Haha,
watch all games (you can watch your live games)?

You can also watch all games on PlayChess. There the opponents are much stronger. Only: What should ProteusSF watch on PlayChess? There's nothing to watch. Unfortunately.

His two main accounts only play games against their own test accounts and only 2 games a week just to push his Elo. :roll:

He gives advice to others, but he himself does not do what he says.

Question to AlexChess: when will we be able to see more games of your gold versions? Two games a week, plus against your own test accounts, that's nothing. You are also welcome to compete against me in a duel on 100 games. Then we'll see how good you are. However, I do not play against cheaters. Play normal games first, then I'll be happy to remove you from my ignore list.

No please, keep him here :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
I'm just saying...let him 'put up or shut up' as they say. But maybe you (or he) does not want to play and settle it.

I would ever love to watch the ProteusSF GOLD supergames, but there aren't any! For many weeks its engine has only been playing 2 games a week against itself (test accounts), how am I supposed to watch ProteusSF games? I would like so much, but there is nothing...

Here's where I posted the state of ProteusSF:
https://talkchess.com/forum3/viewtopic. ... 50#p945160

Total games on March 21:
544
182

He shows up on the server almost every day and brags about his rating.

See a victories only against its test accounts:

ProteusSF test accounts:
Fourcores, ethereal-14-00, proteussf, chesscombot (and 2 more)

I will post a new photo in 14 days. I'm curious if ProteusSF Sunrise GOLD and ProteusSF Crystal GOLD will also play against other opponents than his test accounts, and how many games in total?

My prognosis:
He will continue to only play a few games against his test accounts.
If he should play against others, then only as a cherry picker.

All other players will not enjoy playing against ProteusSF. Unfortunately, this engine is just a showcase dummy, sorry to say, but that's the truth at the moment.

Hi Alexchess

Tanks a lot, now, with your help I am registered.
I have tried : bank
Write down a term that is NOT related to Banksia GUI: flower, graphics, tournament, bank, chess, interface, software:
This means in fact : Write one of these terms : flower, graphics, tournament, bank, chess, interface, software.
This is really twisted logic for me.

Happy for that!

With Pham, we are trying to spread BanksiaGUI features. If you have specific requests like compiling engines for Mac or Android, feel free to ask me :D

Hi Cornfed! Really, If you are a programmer or a chess engines fan, reach me at Lichess.org. With some cosmetic changes it could become THE server for playing chess engines online. Statistics, LichessTV to watch our live games from web and a lot of features still hidden, but I'm learning how to exploit all his potentials. There are very good bots to challenge: Caissa-x, ToromBOT, Mate-AI, Iliketoplaychess, Shineshou90_BOT, Raspfish,

Even if online ELO is absolutely inconsistent related to FIDE and 3000 or 2900 range (like in Lichess) IS MEANINGLESS while comparing a 60$ Raspberry with a 128 threads 10000$ ThreadRipper on the same little poll, is a nice benchmark relative to YOUR hardware, to test YOUR improvements. There, thanks to the fact that wonderful BanksiaGUI is cross-platform, I can also use NATIVELY my Mac M1 setting all 8 CPUs finally reaching 6-20 MN/s, my Core i5 PC 4 CPUs 2.5 MN/s, but even my Mac mini 2010 300 kN/s 2 cores is still very competitive, so I leave it online 24h/24 and it is on top ranking challenging all this unknown but strong bots (most of them are Stockfish, LC0, or top engines anyway :wink:)

No thanks.
Not a programmer and have no interest in playing engines....just was trying to get you two to talk because it's all getting pretty silly...elo = ego and we have too much ego in this world. I only use engines for analysis.
