Re: Why does Lets Check" in Fritz sometimes just show "New Engine"?

Let's Check recognizes only SF, Houdini, Komodo, Shredder, Fire, Gull, Rybka and the various Fritzes. Everything else, including SF derivatives like asmFish, Brainfish and SuGaR, shows up as "New Engine". The name recognition scheme seems to be based on straightforward string comparison. So you can...

It seems that Lc0 shows up as "New Engine" in Fritz, but I don't know why.
It was like this in Fritz 15 too. Maybe Chessbase has approved engines for that function.

Hmm

Why does Lets Check" in Fritz sometimes just show "New Engine"?

Just curious. Does anyone know why sometimes the engine you are using in Fritz just say "New Engine" and other times with different engines the name does come up?

Is this a program quirk or is it something that needs to be populated in the engine itself to be read by the program?

Started testing some engines on midgames250.epd at shorter time, single thread.
Results so far, https://fsmosca.github.io/chess-tests/
Could you include SF_dev too? On my tests, it seems to have improved positionally sensibly (but on 1000 positions) over SF 10.
Nice results by Xiphos

Re: Yet another game analysis method

Hi Ferdy! How difficult would it be to add some tactical tips to Chess Artist? Examples would be: “This move would pin the Knight” That one is possible, python-chess has a method to detect pins. “Creating an isolated pawn” Possible but needs to walk the pv and see if a capture would create an isola...

Re: Yet another game analysis method

Hi Ferdy! Is this built an extension of the Nucleus analysis tool or Chess Artist ? :) I already have sf and lco combo where sf will handle the ending. It is not in Nucleus and not in Aiquiri either, not released. For chess artist, I might include this feature. Is there a Windows executable for Che...
