Re: Dragon - question

Hi Michel.

I have a question for you regarding 8 piece database. If you have the full database version, I understand that the program uses hard disk search, not ram.

Krzysztof.

Re: Scan - new version

I am finishing the topic. I leave the decisions to Fabian. Fabian will do what he thinks is right.

Re: Scan - new version

Krzysztof, Before doing all these sentences for draw adjucating, try Scan vs Scan or Mobydam vs Mobydam, you will see that they will play until, if it's win or draw, the human that you are will be convinced of the result. I know that Kingsrow stop the game even with 4 or more pieces on the board, J...

Re: Scan - new version

I wonder how the user of the Scan 3.1 program is informed that the same position has occurred three times.

Re: Scan - new version

Of course, if the same position was repeated 3 times, I gave it a draw. But when I was playing Scan, this was the case, and I was surprised it couldn't be played anymore.

@Sidiki

Another thing is that you count too much on the player, and let the player make a mistake, what then?

Re: Scan - new version

Hi Krzysztof, Concerning program writing, i think that any programmer is most placed to explain anything to you. I program too, and what Fabien try to tell to you, and i done it before. You don't understood because you stay focalised on what it's in your mind. IF YOU ARE REALLY A GOOD DRAUGHTS PLAY...

Re: Scan - new version

In Aurora Borealis Professional, if the position is repeated 3 times, the program shows a window with the word "Draw" and the program does not play any further. So it should look like.

Re: Scan - new version

Unfortunately, I don't think that playing to the end is possible in draughts. For some reason, the tradition seems to be to stop the game after a fixed number of moves. The problem is, what to do after that? It seems that you need a way to adjudicate the game; using endgame tables from another prog...

Re: Scan - new version

I don't understand your paragraph, but I can comment on the "play to the end" part. It is customary in other games, and chess in particular, to always play the game to the end. Tournament directors use special rules to shorten boring endgames, like king+rook vs king+rook (similar to king vs king in...

Re: Scan - new version

It's up to the user or interface to interpret the result, not the engine. The engine will just keep playing moves. Its job is to play, not organise tournaments. It's possible that, even after all those years, you are still confusing Scan (the subject of your request) and Hub. Scan is the brain and ...

Re: Scan - new version

Hi, I think that excepted, some more complicated positions including King, any 6 endgame or any engine will show the score 00 for Scan or 3 for Kingsrow. Also any human with a minimum level can know a draw position. Sorry but, i don't see the interest to do a problem with this. Kingsrow, according ...

Re: Scan - new version

Another argument is that Jaap Bus is also not entirely right. He does 20 minutes or 15 out of 75 moves. Imagine Jaap Bus is doing a 3-minute tournament of 75 moves. In this case (if someone insisted - or one of the programmers would play to the end) there are no more agreements between the programme...

And what will happen if the engine repeats the same position three times.

Scan - new version

I have a huge and heartfelt request to Fabien Letouzey. Can you make a new version of the program Scan. I am asking you to include a draw in the game, so: - if during the next 25 moves only kings are rearranged, and none of the players moves with an ordinary pawn or captures; - if the same position ...
