... with 1000 games. 500 more will follow.

Interesting engine right at the corner of an very close group of engine!

Thanks Ingo for the rating lists.

By the way, there is also a StockFish 1.6.3s by Dann Corbit, in addition to the official SF 1.6.3 JA released by the authors.

Where is bright? That might make a good addition to the list.

Hi

I have to disagree as I already have the successor of Brigth in my list.

It's your list! I was just making a suggestion :)

Spark is the new Bright.

(though codebase is different)

Hi

I have a problem testing basicaly the same engine twice.

If Dann makes a substiancial change he should make a Fork, as long as it is no Fork (and no major change) I do not see a reason to test it. Nevertheless I hope Dann finds an improvement which will push the "Dannfish"-engine another 100 Elo :-) I will test it immediately!

Understood.

If I'm not misinformed, Spark is supposed to be the bit board version of Bright, although Bright has different & better evaluations and different play style compared to Spark (don't quote me on this). Take care Ingo.

Hi

Actually I had about 800 games with Bright, Single and Ponder on in my list and it was quite deep rated. Spark is for sure better than this. Even the Ponder off lists have Spark above Bright ...

But thanks for the remark, I am looking for more engines which are "originals" which means that they should not branches of known open source engines (Fruit, Glaurung, Crafty  ...)

Bye

I absolutely agree that Spark is stronger than Bright, besides it being also a bit-board UCI. If I recall, the author stated that Bright is tactically better than Spark (or something to this effect)  but overall, Spark is stronger than Bright. No doubt on this.

Are you saying Spark only beats Bright due to better speed? I really doubt the same author would put a worse evaluation on his new engine.

>> Are you saying Spark only beats Bright due to better speed?


No. I'm saying that though both engines are from the same author, there are differences in both engines, besides the obvious fact that Spark is a bitboard UCI.

where can the 's' version be found?

oudheusa, here http://www.talkchess.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=328088&highlight=#328088
it contains both Smooth Scaling 32-bit and 64-bit versions by Dann Corbit. The 32-bit "s" version is in the "release" folder.
Parent - By oudheusa (*****) Date 2010-02-09 06:36
thanks!
Parent - By Ingo (***) Date 2010-02-05 10:33
... with 1500 games now. Test finished!

It lost a few elo vs more equal opponents but still within the best 15 unique engines!
