Re: How to get the "usual" Multi PV with MCTS engines?

I want already to rewrite the basis of the opening theory using Lc0, being an 1700 Elo player :lol:. Now, a bit more seriously, I am confident that late nets of the T30 and T40 runs are VERY strong in the openings (provably MUCH stronger than any standard AB engine). So, I let Lc0 21.2rc1 with a go...

Re: Komodo CEGT 40/20 and 'Strength'

Hopefully I am not barking up a dead tree or wasting anyone's time....this is mostly asked of Team Komodo, Team CEGT...or anyone who really has something to say. I am going to hope my formatting stays true for this cut/paste. These are the Komodo versions since 9 for the CEGT 40/20 just released. I...

Re: Komodo 13 released

Is the komodo team working on an Android version of komodo 13? I would be interested in the Monte Carlo version. I find the smartphone an extremely comfortable object for analyzing games while I'm out Yes, we still plan an Android release. MCTS is a bit of a challenge due to larger memory requireme...

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...
