Re: Stockfish eval output

Yeah, guess I was just hoping for it to have a line in the table. Still a nice display nonetheless. On the topic of static evals, is there a way/program to run through a PGN to get the evaluations of the positions along the way without the engine doing any search? I came close by setting Fritz 15 to...

Re: On-line engine blitz tourney August

Congrats everyone! At least got to watch some games, and found it to be a fun little tourney with a good mix of engines.

Question: What do the +/-s in front of the names indicate? They don't seem to correlate with the performance vs rating.

Re: On-line engine blitz tourney August

That's OK. I did login as a guest for a while and even joined a tourney that seemed to be yours, but I couldn't see anything happening, so figured I wasn't really in (that you had to be registered to participate).

Stockfish eval output

In the following technically drawn ending, it's no surprise Stockfish recognizes the situation without need of a search or EGT. The static eval gives white a symbolic edge of 0.08. Unfortunately, the pretty output doesn't show what it's using to offset the material difference, even if that's just a ...

How does this work? Any rating restrictions? Is there a way to watch?

Re: transposition table pseudocode

Nice to read that. So was the bug related to transposition table handling or not? You seemed to have excluded that it wasn't. Yes, related. It's a bit embarrassing, but here goes... At some point, I decided it was clever to use the fact a move was the only one available to save its eval before the ...

Re: transposition table pseudocode

Thank you all for your validations and suggestions. It helped me to stop focusing on these parts and find the silly bug in code not shown here. Hopefully the initial pseudocode, with the followup correction and your tweaks, will serve as a good starting place for the next intrepid chess programmer a...
