this game was run with LCZERO on the new network. It kind of got embarrassed. This is how I usually get mated by Stockfish you can see It's still has some work to do, but I'm excited what it will accomplish in the coming months!!

it does really well, will try it myself when new PC 1060 and so on arrives here shortly. it seems to not "understand" tactics, certainly not in the standard human way, but that ought not to matter. transcending tactics! there's a thought.
Parent - - By Carl Bicknell (*****) [gb] Date 2018-04-13 09:04
Here's a thought to:

Using the old 107 weights, at 30 seconds a move, running on the Nvidia 1060, LCZ is KILLING my dedicated machines. The dedicateds get 1 hour for the whole game, so quite a bit more than LCZero.

LCZero beats the Milano Pro constantly now, and the Polgar. It beat the London 68030 twice yesterday. HIARCS on my iPhone 7 just beat LCZero, but took 60 moves.

And I'm not even using the new, larger network! :twisted:

Tactics are....shockingly bad, yet it sacrifices like it's seeing many moves ahead....

when I get it up and running (awaiting new PC), I'll see about testing it as it develops against my new Chess Tal4 as that develops.

the thought also occured to me to run another Chess ANN distributed build, but using preprocessed attack bitmaps as the inputs, rather than just the board position. Probably, I'll have to get that up and running myself.

is your set up in Windows? and how easy is it to get running? I take it you are using something already built, not compiling from the open sources?

Oooh that sounds interesting. Is Chess Tal 4 NN or alpha beta?

> is your set up in Windows?


Yes.

> and how easy is it to get running?


For a man of your calibre, piece of cake.

> I take it you are using something already built, not compiling from the open sources?


Correct.

You need Arena 3.51 and you'll have to start things off from the command prompt in "Extras", not just adding a normal UCI engine.

The most helpful link is here:

https://github.com/glinscott/leela-chess/wiki/Getting-Started

Follow the instructions for using the engine by downloading two folders: the 0.5 network and the latest weight file. After that the instructions are fairly self-explanatory.
Curiously I'm now averaging 3000 rollouts per second, but the latest network (released yesterday) is 4x bigger apparently and should cause slowdown (albeit, strength increase).

Be prepared to be astonished at how weak it is tactically but how that doesn't seem to hinder it too much!

I've seen they've edited that page a bit so let me try and make it a bit clearer.

1. Download and install latest Arena. Why Arena? Because you need a GUI which supports a command prompt, so it's harder with Fritz and maybe impossible with Aquarium.

2. Go here https://github.com/glinscott/leela-chess/releases and download the GPU win.zip

3. Go here http://lczero.org/networks and download the top file. Currently is says 123. They used to be updated about every 6 hours. It might slow with the larger network, perhaps.

4. Now get all the files into the SAME folder. Rename the weights file "latest.txt"

5. Start command prompt in Arena.

6. Use cd c:\and point to the folder you just created

7. Type lczero.exe -w latest.txt

8. Now install engine in the GUI

You're off. Time per move TC seems to work better than Game in x TC for me, no idea why.

Ponder is not supported, neither is infinite analysis.
Parent - By ChrisW (**) Date 2018-04-13 14:57 Upvotes 1
thanks, it will be a few days yet, since the component bits are still waiting to get put together.

my engine started life with intention of being reorganised data, mobility and so on, as inputs to a ANN. But, I tried plugging them in as an evaluation function with a few weights attached, very crude, but it played in rather spectacular different style, when it didn't totally screw up, so its a bit like Leela, probably, but now via alpha beta search. Then I got carried away and now its a "real" engine with all necessary stuff, albeit in development, missing lots of things I want and so on ....

There you see the instructions for Fritz (which works for Aquarium, too) and the instructions for version 0.6 are the ones that describe using "inbetween". What I mean with path is the argument -w that requires a path to the network. For me the absolute path was required.

Carl:
   Are your instructions a method to play against LC0 in a GUI (Arena)?

    I followed the instructions in the github link to contribute 5 of my 36 cores; it completed several games in 10 minutes. This was visible in a Windows 10 command prompt.
    I copied and pasted one of the games from the command prompt into Aquarium and then analyzed the game with SF (mate in 61 moves).
    LC0 is incredibly weak if I believe the SF evals. It seemed to be a case of: winner is the one who makes 2nd to last blunder.
   We also read that LC0 now about the strength of FIDE 2539. How is this possible?
   Keep in mind what Petrosian--of all people--said: "Chess is all tactics."

Do the NN chess experts have an informed guess as to the likelihood (and timeframe) of how and when LC0 (or a clone) will be commercially available for the use of chess analysts and correspondence players?
Or perhaps an alternative whereby players can train their own MCTS beast to use locally?

If you keep scrolling up I've given instructions on how to get and use it NOW.

The only thing I'd change is that time per move - for me at any rate - now seems to be broken, but Game in x and Game in x + y works fine as a time control.

If you have a fast graphics card, so much the better.

Thanks to Sesse  & Carl. Now you guys have made me ambitious about MTCS!
  Even though LC0 can't beat SF9 yet, that could happen by year end based on your comments.
  So I will try to 1) install LC0 client into Arena as per Carl's instructions. I thought that only gave you a client to play against LC0. But you guys say that somehow, when LC0 is strong enough (or now), one can use those instructions to turn LC0 into a chess analysis tool?

   2) System2: graphics card doesn't work with Supermicro mobo so ROM/BIOS uses (on the mobo?)
      Aspeed graphics family (WDDM); Chip type: AST 1400/2400; DAC type: AST DAC; Display only display device; approx total memory 32,713 MB; display memory 0; shared memory 32,713
   System2 is fastest system with 36 cores, so it is most used, especially for i.a.

Therefore, should I buy a fast graphics card (NVIDIA GTX 1080 or 1080 Ti ?) and if so, in what system should I put it?
  Or wait till after 8/2018 when better deals will be available on same or better graphics cards; and LC0 will be stronger?

Carl:
I tried to follow your instructions but did not work.
  I got up to here:
  "7. Type lczero.exe -w latest.txt"
      This probably worked, as I got in the command prompt window: a great deal of text from lc0, ending in "BLAS Core: Sandybridge".
"8. Now install engine in the GUI"
I opened Arena GUI, installed "lczero.exe" with a game loaded, and then loaded the "lc0.exe"; pressed Analyze. But nothing happened in the GUI window.  I'm not looking to play a game, but analyze games using LC0. I'm not off.
  I havr the GPU folder, so don't know if I have to do something special to allow the GPU to be accessed on this system.

"You're off. Time per move TC seems to work better than Game in x TC for me, no idea why."

when you installed the engine in the GUI did you also type "-w latest.txt" in the box just below the engine name? It needs that command to know where to find the weights file

I did not see any option in the GUI / Install engine to type anything anywhere; and don't see now to remove engine so can try again. I used UCI engine.

I found \Engines\Manage\General\Command Line and typed
"-w latest.txt"
I don't know if that's what you meant but it seems to work when I click "Analyze".
Thanks for your experize, CMA
