I evidently need to comment my code better: That patch was meant for the iPhone version of Glaurung, which uses entirely different opening book code, which is not even written in the same programming language as the book code in Stockfish and Glaurung 2.x.

I see that there is already a 1.3.1 version which fixes this bug now. :)

Jean-Paul,

There is little sense posting the result of 10-game matches...

You should know better! :o

Hi Ernest,

if you do 10 games 100 times is also 1000 games!
So every time i test a new engine i see directly after a few 10 games and different test suites how good this program will be.
Rybka and Naum you see directly it comes at top..also with 10 games.
If it's a very strong engine it will not stay down in a list.
And Stockfish will gave his place i my list when he has around 200 games!

But the statistical aberration is much too high!

One example:
In 1986 a german chess computer magazine published a result of 9:1 of a chess computer match between Computer A and Computer B. You would say the winner should be clearly stronger?

But the solution was: They simply let a Mephisto Amsterdam play against itself! The side with the white pieces was alternating called "Computer A" and "Computer B".

The more games you play, the less will be the statistical aberration. Every statistician will confirm that...


best regards,
Robert

Hi Marco and Jim,

The only difference is a change in the zobrist key initialization, in particular in the zobCastle keys used to update castle information.

Could be that this change caused a bit more/less hash collisions when looking up a position in the transposition table. And this could lead to a small difference in the searched nodes.

The difference is:

Code: Select all

-  for(int i = 15; i >= 0; i--)
-      zobCastle&#91;&#40;i&8&#41; | &#40;i&1&#41; | (&#40;i&2&#41; << 1&#41; | (&#40;i&4&#41; >> 1&#41;&#93; = genrand_int64&#40;);
+  for &#40;int i = 0; i < 16; i++)
+      zobCastle&#91;i&#93; = genrand_int64&#40;);

Hi Marco,

Testing 1.3 JA I must say it's strong. But one thing: sometimes it takes
ridiculous time to start engine in Fritz 10. I just checked from clock 45s!
And before somebody asks: it's no hard disk swapping. I don't remember
this kind of delay previously with other engines.

If this behaviour is reproducible and you are interested I can send you a debug version that writes in a log file each initialization step togheter with timestamp, so that we could understund from where it comes from...

Let me know. BTW I didn't experienced this delay.

Same 45s delay with Arena. Here's log, don't know if it helps:
