Re: Ethereal's 66.64% and RubiChess's 64.42% with Stockfish 12

Probably not missing anything. Simtests are sometimes a good metric to say something might be up, sometimes not. A while back I pushed a patch which started pruning root nodes at depth 1. As a result, Ethereal's similarity tanked from 60%+ to ~30%. Not because Ethereal changed greatly, but because t...

No Andrew, I can see your confusion. It's an easy mistake to make. One of the versions is version 'A' and the other is version 'B'.
In your interpretation of copyright law, do you believe the name change from "A" to "B" is a copyrightable work? If not, someone is getting sued big time. Big time.

Komodo will be playing. Right now they are just doing testing, which comes in little batches.

Serious cloning issue at TCEC

I've just tuned into the latest TCEC event and I'm absolutely disgusted, disturbed, and downright offended to see what they are doing. They are playing blatant clones of the same engine against each other.

Re: Why I stood up for Allie is why I stand up for FF2

I’ll make sure to ask my chess playing, non programmer friends That's a great way to suspend the discussion while sounding credible I'll give you that. It’s irony. I presumed so but gave you the benefit of the doubt. Looks like you indeed are unable to verify and acknowledge arguments coming from o...

Re: Why I stood up for Allie is why I stand up for FF2

When you show respect, it never lessens your position. In fact, it always strengthens it. On the other hand, when you are disrespectful, it is a demonstration that you cannot imagine a suitable yet civil argument. Have some respect to this forum and delete this thread. Agreed. This thread is nothin...

Hey dkappe, now that I've answered your stupid question apropos of nothing ... Big yes or no question of the day for you: Is Houdini a Stockfish fork/clone/derivative? Yes or No.
No idea.

Re: Why I stood up for Allie is why I stand up for FF2

Yes? So? Are The White Rose, Night Nurse, Dark Horse or Toga net all blatant clones of Stockfish? How come they don’t play like one another or SF?
