Re: Banksia GUI released

Just updated to Windows 10 Pro version 2004 , OS Build 19041.450btoday and Banksia GUI will not start - it opens and then collapses in a split second. Short video of screen - tried with two different versions, including the latest https://www.dropbox.com/s/zrec07p6v53sug2/Media1.mp4?dl=0 Update - c...

Re: c-chess-cli

The xboard protocol is also an evolving protocol whereas the UCI protocol is stable dead. No evidence for your claim, isn’t it? ;) Winboard protocol has stopped at version 2, no more evolved since. The UCI protocol was invented after Winboard ver 2, learnt and could replace Winboard, thus it is goo...

Re: c-chess-cli

PS: The Java version of OliThink uses an extra thread, because I didn't find a method to peek if there has been an input. It should be possible though with an library like Apache Commons and PeekableInputStream. So you can run your chess engine without any extra thread because of your program techn...

Re: c-chess-cli

Xboard is a nightmare. UCI has flaws, but at least its clear. Not in my opinion. With xboard you don't need an extra thread. The commands integrate very well in the search. ... Interesting! Do you know why xboard engines can run without extra thread but not UCI ones? Because of “ping” command or so...

Re: "New" Engines (lc0, MCTS, SFNNUE) and suitable GUIs

Hi phhnguyen, I have been trying the banksia gui out and am quite impressed with the features and functions available. I usually use HCE or Fritz interfaces but I am considering using Banksia more regularly. I haven’t managed to find a search facility in the pgn database access and I wonder if that...

Re: "New" Engines (lc0, MCTS, SFNNUE) and suitable GUIs

I am struggling with finding a suitable GUI for the new engines like lc0, KomodoMCTS and StockfishNNUE. Nibbler is great for lc0 but lacks the "usual" features of GUIs like Trees (Aquarium) or Databases (Fritz). On the other hand I cannot get any WDL or other extra info in Aquarium and Fritz. Ideal...

Re: Fun fact: SF NN net beats syzygy files easily!

I have checked how NNUE and Syzygy work. I used two engines to analyze some positions from Endgames.epd. Below is the screen. Stockfish Classic has over 76 K tbhits, Stockfish NNUE has zero tbhits but about 75.0% (750) NNUE evaluation hits. Look like both engines work well as we want. https://i.imgu...

Re: Fun fact: SF NN net beats syzygy files easily!

I have just done a very quick test and it confirms your test result: NNUE without Syzygy vs SF clasic with Syzygy 5-men, 200 games 40/20+1, using Endgames.epd from SF repo as openings, each FEN was played twice with side changed. The result as below: # name games wins draws losses score% los% elo+/-...
