Seer is an interesting engine, great to experiment and research with NNUE and its topology - thank you - it is a pleasure to browse the sources.

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=72613&start=427

Again the appeal to engine authors - please create a separate thread if introducing a new engine or important updates. The new engines 2020 thread is intended for testers. It would be interesting to see whether AMD's PEXT beats the native C PEXT implementation, most use magic bitboards as fallback, specially if people demand 32-bit binaries ;-)

I stumbled upon the Seer code on github a few weeks ago, back when Stockfish hadn't yet merged the nnue code into its engine, and from what I remember, it was a barebones engine at the time, consisting of only AB + PVS for search and NNUE for evaluation.

Good chance to learn how to build one by yourself, what is your hardware? Intel processor with BMI2 and AVX2 is suited best. AMD sucks. The bin-file is 108 MiBs, a little bit larger due to 32-bit float weights ...

Hi Gerd,

no topic is more boring as to build an executable from an unknown engine.
Other case, I am the programmer and know the own enignes more as the others.

Really a bad idea to say:
Build your own one!

As next will be follow the comment:
Build your own engine, enough puzzle parts are online.
And we can closed the engine development.

Sorry!
Complete other opinion here!

Best
Frank

+1 !
my thoughts: no .exe - no test.

I don’t know. Have a Xeon 5690 6 core intel.

Hi Werner,

right!

Thinking on it how many differents in testing such engines we produced if all the interesting users start to compile his own one or made other important changes / mistakes and so one!

No *.exe no test!
