Only +150 Elo (Halogen 8.1 test) ?

My test for Halogen 8.1-x64-pext-avx2 in halfway !

The result of my test for the previous version was:

It seems that the gain between versions was much over 300 Elo points ! Magic !

Halogen 8.1 has for sure over 3100 Elo points. Let's wait for the final result. Hard days for Rhetoric 1.4.3 x64.

Only the begining :) This was committed _after_ 8.1's release :)

Hello Andrew. Great work. Why do you let go of Ethereal chess engine and develop Halogen chess engine. Is the development potential of Halogen is higher than Ethereal?

I'm not working on Halogen. I'm just testing changes to my training code, by building networks for Halogen. I could just as easily be training updated Ethereal networks, networks for another engine, etc. Sorry to Kieren, but I don't think Halogen will be passing Ethereal anytime soon.
