Re: Alouette 0.0.1

Whoa, that some quick work, Roland! 100 40/2 games vs. Sapeli RND with concurrency=4 completed in 1m 8s without a single error! Bravo! Now I just need to backport this to v0.0.3 -- since v0.0.5 scores over 90% vs. a random mover v0.0.3 should still be useful. So far I figured out that the following ...

Re: Alouette 0.0.1

Good, I'm looking forward to the fix. While trying to generate some more games for the v0.0.3 entry on the blitz list I managed to unearth this: [Event "Sapeli 1.02 64-bit RND 40/4"] [Site "Dual X5670"] [Date "2019.04.29"] [Round "30"] [White "Sapeli 1.02 64-bit RND"] [Black "Alouette 0.0.3 64-bit"]...

Re: Alouette 0.0.1

Sorry, that was dumb of me to miss the significance of the .fen file. The error went away with the file placed into the same dir. I ran a short tmt vs. Sapeli RND and set up Cute Chess to abort after the first problem -- Recover crashed engines=off. Concurrency was set to one, to keep things simple....

Re: asmFish

However, the result is perplexing. After 20 games The results are not perplexing, merely meaningless. What is perplexing is that you persist in wasting time on these tests despite being told repeatedly about the small sample sizes, too-wide error margins and statistical insignificance of such tests...

Re: Alouette 0.0.1

I have made a ZIP file including a binary compiled with DEBUG option: it's alouette.exe . The other files ( alouette32.exe and alouette64.exe ) are binaries compiled with RELEASE option. The main difference is that the DEBUG version produces a log file. alouette-20190429.zip @Tirsa If you have time...

Re: Alouette 0.0.1

Roland, I tried v0.0.3 and v0.0.4 vs. Sapeli in random-mover mode. It turned out to be an exercise in frustration. Alouette stalls under Cute Chess GUI and Arena 3.5.1, and only when playing black pieces. Both v0.0.3 and v0.0.4 do, the latter perhaps somewhat less than the former. They just stop mov...

Re: Near-random movers

Thank you for the pointer, Roland. I had v1.0 already but wasn't aware that v0.3 was so suitably weak. If anyone else is interested, here's a Win64 build: iota 0.3 x64 : iota-03-tp.zip It's not a random mover; e.g. in startpos it always plays 1.Na3. In self-play from startpos it invariably produces ...
