Re: DJ13 Welcome Test "Reloaded"

Yeah, Rybka stays unbeaten until now, but also Komodo hasn't lost a single game, yet. Maybe these two engines like the long TCs most?!

Re: DJ13 Welcome Test "Reloaded"

Hi Catalin, since I usually use default settings for my tests (as an exception Critter uses "Everywhere" in the "Tablebase Usage" option) I will test Zappa with default settings, too. I am curious if Zappa Mexico II is a match to DJ13. At least they will be playing under the conditions people say th...

Re: DJ13 Welcome Test "Reloaded"

Draw rate rises dramatically with more time. Ok, far too few games in my test, yet. IPON (DJ13 vs. Top 18): http://www.team-oh.de/images/Inwoba.JPG DJ13-Test (DJ13 vs. Top 8): http://www.team-oh.de/images/DJ13-Test.JPG Maybe I will setup a second test after this one where Junior has to face the rest...

Re: DJ13 Welcome Test "Reloaded"

Hi Catalin, if Vitruvius is just a slightly changed version of Ivanhoe I won't buy it. But let's see if some independent testers will buy and test it. Information from the seller's website cannot always be trusted. I'm also eagerly waiting for the new Hiarcs and Shredder versions. Last year there se...

Re: DJ13 Welcome Test "Reloaded"

I think we have to wait for more games to draw such a conclusion. Please keep in mind that in the first test (that I aborted after ~18 games) Critter scored excellently against Junior. That was with 120min/40moves+60min, but only with 1GB Hash. Maybe Critter has problems with 4GB Hash? I don't know....

Re: DJ13 Welcome Test "Reloaded"

Hi Jouni,

you are right, draw ratio should increase a bit. Currently, Junior keeps the draw ratio very high against Critter, whereas it's 0% in the match against Houdini. :shock:

Best regards
Timo

Re: DJ13 Welcome Test "Reloaded"

Hi Teodoriu, thanks for your interest and for your warm words! I think I'll probably setup the match DJ13 vs. Deep Shredder 12 in the future. I'm not so sure about Zappa. Do you think it is still strong enough? Maybe you are right and it'll do well with 6 threads and long TC. Vitruvius is a brand ne...

Re: DJ13 Welcome Test "Reloaded"

Hi all, one of the computers had a crash last night (maybe too much undervolted), so the match against Stockfish was hanging. The game that they were playing at that time was broken off at a position that was clearly won by Stockfish. I checked that with 6-men Tablebases and adjusted the game as a w...

Re: DJ13 Welcome Test "Reloaded"

Hi Thorsten, you're totally right: I'm crazy using so much computers just for hobby purposes. My wife is telling me that all the time and is angry about the electricity bill... :oops: But I can tell you it is not as expensive as you might think. The PCs are all small cubes (Micro-ATX) fitting into a...

Re: DJ13 Welcome Test "Reloaded"

Hi Jouni,

thanks for your interest. Seems like Deep Junior likes the new conditions much more (4GB Hash, longer TC).

A total of 11 PCs are used for this match.

Best regards
Timo
