Re: Komodo 13 released

Thanks very much for the latest update! I've also been reading over the 7 piece EGTB updates you have supported but it will be a while till I download many of these. I upgrades to a 256 Gb USB drive recently which was enough to download all the 6 men Syzgy files but now this? :D Oh welll... Anyway ...

Thanks Larry.

Where do I set MultiPV under the Shredder GUI?
In the Deep Shredder GUI (I think they are all alike), f6 makes it analyze more lines and f5 less lines. If you right click over the game analysis/PV information, it gives a menu of options.

Re: Komodo 13 released

Guys, just a quick question: Does Komodo MCTS make any use of Hash option or it only uses MCTS Hash option? I want to increase MCTS Hash value but then I have to decrease Hash value. So I wonder if decreasing normal Hash has any impact on analysis. Both Hash tables are used. Hash is used by the sho...

Re: Komodo 13 released

Hello Larry, I just downloaded both version 64 and 32. Win 64 seems to work fine on my machine, but Win 32 has an issue in my older laptop running windows 7. The engine does not seem to start or show any analysis in both GUIs I loaded it in (SCID and Deep Shredder 13). Maybe someone else has this i...

Re: Best age for chess programming?

In Komodo team Larry is 70+ and Mark 60+ I think :!: :) . But probably same as here: It is a general truism in mathematics that mathematicians do their best work in their 20s and 30s. I will be 60 in June. Granted, I am beginning to look more like a mad scientist, and they are always hard to age! :...

Re: Syzygy 7 piece GUI support

What is there to support? Adjudication? I consider that evil anyway. Engines that do not support EGT should not get free (half)points just because a difficult win or difficult-to-hold draw in theory are what they are with perfect play. And engines that do support EGT should be able to move instantl...

Syzygy 7 piece GUI support

Do any of the chess GUIs now support 7 piece Syzygy? I know engines like Stockfish and Komodo do, but what about the GUI itself?

Re: Komodo 12.3 is out

Hi Larry, why MCTS search in Komodo is non-determinicstic despite using 1 thread only? I see some randomness during the search. Each run gives slightly different output. For example Leela's search is deterministic on single thread. Here is Komodo 12.3 on 1 CPU in starting position: First run: 0.02:...

Re: Komodo 12.3 is out

Also please note that although 12.3 MCTS is still nearly a hundred elo below normal 12.3, it can already defeat 12.3 if both are in MultiPV = 2 (or more) mode. For this reason, I have switched to using the MCTS version myself when analyzing games or opening s. "Version 12.3 will probably be the las...

Re: Komodo 12.3 is out

Larry or Mark, I'm getting an error when trying to download 12.3. I purchased 12.2.2 so I'm eligible. My Account is, indeed, showing me the 12.3 folder. But when I click on download 12.3, I get this: Not Found The requested URL /play/komodo-12.3-ee4a9c9a.zip was not found on this server. Apache/2.4...
