If there are 20 moves in a given position that means the engine is spending 95% of its time evaluating moves that are not the move that will be played. Switching from 5% of its analysis to 100% allows it to see much deeper much more quickly. This is especially true if the line chosen is a forcing line because the engine will be able to eliminate so many ...

I don't know of a mac native .cbh file reader. ChessX seems to use pgn as it's database which can be slow. Using the opening tree and a pgn of 100,000 games it took 30 seconds to show the full tree after each move. This is too slow to be usable for me. I understand that ScidvsMac is more of a true database application and is fast for large databases by ...

You can export subsets of your tree of moves or export each variation as an individual game within the same file. Acording to the manual: "You can export an opening or topic as PGN file which then can be imported by many other chess programs. Several options let you configure the export to your preferences. The most importantone might be the option to ...

Yes, of course it's possible. I've done it a lot professionally. However, there is no tool that just takes a PGN chess game and convert it into images. You will need to do some programming, not very hard. Here is a link on how one can generate machine learning data set on chess. You should be able to reuse the code. I highlighted the part that will relate ...

I don't think calling it a "simple task" in order for someone to give you the code for free is very polite imo. On top of that, is surely doable, but its not a simple task. It requires implementing a class to handle the graphic representation, and another class to do the "translation". Also there are quite a couple of factors to take into consideration. If ...

a) can you train your entire repertoire in one swoop? Or are you forced to choose each opening module and train one at a time? you have to choose the opening you want to train. However, you have control of what is included in an "opening" The only constraint is that White and Black must be separate. So you could have a single "white" opening and a ...

In the world of chess engines, what you're looking for is called multi-PV (multiple principal variations): telling the engine to look for and return up to n best moves and the associated principal variations for each. ("Up to" because sometimes there's only 1 legal move in a position.) In python-chess, this is part of the engine protocols, as one of the ...
