Thanks for your interest in testing Scorpio.
I have added a Wb2Uci support for windows in the package now. All you have to do is use scorpio-uci.bat instead of scorpio.bat. Tested this under Arena and a CPU machine and it works. The configs are straightforward as shown in the Wb2Uci files in the package.
I recommend the following steps for installation:
1) Download install.bat
, and move it to a directory you want scorpio installed.
2) Run it from the command line (preferable) or double-click it and it will download, install and configure scorpio.ini. This will generate a scorpio folder with the current date (Scorpio-mm-yyyy). During installation, it will make two test runs with "delay 0" and "delay 1" in the end. See which one gets the higher pps value for you, default is delay 0 but delay 1 could be sometimes better when you have few cores. Change the value in bin/Windows/scorpio.ini if delay=1 happens to be better.
3) Install scorpio-uci.bat in Arena or other GUI
For RTX GPUs I recommend you use INT8 instead, which will give a 2.5x speedup bump. Once you make sure the installation is working do the following steps to get INT8 working
4) Go to bin/Windows directory from the command line and run the following
Code: Select all
scorpio.bat runinpnn calibrate.epd calibrate.dat quit
This will do INT8 calibration and generate a calibration file about 1.4G in size
5) Then run
The first time you run it, it might take upto 2 minutes to load the NN so be patient. The next runs will only take a couple of seconds
to load the neural network. If everything works out, you should see an increase of 2.5x speedup or more. The values that matter is the pps/nneps
not the nps value.
I am happy to help if you have issues with it, been doing that for everyone who ever tested it infact, so post here or PM me
