Re: Rybka ban thoughts

I find it strange that your post doesn't contain the word "code" even once. I do want to make it clear that I do not absolve Vas completely. However, I think what has been done to him is disgraceful. I respect most of your opinions, but not this one. This is clearly over the top. Vas knew what he w...

Read the report, Vas copied code to increase Rybka's elo.

I see the claim Vas only took code because he was Lazy, not to help Rybka's Elo. Vas only stole code that any program needed just to save time, it had nothing to do with Rybka's elo rating. "Vasik did some copying which was wrong and he had been 'stoned' and so all's over for the copying that added ...

Re: Chess Boxing ?

It wins my first price for stupidity followed closely by Chess 960.... Dr.D Why do you think chess 960 is stupid? Richard I read from a Grandmaster commenting on Chess 960. Why he did not like Chess 960. The Grandmaster said that some Chess 960 positions are lost for black from the starting positio...

Re: Critter 1.2 SSE42 running for the IPON

Thanks Ingo...let's see if your prognosis will hold it's ground :wink: I've always believed that Richard would eventually make Critter the top engine. Fingers crossed! :P Testing is not going well for Critter 1.2. Showing no elo gain at this time. I have many more games to test Critter 1.2, but rig...

Re: AMD C30 1.2MHZ

Hi, correct I should have said ghz, my bad. Help me out on this point. Is not the architecture of a netbook cpu such as the AMD 30 1.2ghz at a much lower level than a PC version cpu architecture?! In other words, it might only be playing at Master level as opposed to GM level. Perhaps, Bob would kn...

Re: Horrendous evaluation by Fire 1.4 Xtreme. Test Position

Nice observation. You're correct. Every other engine that I test with that position does not like 33... f3, other than Houdini. Is it possible f3 is not as strong as Houdini thinks it is? In an one-game, unofficial test, Houdini against itself in that position, in a 5 0 blitz game, drew as White, a...

Re: AMD C30 1.2MHZ

Hello group, I purchased a netbook today with the AMD C30 1.2MHZ. I think this will be the last CPU weak enough for humans to still have a chance to win, yet allow all the features I want, i.e. Opening Book, TBs, UCI engines galore! The downside of tablets and cell phones is their inherent limitati...

I think it is better we wait a little until the bugs are fixed.
The engine is crashing every time with error exception message.
I am testing Fire 1.4 x64p. I have no problems testing the program so far.

After 9 games Fire 1.4 is on top of Houdini 1.5a playing at TC = 60/5 +3 =4 -2

Re: Test position: Nakamura versus Ponomariov

In this position: [d]4rbk1/1b1q1p1p/1r4p1/p1ppP3/P1p2N2/2P1B2Q/1P1R1PPP/R5K1 b - - 5 24 Ponomariov chose 24...Qxh3, which engines like initially, too. However, the game ended in a draw. Houdini 1.5, given a minute and a half to think with two threads, prefers Qd8. After following the line a bit it ...
