LCZero on Arena - ChessGUI - Lucas Chess -WinBoard Interface

Post by Norbert Raimund Leisner » Fri Apr 13, 2018 12:44 pm

Hello,

I found a manual here:

https://github.com/glinscott/leela-ches ... -Chess-GUI

I tried it out with Arena etc. but every time my approaches failed -
especially the commandline-parameters are for me a mystery.

To the LeelaChess team: Can you upload the mention above interfaces in combination with LCZero (CPU-4threads, not GPU version) as "all-in-one solution" e.g. on Google Drive https://www.google.com/intl/en-GB_ALL/drive/ or anywhere else, please?

Best wishes,

Norbert

Hi, Norbert

Here is my setup for Shredder GUI using Polyglot.

1st Download the Windows binary and extract it to a location of your choosing:

https://github.com/glinscott/leela-ches ... pu-win.zip

Note: GPU version is located here https://github.com/glinscott/leela-ches ... pu-win.zip

2nd Download a working Polygot version and install it to the folder where you placed LCZero:

http://hgm.nubati.net/polyglot.exe

3rd Create Polygolt.ini file and place it in folder where you placed LCZero.

Code: Select all


EngineCommand=lczero.exe -w f024e002e5784b010a017f1e17ced56d286019b57fe54dd3f5f13aa3c997003e -t 1 
EngineDir=. 
[Engine] 
Hash=512 

PS: Make you save polyglot.ini file as "all type *.*" and not TXT

4th Download the latest Network file and place it in folder where you placed LCZero.

http://lczero.org/get_network?sha=f024e ... a3c997003e

Lastly install the polyglot.exe file in Shredder GUI as UCI engine.

To do the same in WinBoard, just got to the Load Engine dialog, browse to wherever you put lczero.exe for the engine executable, and then enter in the 'command-line parameters' field:

-w f024e002e5784b010a017f1e17ced56d286019b57fe54dd3f5f13aa3c997003e -t 1

Tick UCI, click 'OK', and you should be done.

Seems a lot simpler to load a non-native (UCI) engine in WinBoard than to load it into the supposedly user-friendly Shredder GUI, which was designed for that protocol... :wink:

That is certainly true! :lol:
