Re: Testing using many computers and architectures

So are you testing only against other versions of Crafty? Or with a pool of other engines? I'm trying to see if the following is an issue: My opponent's engine runs faster on some intel chip, but slower on some AMD chip. The solution to that problem would be to normalize CPU speeds with some benchma...

Testing using many computers and architectures

Up until now I have only had one computer running tests. Now, I have an additional computer running tests. However, the results from each computer vary greatly. I am scaling the time control based on a benchmark test run using a version of Ethereal. Note that my suite plays against a handful of engi...

Re: Release of Ethereal7.78

Would you mind providing a compile of 7.78, so that I may add it to the release?

Re: Release of Ethereal7.78

Hmm.. I can't believe I have not added NPS to the output. I guess I got used to the GUI I use doing the math for me. I will be sure to include this in the next version.

Re: Release of Ethereal7.78

Can you give this executable a shot?

Re: Release of Ethereal7.78

Two things. 1) I accidentally dropped a -march=armv5 flag from the make file 2) I am using a different compiler, now compiling from win, not Linux. I'm away from home at the moment, but when I get back I'll update the make file, and swap the Android executables in each of the zips found in /dist. I'...

Re: Release of Ethereal7.78

Release of Ethereal7.78

Hello all, It's been a good while since I've made any substantial changes. Took some time off to develop a testing framework of my own creation, and also lost out on some free time now that I'm back in University. Ethereal7.78 is about 60ELO stronger than Ethereal7.70 Ethereal7.78 is about 40ELO str...
