Hi Graham !

Hmmmm, i believe something goes wrong in your tournament. Herrmann is one of the strongest engine here, no question, and will benefit of no blitz tc's like Homer.
So, i suggest you should check the setting files and global enviroment of the engines. :roll:

Best,
Daniel

I see almost no difference between blitz and long time control rating lists
and hermann is another example when most of the games are not from this tournament:

blitz rating of hermann

http://computerchess.org.uk/ccrl/404.li ... t_all.html
68 Hermann 2.0 2483 +20 −20 38.3% +92.9 21.1% 1017

long time control rating of hermann:

http://computerchess.org.uk/ccrl/4040.l ... t_all.html
Hermann 2.0 2493 +34 −35 42.8% +50.7 27.4% 292

Hermann 1.9 is rated 2344 Elo in my rating list while Hermann 2.0 Leiden MP is rated 2381 Elo after playing nearly 200 games at long time controls....

Thanks Graham!
Nice to see that the final Homer version played not bad so far. i call it "final" version because the development of Homer is finished.

Best,
Daniel

That's disappointing to hear Daniel. I hope that you get the motivation to resume work on Homer at some stage.
Congratulations on the fine performance in this tournament regardless. :)
