Re: Can Komodo 13. for Android beat Shredder 8 on a P.C ?

The depths in that odds game against the 2200 are not Komodo depths again, so wrong engine was playing :) On the general topic of those odds, at 15+10 those are just gigantic for a decent player against K on a phone. Even at 5+0 and 3+2 I can get wins and draws against K13 on my phone with those odd...

Re: Can Komodo 13. for Android beat Shredder 8 on a P.C ?

Now that's even weirder. Some of the moves are again quickly identified by K13 AB on my phone as giant mistakes. The depth output makes it look like the engine was being randomly switched between K13 MCTS, K13 non-MCTS, and the built-in Java engine (most of the depth outputs look like what K13 MCTS ...

Re: Can Komodo 13. for Android beat Shredder 8 on a P.C ?

Sounds good.

Just so I have some idea, what kn/s are you getting?

I get about 1200 kn/s from AB K13 when using all 8 of my phone's cores.

I'd expect yours to be substantially faster.

Cheers!

Re: Can Komodo 13. for Android beat Shredder 8 on a P.C ?

Glad to help!

That means you were indeed using Chess for Android's built-in java engine before.

Games against Shredder 8 should be more interesting now :)

Re: Can Komodo 13. for Android beat Shredder 8 on a P.C ?

Chess for Android is what I tested with to confirm that the depths in your PGN didn't line up with K13's, so Chess for Android works for me. You're definitely long pressing, going to "UCI and XBoard"->"Import engine" and selecting Komodo before playing? It should show "komodo13 :ready" in the bottom...

Re: Can Komodo 13. for Android beat Shredder 8 on a P.C ?

Ok, those depth outputs are not like anything K13 displays on Android. With the MCTS version, you'll usually see something like 7/0, 8/1, etc., while with the non-MCTS, you'll see 15/15, 16/16, etc. The depths you're showing are just way too low to be the AB K13 on a high-end Android, and they're th...

Re: Can Komodo 13. for Android beat Shredder 8 on a P.C ?

K13 on my slow Moto G6 quickly identifies several weak moves from the K13 in the first game posted in this thread. My best guess would be that you have the skill UCI option set to something other than max, but it's hard to say anything definitive with so little data. Perhaps post your settings, so w...

Re: Ethereal 12 (3400) loses to God! (Most Amazing Game I've Seen)

It seems to me both "sides" (such as there are sides) have fair points. On the one hand, as a chess player, the sacrifice of the queen is a beautiful idea and a nice try to hold the position. On the other hand, it seems clear it would have fallen short against stronger play at several points. I don'...

It may also be partly because later Leela versions play a bit less "incorrectly", i.e. unsoundly.
Nah, giving away pieces for free because you view all options as certain losses is just a pathological side-effect. It's definitely not a way of playing less incorrectly :)
