Re: Any news of a Komodo update in sight?

Sorry that was a typo - I meant 1 GB of Hash. And why did they use such a tiny amount?[/quote Since you compared it to your laptop memory it was more likely a "thinko" than a typo. How much it crippled SF I don't know but I guess someone have tested it somewhere. According to Komodo 128 MB is enoug...

Re: Any news of a Komodo update in sight?

Alpha Zero won on much more powerful hardware. Ahh..Werewolf, we meet again. So you've convinced yourself that AlphaZero won only because of superior hardware ! Awesome ! Did you even bother going through the Games ? You're living proof that one can convince oneself of ANYTHING, provided one believ...

Re: AlphaGo Zero And AlphaZero, RomiChess done better

You can chose to be logical in this analysis or you can chose illogic. This jab was not necessary nor appreciated. I simply said in my original post that it looks like they did certain things and the evidence uncovered backs that up. I don't think it does. Sorry. The published paper very clearly st...

Mr. Sherwin has a view based on his learning and his practice and I thank him for dividing us.

Re: AlphaGo Zero And AlphaZero, RomiChess done better

I did not read any white papers on A0. I only read some reports by journalist. All I was trying to do was demystify somewhat the phenomenon that is A0. Nothing else read white papers so you do it well! Thanks for it. Sorry, didn't mean anything from you, my opinion is that Mr Sherwin is talking BS....

Re: AlphaGo Zero And AlphaZero, RomiChess done better

That lead me to the conclusion that A0 pretrained for the match against SF or at a minimum loaded and learned against SF games. Some post above seem to verify that observation.

Virus in Winboard?

I downloaded Winboard for the first time in years, normally use Linux but AWG insists that Winboard.exe contains a virus. Don't remember exactly where I downloaded it but I think it was https://winboard.en.softonic.com/

Any comments please?

Crafty 25.2

Hi

I have a problem running engine-engine matches with Crafty. Tried under Arena and Winboard but the behaviour is the same, when it comes out of the book it start to search but never moves, the time will run out. Are there some parameters needed in the setup?

Thanks
