If you are using my version, I turn off every form of contempt by default. You can turn it back on with the UCI options.

I turn it off because I use chess engines for analysis and rarely for game play. And when I play them, the contempt is not important anyway. And when I analyze, I want the right answer.

I can confirm that contempt does work for Polygon, when activated thru UCI options, but does not for Honey/Bluefish.
Are you saying there is a bug?

It just appears that contempt can't be activated at all, either for analysis or match play. I've tried different settings, to no avail. If you can reproduce the problem, then it may be a bug. Otherwise, it could well be ineptitude on my part. :|

Of course, a lack of working contempt leaves the engine more susceptible to drawing vs lesser opposition, and can also potentially take a bite out of its attractive playing style.

I will look at it when I have a chance. Thx for reporting it.

Thanks a lot, Mike. Honey/Honey+Blue(fish) is a superior 'fish-fork! 8-)

If you put it in the microwave, it goes right back to liquid.

No, not in the latest. I do not expect to do that one on a regular basis, but I highly recommend crystal for use in analysis. Very nice work by Joe Ellis.
