Re: Komodo 13 released

Where do I set MultiPV under the Shredder GUI? It seems that you can't set MutiPV under the Shredder GUI (it hides the setting in engine options, and doesn't allow to set it directly; I had to make my own compile of McCain that calls it "MultiPW" just to fix this.) The best you can do is using the ...

Re: Komodo 13 released

I believe that both Komodo and Komodo MCTS share the same code and it is not fair to have them as seperate engines. This is a common thing for the CCRL, as Fritz 16 is +90% Rybka 4, and they have them as separate engines. it is up to each person running tournaments to decide what rules they want fo...

Re: trying to understand mcts

I do not know if MCTS will surpass alpha-beta. But in K MCTS, the Hash used during search is different from the MCTS Hash which holds the MCTS nodes. Preloading a Hash can be bad unless you have a good replacement scheme to always writ over the hash entries, otherwise the hash gets full of high dept...

Re: trying to understand mcts

Hi, As the topic says, I'm trying to understand mcts. I tried implementing it before and that did not work very well (at par with Pos :D) so my guess is that I simply have the wrong understanding of how mcts works. What I did was: - find which moves there are in the root node - pick one at random -...

Re: Komodo 13 released

What is optimal table memory settings for my system? i7-5960X 4.5GHz, 16 GB ram, M.2 SSD for 6-men. I've often used 256 MB for table memory. Opinions please. The default should be fine for Table Memory for most any game you would play. We made this an option because people doing long analysis (like...

Re: Komodo 13 released

Each MCTS tree entry is about 40 bytes, and an hour has 3600 seconds, so 1400 * 40 * 3600 is about 200 megs an hour. Sorry, Mark, but knowing this calculation already from Readme, isn't there (at Readme) one 0 missing? There's about the same example given for 8 cores and 5 hours and factor is 1000 ...

Re: Komodo 13 released

Using Aquarium GUI, after 1 minute in a typical endgame position with 6-man Syzygy installed, SF shows 45,680 kN/s and 260K TB access; Komodo shows 40,000 kN/s and 827K TB access; Komodo MCTS does not show any speed nor any TB access. Do you think that this is an Aquarium issue or perhaps Komodo MC...
