Re: Basic automated testing

I'd recommend OpenBench . Interesting, what does this OpenBench do exactly? It seems like a wrapper on top of cutechess-cli with some client-server functionality. If it allows me say to test on say two quads at the same time + gather the results then this would cut my testing time in half, which so...

Re: Chess.com 2018 computer chess championship

I find DrCliche attitude absolutely appalling. You may find me suspicious, but I think we might have here a strange case of Dr Cliche and Mr Grant... Strange case of two competent people in the same room I would be not surprised if you are talking here about a physical room What (if anything) can I...

Re: Chess.com 2018 computer chess championship

Thanks. I don't understand the choice to enable pondering. The server has 48 physical cores. Each engine will run 46 threads. So with pondering on, 92 threads will be running on only 48 physical cores. Seems like a bad idea to me. It's called 'hyperthreading' Louis, an Intel technology...each physi...

Milos is probably talking about the cost of building a system himself. I don't have those skills or knowledge.
If your footer actually means you have a PhD, then you are smart enough to watch a youtube video and build your own system.

Theres very few things to screw up when building.

Not really.
I heard this second hand, so it seems I am wrong.

Maybe there is an even newer Fizbo, I don't know.

Sorry for the inaccuracy.

Re: Chess.com 2018 computer chess championship

They need to implement tablebase adjudication for this tournament to cut down o the number of times we end up watching engines messing about for 100+ moves of pointless crap. It works perfectly fine for TCEC. I don't see why CCCC couldn't do it as well. At least 6 man if not 7 man adjudication. It ...

Re: cutechess cli and ponder

Its not an engine option, its just a general flag. Just add either "ponder" or "-ponder" to the end of the command string, and remove the "option.ponder"
