What about being #1 on that? I'd be happy with that, but we don't currently know, and there's no standings, on what are the top engines that people use to train against. If no data exists you don't really know if Romi is the engine most people use to train, or how close it is.

Personally I'd rather train against humans and train Romi against Crazy engines to see how crazy she can play.

Romichess K (Per) came with a personality capability. I was able to get Romichess K to work as an analysis engine but not Romichess K (Per). Is it not feasible to make an analysis engine that can make use of this personality capability. BTW I'm using SCID vs PC.

Obviously the engine is extremely strong positionally, and I'll definitely use Romi M going forward, but it would be really nice to have that personality creator.

Anyway, that might be a lot of work, and I don't want you to get any more burned out than you already are.

Jim Ablett added the personality capability to K. I do not have his modified version any longer. I will see if I'm up to the task of recreating his work as it might not be too difficult but I can't promise anything. It might be interesting though if I am up to it. We'll see.
I hate if statements. Pawns demand if statements. Therefore I hate pawns.

I’ve always struggled using ab engines as sparring partners for reasons already mentioned here. I have started using Leela Chess and it’s various networks as sparring partners at low node counts — 20, 100 or 200. The result is much more useful and satisfying.
