Re: AdaChess v.30 released

Care to share how you managed to fix it, in layman's terms? (I know next to nothing about Ada). The problem itself is still a bit unclear to me: I used the Yield function from the standard library to sleep a thread. Why the thread was still awake? I need to look further to answer this question in d...

Re: AdaChess v.30 released

Someone wrote me that AdaChess was not downloadable, I believe due to a bug into the download manager behind my site.
AdaChess is again available for download.

Re: AdaChess v.30 released

1900 Elo? That would be a huge jump! BTW, I can confirm Gabor's observations re: extra-core usage. On this 12-core Xeon the new version does take up two cores: the CPU usage is reported as 17% by Task Manager, whereas it should be 8%. Only recently I introduced the 2017 version to the 40/4 list and...

Do 4 tournaments + one clock thread not occupy 5 cores?
No :)

Re: AdaChess v.30 released

So that seems to be the point: the clock on a separated thread is demanded to a different core. This is something that I don't control from the engine. Sorry. Anyway, I don't totally understandy why the clock prevents you to play 4 tournaments... Is just a thread. Can I help you in some way by updat...

Re: AdaChess v.30 released

Alessandro, I am very happy with this release and will test it as soon as I have free resources. It's a pleasant surprise and I'm looking forward to further versions. EDIT: A problem: I see AdaChess uses as many cores as it can. However, I'd like to set the cores to 1. How do I do that? That's a bi...

AdaChess v.30 released

Hi everyone! I have released the 3rd version of AdaChess, the (cool) chess engine written in the Ada programming language. Note that the engine support only the winboard protocol. This release should be around 1900 ELO - maybe a bit more. AdaChess is - as always - released under the GPL license and ...
