Hi everyone!
it is aweful that chesstroid is Stuck on February.
but,the visitors of this website keep its alive.
I thanked both Rahul and karim who provides us engine and book when gurcan and alexie are silent. okay now I am going to talk about tournament when Rahul post here a tournament result of andscacs/ethereal then I was surprised by the result. The results show tat ethereal is stronger than andscacs. So I was very curious to know that Is ethereal exactly stronger than andscacs?and yes,it is.

here I am posting tournament result and I want to see what Rahul and other will say on this.

Hi unknown,
Now, the reality is that we have a new and strong engine "Ethereal"as well as xiphos too.

By your test it has been confirmed.
Thanks!

By the way, In which device you made all games 32-bit or 64-bit and armv8 or armv7.

Because my all game played on 64-bit device and armv8 engine, which is better, faster and reliable.


Rahul Srivastav said...

Hi unknown,
As,you made 1000 games between andscasc and Ethereal, so now I again made a tournament.

See here,

In first link has pgn, its Score of Andscacs 0.921 vs Ethereal 10.76: W214 - L448 - D338 [0.383] 1000
Elo difference: -82.83 +/- 17.75
Ethereal is +82 elo stronger.

Rahul Srivastav said...

Tc-10+0.1 hash-8 threads-1
Score of Stockfish 7 64 vs Ethereal 10.76: 434 - 190 - 376 [0.622] 1000
Elo difference: 86.52 +/- 17.19

Rahul Srivastav said...



Tc=10s+0.1 hash-8 threads-1
Score of CiChess 2.2 110418 x64 POP vs Stockfish 220618 64 POPCNT: 216 - 293 - 491 [0.462] 1000
Elo difference: -26.81 +/- 15.35

As you all can see STOCKFISH doesn't gain much elo against cichess,only +26 elo gain.
Unfortunately, we don't have cichess2.4. if anyone have cichess 2.4 for android then please share with us.
Thanks!!

How do you set +0.1s increment in CfA? Minimum is +1s?

Unknown said...

Yeah!clapping for ethereal.
my tournament on 32-bit and armv7, well what about Xiphos and critter tournament or xiphos and ethereal? I think
xiphos and ethereal would be interesting for tournament.
But sf7 is still stronger.

Rahul Srivastav said...

Hi faiz,

About cerebellum book, I have no idea.
May be,Lazar Dourakis explain it.

Paulzzz said...

To Rahul,thanks for sharing the latest SF,to Faiz yes you can use the Cerebellum book with other engines in DroidFish especially effective in duo with other SF variants like Cfish and SugaR.

faiz irshad said...

Thanx Paulzz and Rahul for information ,Guys do you have XIphos engine I downloaded from here 03 version but that's hang not work properly on droid fish,
One Question guys what do you think which engine is best more human like and more unique I heard XIphos play very beautifully like kasprov and tai , I am looking for a engine who played very uniquely and beautifully

Fresh Stockfish by Sir Alexei Chernakov.Get it here:https://www.mediafire.com/folder/bdicg830bxyl9/New+Stockfish

Paulzzz said...

Thanks again to Raff for sending me the latest Stockfish in time,thanks also to Rahul for sharing the latest Cfish here.To Faiz,in my opinion if you want an engine which can play like human,try Shredder Chess which you can purchase in the Play store.Even though it's an old engine it's still good and makes some deliberate mistake like human.

Rahul Srivastav said...

Hi paulzzz,
I have already posted latest SF.

Paulzzz said...

Hi Rahul,the previously posted SF is dated 010518...

Paulzzz said...

The one I posted is dated 170818...

Rahul Srivastav said...

Ohh! It was my fault.
Feeling sad!
Actually, I have the latest one but I attached a wrong option.

raff1st1 said...

No worries, just a mistake

raff1st1 said...

Thank you

karim ullah said...

hi guys!
i hope you are all fine and healthy,
however i am no more chesstroid follower,because of losing my friendly ASUS Memopad Tablet Which can't be repaired...
so today it reminded me,that once i promised you guys for bringing the ARENA chess book called (Olympaid)to android, means to polyglot format.
so here i am ready with my promise.
to tell you the truth this is my favorite chess book among all that i have,,, the length of this book was so long that most of the opening could reach to checkmate,
so the size of this book was nearly 170mb, therefor i decided to reduce it's size.
BOOK DEPTH: 10moves
BOOK POSITIONS: 22,153 purified positions without duplicates
get the link below
http://www.mediafire.com/file/ei6la2xukl87bi3/Olympaid-Book-for-android.7z/file

NOTE: i have also included the PGN into 7zip file,,,

Paulzzz said...

Many thanks Karim!I hope you keep hanging here...

karim ullah said...

karim ullah said...

hey paul !
i have repeated it many times, i love chestroid and visit it more facebook and any other pages and sites,,,why not i will keep visiting it till it exist or i am alive,
i meant to say i can't follow chess engines lol,,cause i am logon from my old laptop,

Paulzzz said...

Btw guys,the latest Baron chess engine(version 3.43) and it's polyglot book has been released last July by Richard. The opening book can be used in DroidFish,get it here:www.chessprogramming.net/new-version-of-the-baron-v3-43-plus-the-barons-polyglot-opening-book/
I hope the author could also make The Baron engine available for Android.
To our good friend Karim,may I kindly ask if you can make the Olympiad bin book depth up to 14 moves? :-)

karim ullah said...

hey paul
yes i have already converted it to 15moves, but i remember you was always liked shorter depth as 8moves, therefore i convert it to 10moves for you guys,

http://www.mediafire.com/file/hmhczkpgnwmrcem/olympaid-33334p-15m.7z/file

Paulzzz said...

Thank you Karim for your efforts ! Actually I like the longer depth opening books as I use them for studying openings,I only use the short 8-10 moves book for Engine vs Engine games like your recently released Libra8.bin.

Paulzzz said...

Karim have you already saw the huge opening book for Stockfish here?http://www.chess-wizard.com
I just saw this yesterday upon searching the net.
Btw,in your Olympiad-15m file,it has the pgn file but has no bin book yet...can you please share the 15m.bin?The Olympiad book is now one of my favorites...Thank you Karim!:)I hope you're not angry.

karim ullah said...

now you becomes day by day my best online friend,cause my real friend is who, who finds my mistakes, i really appriciate it,infact i mistakenly compressed two times the pgn file, instead of bin file,this is called dizzyness lol, when you have lots of pgn files,but never mind i will share this time both pgn and binary as usual to 7zip...

http://www.mediafire.com/file/9bfmoxga8tasvna/Olympaid-opening-15m-4Android.7z/file

karim ullah said...

me just checked the stockfish opening book ,it had only two lines,,d4 and e4, and it's depth wasn't longer more than 11moves, i personally liked it very less, say it only 5-percent lol,
and yesterday after installing Arena 32bit to my laptop, i noticed it had Olympaid opening book only 529kb abk file, after converting it to polyglot i noticed it was 8moves but had more opening lines that weren't exist into our 10moves Olympaid book,
so i decided to merge it with our 10moves book, and took only some minutes,
it is already ready for sharing ,only waits for your orders,lol....................
