Re: Don Dailey, 1956 -2013

Rest in peace, Don! We will miss you! You gave us great joy with your chess programs (especially Komodo) and your interesting postings here.

My thoughts are with your family.

A very sad day... :cry:

I really hoped to see a new version soon. As a Komodo customer (bought 4 + 5) I am waiting for an MP version for nearly one y...

Re: Deep Junior 13.3 vs. Deep Hiarcs 14 at 120min+30sec

Hi all, I've stopped the first test after 24 games because the opening situation was boring. Book learning caused many repeating opening lines (e.g. B52). Now the test is restarted with small, but wide books - book learning is disabled. Broadcast: http://team-oh.de/livegames10/ Games download: http:...

Re: 60 games Komodo 5 against Top4 at 120m+3s

Well, after 500 games on CCRL 40/40, Komodo 5 shows just a 3 Elo improvement over Komodo 4. 400 of the 500 games are AMD SSE4. So that is another set of reasonably long time control results (on AMD) that do not favour Komodo 5. I'm inclined to disregard the AMD factor, which just leaves longer time...
