If Duke Nukem was about to comment ChessBase selling Stockfish team work in disguise, probably would say to them:

Never underestimate ChessBase/Albert Silver's ability to scam people

>Engine and NN should have been kept separated.

Chessbase could embed it in their "stockfih-based" engine.

It would be hard for the stockfish team to have avoided the discussion about embedding

altogether and ChessBase would have known about it most likely...

As a result of a previous poll, asking whether the NN should be included in the binary or not.
Now Chessbase can say that FF2 is not stockfish because it has a different NN.
While normally they just made Stockfish use another NN.

They just sell the NN, to use with Stockfish. Now they are able to say they use an engine "based" on Stockfish. While they are in reality just NN maker.

Engine and NN should have been kept separated.

Just downloaded the latest version (Timestamp: 1613857779) and in infinite analysis it seems to just stop after about 5 mins on my 28 core machine, I tried this twice. Went back to SF13 and it does not hang in the same way.

Hikaru talking about FF2. It would be nice to have guys like Stéphane or Joost on stream to talk about that

why sf developers not updating the remaining  elo gainer patches?
2021-02-19 22:00:10
The net is bundled in the executable that's why you don't see it.

thanks a lot for SF13, but new NNUE is missing...

LeelaFish... basically a siren ^^

I also think stockfish is about to get as bug-free as possible if it weren't already !

>Going forward, the Leela Chess Zero and Stockfish teams will join
forces to demonstrate our commitment to open source chess engines and
training tools, and open data. We are convinced that our free and
open-source chess engines serve the chess community very well.

Very well? They currently serve it better than anything else !
Thank goodness you guys want to do that!
(well, I just like chess engines and I am not an expert in need of the strongest one so
being able to run the best chess engine for free is so cool, thank you ! )

@ChessGambit101: It seems SF team has not tested new nets in a while. So no one knows what they're worth. The safe choice is the default one because we know it is strong.
It is possible that one of the new nets is better, but it will be only a few among the 160. And it would not yield more than a couple of elo points. The only way to know would be to test every single one of them.

I would stick with the default net.

Yeahhhhhh!! Stockfish 13 released. Hurrah!!!!!!

Open question:
I am currently using the network 'nn-62ef826d1a6d.nnue' (introduced 20-11-28).

According to this is the 'default net' during the development of Stockfish.

However, there are approximately 160 'more current' networks submitted by different users.

My focus is 'correspondence chess' (i.e. very long time controls against super strong chess players).

Does anyone know if ANY of these other networks are stronger or better (it's hard to find the right adjective)?

And, how do I know the right network to pick going forward?

yay sf13

They should post this staement on their fb/twitter accounts for maximum visibility.
Of course the "proprietary network" had to be from Albert Silver. He pulled the same stunt with Leela's weights if I remember correctly, with no added value of course.
In french we say : "Les cons ça ose tout, c'est à ça qu'on les reconnaît"
(Idiots dare to do anything, that's how we recognize them.)

The stockfish team seems to have taken a stance about fat fritz 2
