Where do the engines using too much time spend it? I assume they give a move in time, so not on search?

Some play too fast, some use too much time.

It's up the programmer to fix it.

Re: NICE 1.2

It works - AND I found a (possible) bug in Myrddin! It does not accept "st" command values less than 1, because the protocol says it is used to "set the exact number of seconds per move".

Re: NICE 1.2

Well I'm stumped. Either I can't make it work with Myrddin (which is an xboard engine) or NICE doesn't support xboard. Has anybody had success using NICE with any xboard engine? That is a question for Ferdy. Meanwhile I did a quick run with Myrddin using the 1500 STS positions using the wb2uci adap...

Re: NICE 1.1

set OPTIONS unfortunately doesn't work for winboard engines. You could try the wb2uci.exe adapter. Here is how I run ProDeo (winboard). set MT=100 set HASH=128 set THREADS=1 set PROTOCOL=uci set EPD=epd\sfx.epd set OPTIONS="MultiPV=1,depth=8" set MRL=ProDeo set EXE=engines\wb2uci.exe set NAME=ProDe...
