Re: Komodo 13 released

Congratulations for Komodo 13! Do you think the MCTS version can finally give knight odd to an FM with convincing results? It would be great to see him in action in another odd match :D Assuming you are talking about long (45' + 15") games, I rather doubt it. Our record against the last two FMs at ...

Re: Komodo 13.01 MCTS - chess960 results and site updated

Yes FRC is the prime candidate. The 50 positions was from the Rybka forum more than 10 years ago: "Stefan Pohl has created a set of 50 shuffle chess positions, which can be used as an opening database for testing. There are NO castlings possible, and the set does NOT contain any Chess960 positions....

Re: Komodo 13 released

Chessbase release bullshit updates every time.... so no need for any of them…. thank you very much. :) :) I don't know about Chessbase updates in general, but any updates they do for Komodo are ones that we give them because we are releasing them to our customers, so they are legit. But the contrac...

Re: Komodo 13 released

I have a question. If I purchase chessbase Komodo 12 (or latest chessbase version) then can I get the newest version of the engine? Basically I want the newest Komodo with the latest chessbase GUI. Then just wait a few days until Komodo 13 goes on sale on the chessbase website. They haven't announc...

Re: Komodo 13 released

~snip~ The scores reported by an MCTS engine like Komodo MCTS already reflect the possiblility of the opponent going wrong in plausible ways. Maybe it doesn't do it the same way you would, but at least to a significant degree it does what you want. That's really interesting. If this is possible wit...

Re: Komodo 13.01 MCTS - chess960 results and site updated

The ratings are expanded even further if you run Ordo against the database instead of bayeselo. A pity more engines don't support chess960. I have heard about shuffle chess but haven't researched that yet. Stefan Pohl at one point produced a pgn of 50 opening positions with no castling that any eng...
