Allie is very attractive

Post by Eduard » Thu Sep 19, 2019 10:04 pm

Have Allie 0.5-dev installed. I notice that Allie uses only one CPU core. Is that normal?

Allie is very attractive. A few weeks ago I played with the MZfish on the PlayChess server against Allie. Both engines had to
continue after a few moves without book moves. Allie played the MZfish (Stockfish) positionally on the wall! Only because of (Allie-Zeitnot) time trouble could MZfish (running on a Core Duo) saved to draw.



Funny Position:

Legolas,A - SolistaChess,M 1/2-1/2, Wertungspartie, 5 min 2019

The original lc0 and Komodo 13 also play Ke2 here. As does Stoofvlees.

Doesn't seem hard to find.

Yes, Ke2! :P
I see no way to change Allie's thread usage. But testing with it shows it is maxing out the GPU. So it seems it only needs 1 CPU core to run correctly.
It also seems to use the NN better then Lc0. But I will know more as I test it further.
