Re: Stripping a pgn

Anyone knowing of a trick to strip the pgn to just the moves played for both sides? Even better, if this could be done with the whole pgn file. Or, alternatively, does anyone know if there are stripped TCEC pgn files for download somewhere? Thanks, hope someone helps. Using Scid vs PC allows strip ...

Re: nice correspondence move

Very well, Robert! BTW, does anybody know, what has become of Rondo? If not under further development, maybe some free download eventually sometime? Or at least to be bought somewhere :?: I would be interested in this engine, too! Did it ever appear in public beside the two events mentioned by the ...

Re: Cfish 9 is OUT!

I have been doing a couple of compiles with both Stockfish and Cfish over the past days. I used Ubuntu 18.04 for cross-compilation of the Windows binaries. Sf9 vs Cfish9 on Windows: I got similar results as Thomas with a slight edge in favor of Stockfish On Linux: Cfish kept a clear edge when using ...

Re: SmarThink 1.98 is out

Thanks for this release. :D Will give it a go in the next days.

The Linux version identifies itself with the following uci string:

id name SmarThink 1.97
This seems like a little slip.

Just out of curiosity:
Why do you use 10 mb as the default Hash size? All other engines I know use a power of 2.

Re: OpenTal 1.0 in a linux operating system

I took the Makefile from Rodent and put it into this package.

https://www.sendspace.com/file/wybykm

Unpack the package, go to the sources subdirectory.
Install g++ with sudo apt install g++
Type make clean && make gcc-popcnt-profiled and you should have a running version.

Re: Announcing lczero

This seems like a very interesting project. I am playing some 5 minute games against it right now and it moves instantly every single time. Is this the expected behaviour? This is because the default number of playouts is set to 800, and there is no time management. You can increase the number of p...

Re: Toga II 4.0 release

It's merely a different hash size, Toga II on Windows x64 machines has a larger default hash than either on Linux or on 32-bit machines. I probably should have made them the same on second thoughts, but it's a minor issue. You can see that the hashfull is different too. Adjusting the Hash size give...
