Re: How strong is the new Fire 1.5 xTreme?

Thank you Wael, don't worry if the final results are not encouraging. From my perspective, game analysis is more important than game results.

Re: How strong is the new Fire 1.5 xTreme?

Why not posting the parameters? The number of testers will increase and the results will be more reliable... It's not that I don't want to release them....Eventually I will when I have solid results related to the performance.... Besides,from a personal experience,when you post a special set of par...

Re: My choice

I chose my path. After all the discussions on the subject Rybka x Ippo, I decided to give credit to who deserves one. I made a donation to the development of Houdini, I'm not trying to influence anyone to do the same, I'm wanting that you know by me, and not by others. The truth must be told, even ...

Re: Fabien's open letter to the community

To me, an FSF decision would be good enough to give finality, which I was really hoping was what we all wanted. But all you needed was an accusation against non-rybka products. But for the Rybka product itself, an accusation isn't good enough, even if its from Fabien. It is your apparent double sta...

Re: Fabien's open letter to the community

Well, it looks like I am going to have to delete Rybka 3 and Rybka 4 from my computer. I am not being facetious either.

Re: Houdini is getting some wider press. Congratulations!

The New York Times's Gambit Blog has also mentioned TCEC: http://gambit.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/01/11/the-new-computer-chess-bully-on-the-screen/ . This gives everyone an opportunity to send the NY Times a moral assay on engine origins or a technical review showing how some of them are ´clones´. Tak...
