Re: Programmer poll: TCEC-like competition for draughts engines

I started (for some years) with a Tournament Manager in the Damage GUI, based upon the previous (old) Hub protocol.
If many developers would implement the latest Hub protocol , than I could further work on this.
And all can give input for functionality.

Computer Draughts, Past Present and Future

On a rainy day in Switzerland, Im further working on my draughts program Damage. As some know, I already started with this hobby (or addiction) in the 1970-1980 period. Staring with a CPU development kit (Z80) , which I used to program in hex a draughts move generator. The first program around 1977-...

Rein, ok than your speed is totally in line with mine.
Can you imagine the nodes/second, on a water cooled 4 GHz 18 core processor :D ?

Re: Internet engine matches

What we could introduce in Draughts Programs is a Contempt Factor, and before the Tournament the Author decides what the factor is for each opponent.
How to program it is another story.....

Re: Internet engine matches

I agree with Wieger that Krzysztof did a great job in organizing the tournament, which for me was a reason to re-join this forum. Where a tournament gives a clue what the best Tournament Engine is (although I guess we suffer her from sufficient statistics), the Engine Match determines the strongest ...

Re: Unofficial World Championships Of Computer Programs Rapid 2019

I don't understand your question, but let me answer it this way. Both Kingsrow and Scan show the speed, Kingsrow in the bottom in KN/s, with Scan you can also see the output (it is the number before the pv (principal variation). In Scan you can activate output in DXP mode with dxp-search = true dxp-...

A match Kingsrow 1.60b - Scan 3.1 ended in a victory for Scan. Match result, 2 wins Scan, 1 win Kingsrow, 155 draws (so around 2% of the games decisive). Thinking time 1 minute, 6 cores each, no pondering. Max speed Kingsrow 80 MNodes/sec, Scan 40MNodes/s. Based upon statistics no reason to state th...

Re: Unofficial World Championships Of Computer Programs Rapid 2019

Krzysztof, maybe there was a misunderstanding I played the match Kingsrow - Scan, and this was 158 draw.

Damage 14.0 loses against the 2!
So maybe you thought that I wrote, that Damage draws against Kingsrow and Scan, which is not the case.

Re: Unofficial World Championships Of Computer Programs Rapid 2019

Krzysztof, what I can do, trying to activate the Engine on my side. As I changed the GUI to play Breaktrough Draughts, not sure the communication still works. I will play a 158 game match with Damage 14.0 against Scan 3.1, 1 minute for every game. You could do the same. I share with you the PDN, and...
