Re: (just for fun) Crafty 25.0 JA UCI

Don't double-click on anything. Just install 'crafty-25-32-uci-ja.exe' as uci engine in your favourite Chess gui. It won't work from command line. Thanks, Jim, indeed that works ! Question : How do you indicate the Nalimov path? I modified crafty.rc for that, and indeed I got hits (blinking) on my ...

Re: Surprise result 16 cores from CSS forum

.......AMD is garbage. Komodo is 100 percent developed with Intel CPUs. I don't think that statement is fair on two fronts, firstly because it is a big putdown to those using AMD and secondly because engine authors should realise that many engine users will use AMD architecture, just as some have m...

Re: Crafty 25.0 64-bit v Arasan 18.2 64-bit Match

Interesting.

Looks like Livius won't let me connect to two different tournaments on the same port. Once I logged out of my local games, I got into yours just fine.

Re: 8 engine, 8CPU, octo roundrobin 40/40 tournament

K defended a very tough game against SF-Lazy. I went to bed thinking SF was going to win and I woke up surprised to see a draw. I haven't had much time to go through the game, but I didn't see any game 22 style catastrophes. [pgn] [Event "Top 8 Round Robin 2015"] [Site "ChessGUI"] [Date "2015.12.25"...

Re: 8 engine, 8CPU, octo roundrobin 40/40 tournament

88% done and K 9.3 continues to maintain a 2 point lead over the Stockfishes. No real separation between SF-YBW and SF-Lazy.

The next version of this will start around January. I would like to add some contempt to Stockfish, as I feel that should help it some against some of the other engines.
