Tell you what though, if you think it's so easy to improve Stockfish, why don't you prove it?
You need to change the way programmers think. Too many programmers fell into the so-called programming experience - and this is not good.
Says you, who obviously has no clue.

I have a notion of what I write, because in this respect nothing has changed.

You only need to rent amazon ec2 instances and donate them to Stockfish framework.
For example if the Stockfish framework needs 100 cores + 3 years for 100 ELO.
You should change it into much more cores and much less time for 100 ELO.

If everybody here would rent and donate at least 1 machine, then Stockfish would reach +100 ELO after 6 months.

It worked! Thanks to all people who suggested this magic Ctrl + F5. I'll try it again tomorrow to check if there's a SF 10 release! :lol:

Seriously, my best congrats to Marco and the whole team. Their work is great. :D

Perhaps yes, maybe no, I do not know.

no chess program was born totally from one mind. all chess programs have many ideas from many minds.

Hi Evert,

Clearly elo++ is only going to increment by 1. You need to add a for loop e.g.

Code: Select all

for&#40;i = 0; i < desired_improvement; i++) elo++;
That should do the trick :lol:
