Re: Engine-Speed for around 100 engines!

Hey Frank, Tucano's last version can be found on my github. The last official release is 9.00, but already made 3 updates including this one, so the last development version is 9.03. I'm planning a new release when I have more improvements, probably it will take some time. So maybe we can leave this...

Hi Oliver,

Let me know if you find any issues.

Re: Engine-Speed for around 100 engines!

Hi Frank, Thanks for running this test. I fixed the issue with "movetime" for Tucano. It was exiting early, but now should use the specified time. e.g. uci position fen 3rr1k1/1pqb1ppp/p7/2bp2P1/3B1P2/P2B1Q2/1PP4P/4RR1K w - - go movetime 60000 I rerun the tests on my computer and found it in the las...

Re: Pytorch NNUE training

Maybe I am missing something but this script generates the fen position in the output file, right? I'm looking at write_position method. I think my question is what is the format of the bin file used for training? I guess I can figure it out from the data loader, but wondering if there's something ...

Re: Pytorch NNUE training

ok, I will take a look. I can either port to my engine or create a utility pgn->bin as suggested by Martin.

Thanks!

Re: Pytorch NNUE training

If you want to generate training data in SF format based on you engines search/eval you can take a look at this script, https://github.com/bmdanielsson/marvin-chess/blob/master/scripts/gennnuedata.py . It only relies on standard UCI commands so it should be easy to adapt to any engine. It can outpu...

Re: Pytorch NNUE training

Hi Gary, Thank you for making this available, (and sf, and lc0, and fishtest, etc, etc... :) ) I have a question, from what I understood this trainer loads the data from binary files, how do you generate those files? using nodchip's SF trainer code? The output is generated in a format for SF. If I w...

Re: TucaNNo: neural network research

"I was thinking that a smaller NN probably won't be able to replace HCE completely" not saying a hybrid approach is worse but in Halogen the HCE was completely replaced with a NN and subsequently became a much stronger engine Hi Kieren, Looking at your engine inspired me to go for a small network n...

Re: TucaNNo: neural network research

Isn't usage of neural network similar to resignation. Can't solve the problem so I use a neural network. And if it works no one able to explain the solution (in logic). Or maybe use it only to proof that a solution is possible. Good question Henk, depends on you, if you think is a resignation, mayb...
