Re: Difference between program using pondering or no

Hi all,

In others words, i will be glad to know if it's possible to active the pondering option into Scan's "scan.ini", i read in the hub file precisely in "engine.ini" the line "pondering = true".
If someone can show me the way to active it, it will be so kind. Thank.

Difference between program using pondering or no

Hi all programmers, Many stronger programs like Scan and Damage, Dragon in the past, don't use pondering and are so deeper. I want to know if use pondering can increase the strenght of a program or is it in certains way a weakness by limiting the deep search. Scan or Damage can they use pondering ? ...

Re: Scan's 4x4 pattern concept and non losing game

Hi Fabien,
Thank for taking time to answer me. I understood now. So to do a summary, Scan use self learning to improve his game.
Something isn't clear in my mind, you said that Dragon evaluation it's better than Scan's, but from where coming this difference of strenght ?
Thank again.
Catherine.

Scan's 4x4 pattern concept and non losing game

Hi all programmers, I saw like you all the DXP games played by Scan against Kingsrow and Dragon, the only and surprising thing that we notice, is that it don't lose a single game.
