Re: Winter

Gabor, I see that your compiles are much bigger than Jonathan's. Could you tell me what is the difference with the old Winter 0.9? In general, the engines seem to be very similar.

Thanks in advance.

Re: UEAL - Unique Engine Authors License?

In fact, what is legal is allowed. If credit is given where credit is due, there should be no problem. Derivatives can be interesting projects and have merit, and sometimes even little changes are welcome. I personally find the projects of Honey, Shashchess, Sugar, useful. I see that some young auth...

Re: Did all top commercial engines around 2005 violate Fruit 2.1's GPL license?

Madeleine, I have no wish to argue with you. I presented the facts as I remember them, to help you have a global vision when reading the CCC archives. I did not realize that you are a troll.

Re: Did all top commercial engines around 2005 violate Fruit 2.1's GPL license?

Madeleine, no engine was suspected to have violated Fruit GPL licence. The situation was quite different from today. The main focus was about "cloning", and the definition was much more evasive than it is today. While it is clear that Rybka was coded quite differently (Rybka was bitboard, Fruit mail...

Re: Winter

Keep on with the good work, Jonathan! I hope there will be a new version of Winter asap. Jonathan Kreuzer (SlowChess) has shown that nets do not have to be huge to be efficient, and I am sure that you will be able to improve the positional aspects of Winter rapidly, combining several nets for differ...

RubiChess 2.2

Dear Matthies, first congrats and thanks for this new version of RubiChess. Could you give some details about the new version? Did you change/improve the HCE? I read the readme about the NN, but there is not much about the engine. Anyway, RubiChess is an excellent and mature engine and I think that ...

Re: I declare that HCE is dead...

The elo chase killed HCE development. E.g., From my testing at different depths (10-20), I doubt that Komodo's evaluation improved from Komodo 8 to Komodo 12. It was clear that coding more knowledge would have to be a difficult task, and would have to be oriented to more specific knowledge, while mo...

Re: SlowChess Blitz Classic 2.0

Anyway, Jonathan, SlowChess makes a lot of progress following its own path, and I hope you will continue to develop it. Although the nets you use are much smaller, I feel that the difference between SC and SF is mainly a question of speed, while the evaluation is closer. Among others, I tried it in ...
