Re: a new tafl-variant?

I still see six of the variegated men on the white side—I suppose by 'the white army' you mean the inner diamond? Or is that a mistake in the graphic?

Re: Tafler computer program

Only on the order of 100,000 states per second on 9x9 boards—OpenTafl is not written with speed first in mind, and even leaving that aside, there's still quite a bit of low-hanging fruit I haven't bothered to pluck. I'm working on a Monte Carlo AI, which should help me make up some of the deficit by...

Re: Tafler computer program

Impressive! I think that gives you the speed record. I look forward to the eventual open source version—I ended up giving bitboards a pass because I didn't have a good idea of how to handle them for boards with more than 64 spaces, so seeing how you approached the problem will definitely be instruct...

Re: a new tafl-variant?

Does the OpenTafl game window open when you run OpenTafl.sh? If not, you'll need to install Java. Playing around on a Mac I have handy, opening a Terminal window and typing 'java' should request that Java be installed.

Once that's done, running OpenTafl.sh should work.

Re: a new tafl-variant?

Here's a development release of OpenTafl which implements guards and this rule set: http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=76119516892858414108 I played a game against the AI (although a 17x17 board is well beyond its capability to play with any real skill), and thought it was engaging. The gu...

Re: a new tafl-variant?

Fascinating! I don't have support in OpenTafl for the guard-type taflman yet—is that your own invention?—but I don't think it would be too hard to add. Next time I have some spare cycles, perhaps I'll see about implementing your ruleset for some quick testing.

OpenTafl notation formats

I've seen a few questions about standardized tafl notation in some threads in this subforum, so I thought I'd point to some work I've done on that front as part of my OpenTafl project. In particular, I've written specifications for computer-parseable formats for tafl variant rules and tafl games, as...

Re: Neural networks artificial intelligence

Michel, I'd be very interested in taking a look at that dataset, if the offer still stands.

Re: Tafler computer program

What kind of state-per-second search speed are you up to?

I've done some work on protocols for tafl engines to communicate with tafl hosts, so if you're ever interested in supporting external engines, you can take a look at my OpenTafl project on Github: https://github.com/jslater89/OpenTafl
