Re: The Unofficial World Championships Of Computer Programs In International Draughts Blitz 2020

Incredible tournament, incredible work! On what game and when will be the next Championship? I think next year.Will try to get - ask for the availability of the programs Damy and TDKing.

Re: The Unofficial World Championships Of Computer Programs In International Draughts Blitz 2020

Krzystof, without any doubt i will share the next version of the Damage engine. However my focus is to understand some results of the current version of Damage. The 2 draws within a won position, due to move repetition, is clear. As I mostly test against KR, the endgame is never played and the prog...

Re: The Unofficial World Championships Of Computer Programs In International Draughts Blitz 2020

Jelle, as i struggle to replicate the tournament results with black, could you play a 158-games DXP match with SB against Damage. If you both want to use 6p DB, then change the 5 for the bb-cache into 1. bb-cache = 1 bb-size = 6 bb-preload = 6 Maybe with another program (as i normally use KR), some...

Re: The Unofficial World Championships Of Computer Programs In International Draughts Blitz 2020

No problem, but considering the draw in the "Final standings - round 24" Scan should have 1 point less, and Tornado 1 point more. In my opinion everything is well. But I will check again just in case. Everything checked and it's fine. I invite you to tomorrow for the last two rounds. I probably mis...

Re: The Unofficial World Championships Of Computer Programs In International Draughts Blitz 2020

Begin this year I promised Krzysztof a new version for his tournament, gave it yesterday.
Considering some posts I saw I like to mention that Sjende Blyn is not based upon Scan, nor any other program.

Re: Internet engine matches

Actually this means that it: Supports to play one game, either manually or via DXP. Takes risks to win a game against a weaker program / human. The drawback is that it will do the same against a top program, which increases the chance to loose against a top program. Utilizes the available processor ...

Re: Internet engine matches

May be I should remind you guys that Sjende Blyn was set to play in a tournament, against different programs of varying strength, where each program runs on a seperate computer. It was not set to play blitz matches, against one program with excellent strength, on one computer. You asked Krzysztof to...

Re: LAN without internet

Because Krzysztof was having problems with playing 158 2-move ballot games with the tournament version of Sjende Blyn, I proposed to make several "quick & dirty" hacks in the program, he accepted, but now is demanding that I develop several other features too. Sorry, but this will not be developed i...

Re: Internet engine matches

Krzysztof, thank you for running the match. I would like to point out what looks like a problem with your match configuration. You have sjende blyn set to use 16 search threads and pondering on, and kingsrow to use 8 search threads and pondering on. That means that both program are searching at the...

Re: Internet engine matches

I am sorry to write so, but you have to ask the developer of the program Sjende Blyn. Krzysztof. Why didn't you ask him? You asked me. But all right: Jelle, can Krzysztof play a match Sjende Blyn vs Scan 3.1? Jan-Jaap Hi Jan-Jaap, You are right !!!! I think that all of the members of this forum are...

Re: Unofficial World Championships Of Computer Programs Rapid 2019

I fixed some bugs and applied changes to the handling of isolated man (geisoleerde schijven) and locks (opsluitingen).
Apparently, it worked :)
