Re: TCEC Division 2/Arasan

TCEC Division 2 is still ongoing. Arasan is participating but was disqualified after disconnecting three times (other engines have also had disconnects but so far no one else has three). I have been following the chat but I am not participating because it apparently requires login with Facebook, an...

I really hope that's not true considering all the work, including eval tuning, I've put into creating an almost 2400-rated engine. :)

Well, even with time, level is important, since it tells you the time control, whereas time tells you how much is left.

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

I didn't have any problem with Weini using both uci (newly implemented) or xboard when I use the new bot functionality of lichess. Just that for xboard, it seems you have to implement the old "time" feature ... RookieMonster uses "time" -- didn't realize there was a newer way for the protocol to re...

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...
