Hi All

Yesterday I had the chance to try out Resurrection Fruit 2005 against a new acquistion, a Bavaria, with 68030 London modules aboard. The game was an interesting one.

Coming out of the opening London is a pawn up with no obvious problems providing it can get it's king out of the centre. Fruit never lets this happen. This photo/coffee break is perhaps the critical position, Fruit has advanced the h pawn, forcing the knight to e2 and fixing the king in the centre for the next few moves.



White has taken the d pawn with the queen thereby inviting black's queen to join the attack -



Going after the king Fruit leaves a bishop en prise for 10 moves. I am not sure a human player would have been able to do that?

[Event "Game in 30 Minutes"]
[Site "Milton Keynes"]
[Date "2006.01.31"]
[Round "1"]
[White "Bavaria Genius 68030 London"]
[Black "Resurrection Fruit 2005"]
[Result "0-1"]
[ECO "E42"]

1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 Bb4 4. e3 c5 5.
Nge2 b6 6. a3 Ba5 7. Ng3 Bb7 8. Rb1 Qe7 9. Ra1 O-O 10. Bd2 Na6 11. f3 Rac8 12.
Nb5 Bxd2+ 13. Qxd2 Nc7 14. Nxa7 Ra8 15. Nb5 Nxb5 16. cxb5 h5 17. e4 h4 18. Ne2

38. Nxe2 Nxb5 39. Qxb6 Nxc7 40. Qxc7 Qxb4+ 41. Kf2 Rxe7 42. Qb8+ Kh7 43. Re1 h3
44. Qg3 hxg2 45. Qxg2 Ba6 46. Qg3 d4 47. Qh3+ Kg8 48. Qg2 Qb6 49. Qa8+ Kh7 50.
Qd5 d3+ 51. Nd4 Qb2+ 52. Kg3 f4+ 53. Kg4 Rxe1 54. Nf3 Bc8+ 55. Kxf4 Qc1+ 56.
Kg3 Qc7+ 57. Kg2 Re2+ 58. Kh1 Qc1+ 59. Ng1 d2 60. Qd3+ g6 61. Qh3+ Kg7 62. Qf3
d1=Q 63. Qg3 Bb7+ 64. Qg2 Bxg2# 0-1

So Fruit 2005 gives the previous Mephisto champ a good hiding.

No further development on the Resurrection front at the moment. Ruud, as he said below, is going through his final year at college (at his age  ). I just hope that he passes his exams first time around.

Regards to all
Mike

Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year to you too.

You have made 2005 a memorable year for chess computer enthusiasts. My sincere thanks. I was hoping that Father Christmas was going to bring me a Graphic Display Module, but I guess that would have been too much for one year.    Next Spring perhaps? 

All the very best

Hi Ruud!

Any chances we may see a Resurrection Jr in 2006? 
Maybe a simple module with just the CPU+keypad+display so we can use a regular board to play with?

2.06 has fought its way through the AOL maximum security barrier and has arrived safely, twice.

I have told AOL never, ever to refuse your emails again. It will make no difference.

Excellent Ruud. Very worthwhile improvements. I shall look forward to playing with the Show Game function in particular. This and the Keep Move Display will help in following and understanding games.

Resurrection UK now has a smart Munchen board bought especially for it. I shall install Resurrection in its new home when it can be joined by the Graphical Display Module. That won't be long, will it? 

Best regards
Mike

Resurrection Friends :

2.06 :
- Clear board function
- Show Game function (to read the game back from save game). Contains moves and
evaluation value.
- Keep move display function. With this you can set time that move info will be
displayed to 5 or 10 seconds. Or to next move, this means that the info will
remain until the computers move has been performed by the operator.
- New game now operates properly, 2.05 had a bug concerning this matter. You can
even switch engines (with auto newgame) without restarting.

Resurrection Friends.

The #2 place in Leiden was not a surprise..
As stated in other forums i played the second day with 1/3 of the time. And lost 3 out of 5. 
But a full strength at day 1 it was 4 out of 4. !!

So winning may be important, but having fun and close games are perhaps the most important goals...

Resurrection Regard....

Well done Ruud.

Your brainchild is Number One.

It will look so pretty with the Graphical Active Display as well.   

Best wishes

Hey guys,

I got second place this weekend at Leiden. On Saturday we played 45 minutes per side and got 4 out of 4. On Sunday we played 30 minutes per side, but i imposed upon myself a handicap. I played with 1/3 of this time.. Now i only won one game out of five...


But Fruit performed great again
In my opinion Fruit has given Resurrection the #1 position on dedicated chess systems...

Hi Mike,

I haven't played Resurrection for a few weeks and have not followed the threads... so thank you for summing up all the known probs. 

It seems indeed that the New Game function doesn't work properly.

All the mentioned problems are minor ones but I think it's not bad to write them down somewhere. 

Best,
Martin

Can anyone confirm the freezing of Ruffian 2.1 (X)? I've had also some probs after changing the engine and the level and starting playing. Can anyone confirm that too?

There are two interesting observations:

1) Ruffian 2.1 and Ruffian 2.1 (X) play differently (the latter similar to Fruit 05). Do the correct programs load?

2) Deep Sjeng plays 1.a3 d5 tempo: the move is probably in its book with funny consequences...

Other than the problems I mentioned at the start of the Resurrection v Compuchess thread, there is also a consistent problem getting Fruit 2005 to move first as white, I find. A trial and error process of pressing new game, making a move and taking back seems to overcome this but I get the problem every time Fruit 2005 plays white.

I also came across a very obscure pawn promotion bug in Fruit 2005 where a black king on H8 took a white pawn on H7 promoting itself to a white piece on H7 in the process. I could not replicate this however, nor did I have the game score. Perhaps I was hallucinating. 

I have not done enough with Ruffian 2.1 (X) to really comment on your doubt as to which program is loading. There is the freeze on checkmate problem noted on the other thread. I will see if I get your problem also.

My impression is that Ruffian 2.1 is fairly reliable and robust, apart from not apparently recognising 3-fold repetition in the games I played with the oldies.

All the best
Mike

Hi all,

I've posted the following text also at schachcomputer.info.

This is a more than 20 years old test with the following idea: White plays extremely passive to see how the program performs being completely on its own.

Can anyone confirm the freezing of Ruffian 2.1 (X)? I've had also some probs after changing the engine and the level and starting playing. Can anyone confirm that too?

There are two interesting observations:

1) Ruffian 2.1 and Ruffian 2.1 (X) play differently (the latter similar to Fruit 05). Do the correct programs load?

2) Deep Sjeng plays 1.a3 d5 tempo: the move is probably in its book with funny consequences... 

Best,
Martin
