Re: MadChess 3.0 Beta

Hi Erik,

I hope you continue your efforts on MadChess 3.0 : I'm working hard on a next version for Orion. It's hard to find time, but I have made some progress. Looking forward for good news from your side ! MadChess is one on my favorite engine/partner : go go go :)

Re: MadChess 3.0 Beta

Thanks David. Your Orion engine is one of MadChess' frequent sparring partners. You're brave to spar against iCE- that's an extremely strong engine. I assume Orion plays against an earlier, weaker version of iCE? Yes, for sure ! My objective was to reach the level of iCE v0.3. It will be harder to ...

Re: A genetic chess engine?

Hello, I'm having this idea about a chess engine that learns from genetic algorithms. Basically, every generation plays itself and we select the winner for the next generation. Has this been done before? Would it work? Any ideas? iCE is a good and successfull example. If I recall correctly, it uses...
