Re: Komodo 13.01 MCTS - chess960 results and site updated

I notice that the top FRC ratings are more than 200 elo above the standard 40/4 ratings, whereas the engines at the bottom are much lower on FRC. Presumably this is due to a substantially lower draw rate in FRC; if that's the case, this is a strong "selling point" for FRC, which is important now th...

Re: Komodo 13 released

Mark If you means does an MCTS MultiPV search had varying quantity or tree and quality of search, yes it does. But those searches are based on win probabilities, and so should be searched less deeply or widely. I think when people use MultiPV they want to know what are the good lines and are less c...

Re: Komodo 13.01 x64 @ CEGT 40/4 + ...

btw. why the first release of Komodo 13 is named 13.01? Just curious We gave Komodo 13 to ChessBase by a contractual date, but found and fixed a minor bug a couple days later. To avoid confusion we called the fixed version (which we released) 13.01. I'm not sure whether ChessBase will have 13.01 in...

Re: Komodo 13.01 MCTS - chess960 results and site updated

http://ccrl.chessdom.com/ccrl/404FRC/index.html No comparison to 12.3 because that was never run for this list. But it looks pretty much as expected. I notice that the top FRC ratings are more than 200 elo above the standard 40/4 ratings, whereas the engines at the bottom are much lower on FRC. Pre...

Yes, a result above Fire 7.1 means that Komodo MCTS has succeeded in passing all cpu engines other than Stockfish, Houdini, and regular Komodo, which...

Re: Komodo 13 released

Where do I set MultiPV under the Shredder GUI? It seems that you can't set MutiPV under the Shredder GUI (it hides the setting in engine options, and doesn't allow to set it directly; I had to make my own compile of McCain that calls it "MultiPW" just to fix this.) The best you can do is using the ...

Re: Komodo 13.01 x64 @ CEGT 40/4 + ...

Much better than predicted for Normal Komodo, but that's probably because the 12.3 rating was lower than a couple other versions presumably due to bad luck. Just one elo below prediction for MCTS, I guess no excuse is needed for that!

Re: Komodo 13 released

<snip> While the default mode is still the strongest one for engine vs engine play, the MCTS mode is now stronger whenever MultiPV is set to 2 or more. Since most people use MultiPV for analysis and since the MCTS mode tends to produce more "human" moves because it does not assume that the opponent...
