Re: Flits self-learning mode

I have a magic trick to cheer people up, I just show them a part of my life. Years ago, Sidiki and I (independently) told everyone that Edeon Sport was using Scan 2's eval. What did Krzysztof do? He paid them for the next version (as I recall; not 100% sure). So every tournament (that was twice a y...

Re: Hard disk performance

Thank you Joost. I have a huge request to you Joost. You wouldn't have made the Nalimov (6P) database available online.

Re: Hard disk performance

Thank you for your answer Joost. It doesn't make sense to buy such a disk. And how does it relate to chess Joost.

Re: Hard disk performance

It also depends if all databases are preloaded in the DB cache at the start. If this is the case, you might not see the advantage at all (only a faster initialization). Damage has an option for preload of all 7P DBs (when cache is sufficient). For Kingsrow with the 8P DB, then a fast SSD has certai...

Re: Hard disk performance

I have a few of these NVME drives in use (although 2TB), the tranfer-rate (random and sequential) is about 5 to 6 times as high as what you get from regular IDE SSDs. They are very useful for endgame databases, for other applications I don't see much difference. You are probably better off with the...

Hard disk performance

I would like to buy a hard disk Samsung 970 Pro 1TB M.2. I have a question. Is it worth buying it and what will be the disk performance for draughts such as Kingsrow, Damage, Dragon, Scan, Maximus , Sjende Blyn, Moby Dam and other draughts programs. I'm also interested in what the performance will b...

Can we see some data please? Play a couple of games and record the search scores from Edeon of each move. Post it here.
The program only shows the board with the game, the variant and the save of the game.

Edeon Sport

I asked Edeon Sport developers about the program code and whether they are using the Scan 2.0 program code. Information on the answer to this question can be found on the forum's website http://www.shashki.com/PNphpBB2-viewtopic-t-2828.html

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

Hi Jan. Can I ask you to reconsider further participation in the tournament? Man sometimes makes hasty decisions, and later regret it. Please think about Jan and I will not remove the program from my site for the next two weeks. Please remember that this is just fun on my part. I am asking you to th...
