Damage NNUE - future request

Post by Krzysztof Grzelak » Sun Oct 31, 2021 08:58

A huge and cordial request to the author of the Damage NNUE program. Can you ask to make the program also under DXP, you can play for longer times.I noticed during testing that when playing with DXP for 3 minutes or 5 minutes the program thought and used about 40-50 seconds for the entire game.It would be good for the program to use all the time for the game.Thank you in advance for doing this in the Damage NNUE program in the future.

Krzysztof,

Damage has a very simple time-management, where (more or less) all moves get the same time.
Unfortunately when Damage gets into the late middlegame, then often (due to endgame databases), the move is played very fast.
I know i need to change it one day, but the risk it that if is spent too much time in the beginning, I can lose on the clock later.
So it is on my things to do list, but not the main priority.

However, I think it is very important when playing with DXP. If the engine used all the time, it would calculate more variants. And so the program responds quickly and often does not use all the time for the game.

Krzysztof,

for now i took a "short" draughts computing break, so i have no plan or intention to release a new version on short term.

I understand and thanks for the answer Bert. I thought that you are making a new version because the last version has been removed from the server.
