Re: Scan - new version

I think that all it's clear now, because, excepted if it's a bug.
if no if you set 3min/75 moves, any program excepted Damage 15.3 will respect it

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, Ju...

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 PLAYE...

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 t...

Re: New kingsrow version and DTW database

I have released version 1.62 of kingsrow, both hub and UI versions, and a Distance to Win db. When the game position is a win or a loss and in the DTW db, kingsrow will display search results like "white wins in 89 ply". Using it allows kingsrow to play the shortest path to a win. Except for minor ...

Re: Flits self-learning mode

Hi Ed Can we know what's the maximal depth of your book, and if it's generated by self-play or there's a special engine dedicated for it. I hink that, as Kryztof mentionned it, after the end of a book, each program has his own eval ,and will play with his "own" strenght. A opening book can it contai...

Re: Flits self-learning mode

Hi everybody, I'm really sorry, though, what originally, as I have meant more than once was just for fun. Again if Ed, who more than once enlightened me in secret on certain points of Kingsrow or allowed to carry out experiments to run Kingsrow on Android. First of all, I would like to clarify one t...

Re: Flits self-learning mode

I know that in Chess opening books play an important role, I have (indeed) no evidence yet that this also applies to Computer Draughts. On the other hand I see that Damage struggles with specific openings (in the 2 - move ballot). As an example the 1st 2-move ballot with Damage as black to move, wh...

Re: Flits self-learning mode

Out of curiosity Damage (recent version, not yet posted), played a 158 games match (2-ballot move) against Flits (not the Hub version which I do not have), with the flits-dxp-server and the new openings book. Conditions 1 core each (so did not use the multi-core option of Damage), 1 min / 75 moves,...

Re: Flits self-learning mode

The point is to play only from the initial position and not to use ballots. Then to compare the results against Flits-book with the results against Flits+book. But really this applies only to Kingsrow and Scan at the moment. Exactly, and i will do the 2 moves ballots soon, before i wil release befo...
