Toga II 3.0 released

Post by jd1 » Fri Mar 22, 2013 11:26 pm

Hi everyone!

This is this new release of Toga II 3.0, thanks to Jim Ablett for the compilation.

http://www.computerchess.info/tdbb/phpB ... hp?id=1402

Features:
- scores 64% against previous Toga versions at various time controls, so should be a decent strength improvement.
- Multi-PV fixed

For more details see readme.txt where a full list of changes may be found.

Hope you enjoy using Toga :)

Jerry

Thank you! However this strength increase wouldn't have happened without all the helpful people here, particularly in the Programming forum ...

To clarify: it scored +100 elo (64%) against Toga II 2.02 in 6000 games, 2000 at 10' + 0.1" and 4000 at 1 min + 0.1 s / move. It also defeated Toga Returns 1.1 and Toga 1.4.1 SE by similar margins.

Sorry, my mistake. But I see there are only 32 bit executables included.

I bet 32-bit is just as fast, if not faster for Toga. That's because it's based on Fruit, which doesn't use bitboards.
Theory and practice sometimes clash. And when that happens, theory loses. Every single time.

That's really impressive. Congratulations! I know that it's hard to gain 100 elo at this level. It's possible that the results are a little inflated by self-play, but still, even if it's only 80 elo in rating list conditions, it's a huge step forward :D
