Hi!

In this thread I would like to have the new features / options in Rybka 4 listed and described:

1. Large pages (Windows)
2. SSE 4.2
3. ?
4. and so on ...

Searching for answers to that are often difficult. This thread should basically list and describe. Would be best to have the discussion in other threads, to keep this one easy to read.

Who can add some desciptions for that? Or at least give a link

Time control settings
Piece value tweaking
Display upperbounds & Always score main move options (for fail lows and analysis)
Rook endgame scaling
Process priority options
Much better hash usage

For the novice like me could you explain how does the Rook endgame scaling work?
Parent - By Hannibal (**) Date 2010-05-26 02:01
Anyone?

Also a list of Rybka 3 bugs that have been fixed ( if any) in Rybka 4 would surely be helpful in making a decision whether to purchase Rybka 4 (or not).

> Rybka 3 bugs that have been fixed ( if any)


Almost all of them were fixed, it would help if you asked about specific bugs you care about.

Persistent hash would be number one on my list...

It's been taken care of. It won't cause further problems.
Parent - - By Uly (Gold) [mx] Date 2010-05-25 22:25
Ironically, if I wasn't there pointing out "urgent" issues with PH, perhaps Vas would have just fixed the "Enabled" bug and not killed it.
Parent - By Dadi Jonsson (Silver) [is] Date 2010-05-25 22:35
Yes, just requesting that would have been the wisest thing for you to do :)

LOL Dadi, you sound like a mob guy :-)

:cool:

:lol: Vas used a really cool way of taking care of it :lol:
Parent - By buffos (Silver) [gr] Date 2010-05-26 08:05
LOL

Respectfully, "amost all of them" doesn't help me.

Almost all of them = all of them except bishop underpromotion?
Parent - - By Dadi Jonsson (Silver) [is] Date 2010-05-25 22:47
It's a program feature to keep the discussions on the forum going.

Dadi,

Back on 04/11 (see http://rybkaforum.net/cgi-bin/rybkaforum/topic_show.pl?pid=236670;hl=) you promised a sound clip, with a correct pronunciation of your name.

The world is waiting!

So, if Dadi goes to Italy and they say no to him- It's no Dice!

However, Dadi, should certainly stay out of any place where they might speak  Rohingya,or Urdu!

This, like other endgame knowledge and unstoppable pawn scored higher than a queen, and several other things weren't regarded as bugs by Vas.

"things people complain about but which either aren't bugs or won't be fixed (now) for various other reasons."

~Vas

Dadi, what about bringing back the Rybka 3 bugs and non-bugs threads? (unstickied and closed) I don't think sensible information was posted on them, and people would be interested to know.

This is hillarious, so, finally bugs are fixed. Those regarded as bugs. By Vas. LOL. If I was not that lazy I would've wrote a parody on how R4 was developed. And maybe I will. :-)

What about the Rook marching in front of the passed pawn?
