Re: Help for Syzygy probe?

However, the Fathom code failed to find anything. What do you mean by "failed to find anything"? If it returns a draw, there might be a bug in the Fathom code. If it returns something like a "probe failed" result, then some table seems to be missing or a path seems to be wrong. (Or it still is a bu...

Re: Human vs Engine Top Crazyhouse match !

I was following the match. It was not a fair match, because Justin was talking throughout the match. You need a match where he just plays.

Help for Syzygy probe?

My FEN string is: "4k3/3bb3/4b3/8/5p2/8/8/4K3 w - - 0 1". This is clear lost for White. https://www.dropbox.com/s/hos7vld34495nen/ABCD.png?dl=0 In my session, I had KBBBPvK.rtbw and KBBBPvK.rtbz in the path. The Python package (chess.syzygy) was able to probe it (-2 is the result). However, the Fath...

Re: A database for learning evaluation functions

I'm indeed doing something like that. I prefer all three: 1. Get high-quality games from CCRL 2. Get low-quality games from FICS 3. Randomly generate It's assumed that the network will be able to learn from high quality positions while not biased away from very common club-level positions. Randomly ...

Re: DeepChess? Another deep-learning based chess program

I've read the paper, but I don't quite understand: Q1: How does the binary output representation create the evaluation function? In Giraffe, the weights for the evaluation are the parameters, but I don't see anything like that mentioned in the paper. Q2: What's the new alpha-beta algorithm? It looks...

Re: Perfromance diff between legal / illegal move generator

Most moves aren't used in chess engine because they are pruned. Pseudo-legal is important, and you'll need it sooner or later. However, there're probably other things more worth for your time. Your don't have an engine until you have at least alpha-beta implemented...

Re: Rebel to be reacquired by Ed

iOS does not allow one process to launch another process. So it is impossible for a GUI to fire up an engine. Both the GUI and the engine would have to be the same executable. And if you want to play engine A against engine B then A, B and the GUI would all have to be in a single executable. That m...
