Re: The Baron 3.41 configuration

Although the engine works ok for me in Arena (Windows 10) and Arena (using wine in linux) on 2 different computers, I cannot get it to use my 5 man Syzygy bases. I have tried both Winboard and UCI modes with the same result, and various settings in the .ini file without success. The Arena "Engine L...

Re: The Baron 3.41 configuration

I think it should be somewhere in the GUI (not engine) options, but I don't have a recent Shredder GUI.
A workaround could be to set all you need in the baron.ini and then set ucioption to off ...

Re: The Baron 3.41 configuration

My 6-man syzygy files are in the same directory on an SSD and all 510 are correctly found by The Baron. My ini includes syzygypath F:\Sakk\syzygy szqsearch on szdepth 0 I guess that is correct. Yes How does the the expected output of The Baron look like when it searches in a 6-man position and find...

Re: The Baron 3.41 configuration

Obviously something strange is going on when UCI_ShowRefutations is set to true. For some reason it doesn't show the PV anymore, which in its turn confuses the GUI. Could you try without UCI_ShowRefutations? I'm not using it myself and may need to look at that as it is not functioning correctly. PS:...

Re: The Baron - Latest Version Released

For some reason, I couldn't get it to run UCI commands from within a console window, but it seems to run fine as a UCI engine from within Arena. In the baron.ini file, I removed the # in front of ucioption on. The uci command indeed does not work. ucioption on is the default. The main reason behind...

Does anybody know how to start it in uci mode via command line?
Unfortunately I did not implement this, despite the message in the release.txt.
I'll produce a new 64-bits version later this week then as well, correcting this omission.

I'm wondering why the author didn't just support the CECP command "memory".
I haven't touched the winboard interface in quite some time so it doesn't support the later additions to the protocol.
