Did you fix ponder or it's still on the to-do list?
Ponder UCI option is here.
"Ponder move" is displayed but I'm still not sure how to handle ponderhit.
I see other engines going from "infinite mode" to "timed mode" and continue to search, but I don't get that.
So for now I just stop search on ponderhit and wait for another go command.

I feel silly about that.

After reading viewtopic.php?f=7&t=69279&start=50, I am even more lost.
Maybe I get it now ! next patch ;)

Minic 1.24 is out with many fixes (thanks to TCEC testing) and probably some elo, maybe +25 :D versus 1.19.

Still thanks to TCEC bug hunting session, Minic 1.26 is available :D

This release seems in fact a lot stronger than 1.19 (same as 1.24 results shown here)

Code: Select all

Rank Name                          Elo     +/-   Games   Score   Draws
   0 minic_1.24                     34      13    1910   54.8%   35.5%
   1 igel-x64_popcnt                14      21     636   52.0%   37.7%
   2 Winter_0.7                    -33      23     637   45.3%   30.0%

It won't unfortunately ! because of a late minute crash and a good games from opponent. The issue may be fixed by this new release : 1.32

I hope to see it in some bonus match like the FRC tourney.

It still might play if one of the L2 engines is too crash-prone, eg; Fritz or Chess22k

Well a lot of effort and CPU time has been involved in Minic debugging the last few days before QL from TCEC crew and other engine authors, so this is clear to me that L2 engines deserve the same good treatment at least.

You were right ! I'm in ;)

By the way 1.34 is out (little fix to avoid null move output in pv)

Minic 1.35 is out. This release has a chance to get over 3000 in the CCRL Blitz 4CPU list :D
