Sir Gurcan,

It has been long time since you haven't updated chesstroid.

Would you please update?

Everyone is waiting for this.

Paulzzz said...

I hope Gurcan will still update Chesstroid..

Lazar Dourakis said...

Back in 2017 Chesstroid was quiet in July and some thought it was dead:

No. Just a regular break before a stormy comeback. The longer the break, the heavier the comeback :-)

So perhaps there is hope still..although this time the break is 4+ months so far...

Rahul Srivastav said...

Hi Lazar, Karim and paulzzz

Good morning everyone !
You are all welcome, and its my pleasure.
For today's breakfast I wanted to bring an arena chess opening book to binary format, therefore I chose it from Chessowl blog,http://chessowl.blogspot.com/p/chess-engine-opening-books.html
Book title, HS-20moves 2.0, the author claims of 1,007,272 positions, but as I convert it to pgn, the amount differs a lot, means it is 48505 positions, so I made no chances in pgn and directly convert it to binary, here the link- https://www.mediafire.com/file/6acwl17ulztuhy7/HS-20moves.bin.7z/file , what make me more surprised is, the positions pgn aren't all 20 moves, there you can find 15moves in it, get pgn here -https://www.mediafire.com/file/qm2k85cun52ud5a/HS-20moves-p48505-pgn.7z/file ,
Still the bin book all reaches to 20 moves,I checked it myself, it's amazing

Lazar Dourakis said...

Hi Rahul.Wanted to ask who compiled the engines in your link above? Very Nice!

Wow this is a nice book.Thank you again Karim!

Good morning everyone !
I hope you have benefited from the binary books.
Here I'm again ready with a new compiled book of ARENA called (s-canbaz-v071__perfect)

Please inform me, because this book was compiled somedays earlier

Hi Karim, first two link on talkchess etherelarmv7 and armv8 is for android available. Check carefully please!

Rahul Srivastav said...

Hi all,

Now just, I have tested andscasc vs Ethereal on my octacore device.
I think both are equal or may be ethereal strong. But not yet confirmed in just only 100 games.

Rahul Srivastav said...

Hi all,
Don't ignore this please!

Please help Ethereal,
because by some unknown reason Ethereal is banned from "tcec season 13".

So, please make a request to tcec member for give the permission to play Ethereal in tcec13.
If Ethereal won't play then tcec become bored and will be same consequences as previous s12. Nothing new will be in world of chess without Ethereal.

Here is the Anton(tcec member) email, please mail him and make a request for Ethereal.
(anton.mihailov@gmail.com)

So, don't waste your time, as you read this then at once email Anton.

Thanks!

karim ullah said...

I did

Paulzzz said...

Hi Karim!Thank you very much for compiling the arena book by Sedat Canbaz,the file though has no pgn.
To Rahul thank you for sharing the link for Ethereal,I e-mailed Mr.Anton.

Paulzzz said...

Hi Karim,I have a request.Can you please convert the 2 pgn files into bin book?They are 8 moves GM LB.pgn & 8 moves v2.pgn culled from Vajolet Chess engine github page.Many thanks in advance!

Paulzzz said...

Here is the link:https://github.com/elcabesa/vajolet/tree/master/test

karim ullah said...

Yes Paulzzz I will if Jesus my Lord wished lol,

Rahul why don't you check it first if ethereal is participant of TSEC season, I saw your emotion and I mailed anton, then I released that ethereal 9.64 is already participant of TSEC 12, I didn't check TSEC 11..

karim ullah said...

Oh no I meant to type, realized

Rahul Srivastav said...

Hi Karim and paulzzz,
Thanks for the support to Ethereal.

Actually, At this morning,On tcec chat room Andrew and the one member of tcec began to argue meaninglessly, and the member became angry and banned Andrew and his engine.

As you know that Ethereal is fast growing engine. Ethereal gain much elo in two years.

While others engines are stopped.

I am a big fan of Ethereal and Xiphos.

Great thanks!!!!

Lazar Dourakis said...

Ah yeah i hope ethereal participates in tcec 13 .Latest ethereal 10.55 is incredible.It should be about the same strength or a little stronger than Andscacs 0.921(that Alexei ported for Android) in CCRL 40/4.So about 3200 + elo.Very impressive!!

Rahul Srivastav said...

Hi Lazar and all,

Ethereal is +67 elo over andscasc.
I have made only 300 games and its much accurate. If anyone want to made more game,yet elo gain not be change.
An impressive progress done by Sir Andrew.
If we will get sir Alexie compilation than Ethereal will be more stronger.

Hi all,
Can anyone suggest me, how to use syzygy on cfa?

I want to use syzygy for Ethereal.

raff1st1 said...

I'm assuming you already have tablebases on your phone, if not download them from https://chess.cygnitec.com/tablebases/syzygy/wdl/5/ for example and unpack on your phone. If you already installed Ethereal, than clear it's options and run any new tourney with it. In the box where you chose engines options put full path of your Syzygy, on Android it will be /storage/emulated/0/"yourSyzygyFolderName" or /sdcard/"yourSyzygyFolderName"

Rahul Srivastav said...

I put my path as here on cfa box option
/storage/emulated/0/nemo
On Nemo folder I have contained tablebases.

But, it shows ' found 0 tablebases'.
What I do now?

raff1st1 said...

Are the files in your Nemo/ folder have .rtbw and .rtbz extensions? There should be 290 files for 5-men Syzygy, around 1GB in size unpacked. I just checked newest Ethereal, tablebases work fine with it and with any other engine using Syzygy

raff1st1 said...

...and does anyone here have a contact with Alexei Chernakoff? He was unbeatable with his compiles for Android, faster than my PC :) Android chess is almost dead without this golden guy :(

raff1st1 said...

Good we have couple of programmers who know Android platform chess is a huge % of the users, and they make builds for Android. Kudos to Andy Grant (!), Rasmus Althoff (CT 800), author of Pedone Fabio Gobbato, Xiphos, Delocto and couple of others. The rest see Android as a "slow, unpopular" platform probably :)

Alexie has been disappeared from here and from talkchess.com. I wish, when we visit this site again we see alexie compilation here and say! God help us!
Come back Alexie, it has been too much time.

Rahul Srivastav said...

Hi raff,
In my Nemo folder have .rtbw and .rtbz extension and 293 files total.

raff1st1 said...

You don't really need the first 3 files, they're for PC only, so it gives 290 files - seems ok. Maybe your Syzygy is under too many subfolders, I've got my files under /sdcard/DroidFish/rtb. Try to move your files to make the path look like this: /sdcard/syzygy/3-4-5/"all your rtbw and rtbz files"

Well, the times are going, we had Jim Ablett, we had Aprijal, maybe Alex decided to leave compiling as well, who knows

Rahul Srivastav said...

Hi raff,
A big thanks to you for help me.
Now, I am able to use sygyzy for droidfish and CFA.
Thanks!

raff1st1 said...

Glad I helped :)

raff1st1 are you sure u see alexei cherbakov at 4pda forum? can send any link?

raff1st1 said...

Yes, he was mainly writing in Droidfish thread, but stopped since a month ago. Here's the thread - http://4pda.ru/forum/index.php?showtopic=324262&st=780 . You need to register first to download anything, the last engine he posted is Cfish 060618

Paulzzz said...

Hi Sir,do you have the binaries of this Cfish?I have trouble registering on this site since I'm not adept in understanding Russian.Regards.

raff1st1 said...

Hi Paulzzz, no I don't anymore, but you know there's newer Cfish 20180616 build from Javiolo on Google Play - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=app.packs.cfishengine and 010718 shared by Rahul: https://www71.zippyshare.com/v/nQvKXZVP/file.html ? They're newer, but 10-15% slower unfortunately

raff1st1 said...

I could download Alexei build and share it here later, but I don't wanna install Dropbox, Google Drive, and register etc. I can send it to your e-mail maybe, and than you can share here if you want?

Paulzzz said...

Ok Raff please send the Cfish binaries by Sir Alexei in my email: mhoadievpachu1@gmail.com
