Re: You can run your engine on lichess.org now

Re: KDE wallpaper in Linux

Unfortunately, the position is illegal because the other side had just promoted his pawn, while his K is on check. Either that, or the starting board was setup incorrectly with h1 being black instead of a white square. I think the latter is the more likely. It's, unfortunately, not uncommon for mov...

Re: Someone lit a fire under the Stockfish team

Redone, with a fix for temporary loss of mobility Did this ever get tested via Fishtest? I'm curious how it did/will do, as while it also helped my engine solve the mate-in-5 posted earlier, it did worse in a 1000-game match vs Nemeton than without the change. Rather unfortunate, since it's nice no...

Re: Bugs in Arena 3.5.1

I have used Arena 3.5.1 a lot and have never had those issues. The only big issue I ever see is it crashes frequently and restarts during a tournament, but it restarts right where it left off. Are you sure it's crashing? The default setting is to restart Arena after every 20 games. You can change t...

Re: Kramnik Brilliancy

7. -Rg8 is "surprise, surprise" SF choice: Kramnik, from the press conference: "A couple of years ago, I found this very strong resource ...Rg8." [...] "Computer doesn't show it at the beginning, but once you put it, OK, he starts to like it a lot." So, maybe the older engines didn't suggest it? Ei...

It doesn't like C for knights, instead expecting N. Likewise for the bishops, A should be B.

Re: 3 million games for training neural networks

Likewise, I plan to use them for tuning. Thank you, Alvaro! To everyone downloading these, don't forget to prune the time forfeits if you're using the result. Either that, or go through them by hand and decide what the results should have been. That might not be too daunting as there are only 8 of t...

Re: SALC V5 openings and books launched
