BanksiaGUI has become the reference for running chess engine tournaments on macOS. It is compatible with the latest versions of macOS. You will need to install command line engines (UCI/Xboard-CECP compatible) in order to use them.
Cutechess does not run on macOS, but cutechess-cli does. Please refer to belofte to find some scripts that use cutechess-cli.
You will need to run Arena chess GUI through an emulator and use linux or windows.
This page lists results of different engines that participate in an XBoard tournament. We will try to obtain a rating based on the tournament results. Please look below for the elo ranking of the different engines.
The tournaments are being played with following rules:
Preselection round, 10 min KO games. Used to calculate indicative start ratings. Completed 01/11/2004.
|Crafty 19.17 SMP||2||1||0||2||2||2||2||2||13,0||81%|
|Crafty 19.13 SMP||1,5||2||1||0||2||2||2||2||12,5||78%|
First tournament based on 30 min KO games. Still used to calculate ratings based on EloStat. Completed 03/09/2005.
|Elo||Factor||Games||Prev. Elo||Prev. Games||Adjust|
|Crafty 19.17 SMP||2600||18||2600||18||+0|
|Crafty 19.13 SMP||2500||18||2500||18||+0|
Based on an estimated rating for the Crafty engine, the other ratings can be calculated. For each engine, the rating will be adjusted after each tournament.
The crafty 19.17 engine approximatly calculates 500 K nodes per second. This means that the crafty ranking can be compared to the ranking on a windows machine.
Note: The calculate factor will also be adjusted to 24 once 1900 is reached and to 16 once 2100 is reached, it will be lowered by 4 for every 12 games until a factor of 12 is reached. New entries after these will be entered at 1400.
It would be better if those calculations were based on ordo. ;-)
