Re: Question about endgame databases

Ed, first of all thanks for sharing this huge effort with the draughts community. As, although it might not be rocket science, it takes lots of resources and time. I guess your arguments make sense. In the chess world this is already common practice, as all programs (or many) use the Syzygy tableba...

Hi Luzima Araujo.

Do you still generate the base ends to Dragon.
Hi Grzelak!

Luzimar seems to have lost his password to login here on the forum. Even so, he and I gave up generating the bases some time ago.

Hug!

Re: Unofficial World Championship Of Computer Programs In International Draughts 2021

What maybe could be done, would be to Generate a PDN with the FEN in position so that the programs could follow the game with the reduced time. edit: I should add, the list above is a valid pdn game. It doesn't have a * game terminator, but any pdn parser should handle it properly. Headers are not ...

Re: Unofficial World Championship Of Computer Programs In International Draughts 2021

The tournament has already started very interesting... In advance, congratulations Grzelak! A question, are you using any opening books for Flits 3.1? I realize that Flits would hardly lose some of the perts I've seen if he was without a book, for example. I happen to have the version here, and I n...

Krzysztof, I've uploaded the corrected version to Dropbox, it also contains a different network: https://www.dropbox.com/s/cdvxn4ygbbhl5tx/Ares%20NNUE%20ver.%201.41b.rar?dl=0 For the time being this is as good as it gets, probably I have better networks but testing which one is the best takes too m...

Match SJENDE BLYN - KINGSROW (2-move ballots) Postponed to another date. Download unavailable! Does anyone still have the file? Dear Krzysztof Grzelak, please disregard the previous question as it was hasty. As for the match between Kingsrow and Sjende Blyn, is it still possible? Grateful!!!

Re: Processor for draughts

So lately I am thinking about buying a new processor for checkers for tournaments. I thought about the intel processor. And exactly such Intel Core i9-10980XE. What do you think, dear programmers, and whether it will be a good buy. For this I would buy a motherboard ASUS PRIME X299-A II. I think it...

Re: Complexity of Checkers and Draughts on board sizes 6x6/8x8/10x10/12x12/14x14

Complexity of Checkers and Draughts on board sizes 6x6/8x8/10x10/12x12/14x14 The complexity of games is usually expressed by two numbers: the state-space complexity (SSC) and the game-tree complexity (GTC). The SSC is the number of positions that can be reached from the initial position. The GTC is...

Thank you for the information pontel.
There's nothing to thank my friend!

Another possibility to run software for MS-DOS would be using the programs in a Windows XP virtual machine.

To the next...
