Positional / Material only engines

Post by JohnWoe » Tue Jun 04, 2019 10:46 pm

Since Sapeli has different variables for material and positional scores. I decided to test how would Sapeli do w/ just material / positional stuff.

Comment these lines off if you want to test these. If these are useful to some I can make UCI options for them.
Material only: https://github.com/SamuraiDangyo/Sapeli ... li.c#L2373
Positional only: https://github.com/SamuraiDangyo/Sapeli ... li.c#L2371

tc = 40/1

Positional only:
Score of Sapeli 1.17 vs Fairy-Max 5.0b: 7 - 90 - 3 [0.085] 100
Elo difference: -412.80 +/- 133.12
Finished match

Material only:
Score of Sapeli 1.17 vs Fairy-Max 5.0b: 20 - 63 - 17 [0.285] 100
Elo difference: -159.78 +/- 68.36
Finished match

Full:
Score of Sapeli 1.17 vs Fairy-Max 5.0b: 77 - 7 - 16 [0.850] 100

Material only Sapeli. Sapeli starts with a4! Truly horrible game...
