Re: Release of Ethereal7.78

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

Thanks, as always!

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?

If that works, then I'll go through and fix .75, .76.

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

That happens when the evaluation is re-written, as well as the search :)

Things have changed a lot since 6.26, which I believe you made the initial post about!

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.

Re: Time controls for testing when changing evaluation weigh

What i mean is this:

Using 1+.01s time control will not be useful when you make a change regarding null pruning above depth 12. Or any other search features that are not triggered due to low time = low depth. That is a case I would say does NOT cut it

Time controls for testing when changing evaluation weights

It seems to me that I should be able to test evaluation weight (changed values of PSQT, changed values of outposts... ect) with incredibly low time controls. Something like 1+.01s. This will be my first time playing around with just evaluation weights, so I've never done this testing before. Is ther...
