Fritjof: a basic hnefatafl games review software

Hello! I coded a simple program useful to store games offline and do some basic review with variations handling, position editing, possibility to add comments, markers, arrows... screenshot.jpg It is not perfect (I'm not responsible of possible bugs if you try to add variations of variations of vari...

Re: Neural networks artificial intelligence

I may have access to a supercomputing center if needed (not sure if it must be dedicated to my pro projects or if there is some tolerance...) In any case I agree it's good to have an optimized code in the first place. Yeah something I find very representative of the flaws in our understanding (and a...

Add the possibility to download the games?

Hello, I'm currently programming a hnefatafl game review software which begins to have a good shape, and I'd like to download the games I play here to review them thoroughly offline (with the possibility to add variations, comment, modify positions, add markers or arrows...) Is it possible to add a ...

Re: Repetition of moves: some dubious positions

I agree with nath. That's the point of all my examples: showing tricky exceptions. I also agree on the solution: white should win or lose. The balance is not expected to change much in any case as repetitions are very often "white's fault". It's simple, elegant, easy to understand, easy to implement...

Re: Neural networks artificial intelligence

Hello Nath and thank you for your answer, Yes after playing a bit with the code I realized by myself that this method couldn't be blindly applied to hnefatafl. Actually it already takes a very long time to get an acceptable AI playing connect4. As I wrote in my previous post, I have no experience at...

Re: Neural networks artificial intelligence

Hello, Is there any update on this topic since last year? I have found a code here: https://medium.com/applied-data-science/how-to-build-your-own-alphazero-ai-using-python-and-keras-7f664945c188 which seems very easy to adapt to any game. I have no expertise on AI but if I understand the procedure c...

Re: Repetition of moves: some dubious positions

I appreciate that your examples support your suggestion that all repetitions could be punished to white. My goal here is not so much to defend this suggestion but to show that the current statement of the repetition rule is dubious. In the first situation, it looks not fair to punish white (and nei...

White is surrounded and has lost in a few moves.
Only if he breaks the repetition, right?

Re: Repetition of moves: some dubious positions

Exactly. Black could let white capture the piece and then seal up the whole corner. The battle is in full swing, and this game has not reached a point of repetetion. What if you remove the b2 pawn and put a white pawn in f3? The point is that you can always adapt the showcase example in order to se...

Re: Repetition of moves: some dubious positions

By the way, the repetition rule has been reworded to: I really don't like that a rule may be subject to interpretation. In the 3 cases I showed, it could lead to a debate with my opponent. For instance in the first situation, white loses in one move whereas black loses in 2 if white escapes on the ...
