Re: Best tablebase algorithms for 6-men server?

The server is for statistical research in chess. Do I need a license? Where to ask for a license?

Re: Best tablebase algorithms for 6-men server?

I understand Gaviota allows only up to 5-men DTM, but I want 6-men. If I can't find a reliable tablebase technology, I may also run a chess engine like how you describe in the link. I've started a thread on asmfish github page on possible gaviota egtb implementation, so evaluation show mate in x ins...

Re: Best tablebase algorithms for 6-men server?

Sorry for the late response, it was Easter! Does Nalimov tablebase requires a license for probing? Syzygy is out of question because I want DTM not DTZ. What about Scorpio? Can we do 6-men DTM there? ~1000GB shouldn't be a problem for a server. I want to setup a 6-men server for tablebase queries. T...

Best tablebase algorithms for 6-men server?

I want to setup a 6-men server for tablebase queries. This has nothing to do with chess engine, it's just be a server. I want to get WDL and distance-to-mate information for each position I query. What's the best tablebase scheme? I believe https://syzygy-tables.info uses the Gaviota for DTM. Do we ...

Re: Stockfish archive

Very hard to change the game in a mobile device. Connect your iPhone to iTunes, copy the game from the Documents folder. Use your computer to do the changes then copy the new file back.

Re: If machines can beat us at games, does it make them more

Isn't it bizarre that the article claims their computer searched for a week and it didn't reach a depth of 20 ply on that problem? To me that sounds like something you'd expect from a computer from the 60's. Any computer today should have no problem reaching 20 ply in seconds. A recent dev version ...
