I said in an earlier topic, I have become re-interested in Ktulu 9 due to some information that Frank Quisinksy had shared with me in a recent post. Another discussion came up as to what the tactical factor setting may or may not do regarding Ktulu's performance. (Tactical factor is the only real...

Re: What does tactical factor setting mean in Ktulu 9

Someone has to compare the STS test suite for default Klutu 9 and Klutu 9 with tactical factor at Zero. To get some idea if better or worse with lower tactical factor. I don't have the test suite but I am doing a little experiment with Ktulu 9 that I am hoping will shed a little light on the tactic...

I was using tactical factor 20 in ...

What does tactical factor setting mean in Ktulu 9

My interest in Ktulu has been resparked as I have found out is a really good at endgames. I was trying to tweak the settings and there really aren't any except for: tactical factor. The default is 30----30 what I don't know? I am assuming that if I set this higher the engine will look perform better...

Re: Naum is back ...

This is good news for chess enthusiasts. May be Zappa too will come back. A lot is happening now in computer chess. Crossed fingers for that 8-) Dr.D Hey Dr. D! Do you know what I need to do to get Zappa to insert it's analysis automatically into a game during analyze game mode for the Shredder 12 ...
