The best settings for the engine Houdini 1.5a x64



Welcome everyone

I will explain the best settings for the engine Houdini
So we need to first follow the steps below very carefully

1. we will adjust the settings interface ( Deep Shredder 12 and Deep Fritz 12 ) or any program that has the same interface

The best settings for the engine Houdini 1.5a x64 2dabcd0b46c917876b47af7c3e62e21268ecbb48c55a61cb9da7e94011272bfd4g

The first step

The second step

What do you mean these settings : Here you can set a number of parameters relating to the games.
Resign:
* "Late" means that the program will have to see three times in a row an evaluation of 6.5 pawn units or worse for itself before it throws in the towel.
* "Early" means it has to see minus 4.8 three times.
* "Never" means exactly that.

Note that the program will not resign if it sees that it's being mated. Why spoil the fun?

Draw:This has the same type of options as resigning – Early, Late and Never.

Single click entry: It's a blitz game, you are completely winning, but your time is running out. Use the single-click entry to avoid this situation.

Normal: If you click a square to which only one piece can move it is immediately moved there. If more than one piece can move to the square then you must click it for the move to be executed. If you click g1 or g8 and short castling is legal it will be automatically executed.

Aggressive: Same as normal, but if more than one piece can move to the clicked square the piece that last moved will automatically be chosen. This allows you to execute a long check sequence or a king march very rapidly. A second difference: if you click a piece that can make a number of moves, if one of these captures the piece the opponent has just moved, then the capture is automatically executed.


The third step

Important Note: When you close the program and re-open it you must make sure all the previous settings

When you close the program and re-open it you do not need to re-adjust the engine settings
Just click on the Load, and restore the previous settings will be saved

What about the Gaviota Table ( Endgame Tablebases ) with Engine Houdini ?
Houdini integrates the Gaviota EGTB probing code © Miguel A. Ballicora. All information about Gaviota EGTB files can be found at the Gaviota web site .
Even without EGTB Houdini is a great performer in the end game because of its extensive built-in knowledge of basic endings (e.g. KQ v KP and KB v KBP). Knowing that the EGTB access is very slow compared to a native evaluation of the position, a generic use of EGTB might actually decrease the
playing strength. To cope with this situation Houdini will vary the frequency at which the EGTB are probed depending on the end game that is occurring.

In difficult endings in which the table bases are very useful (e.g. KQP v KQ or KRP v KR) Houdini will probe the EGTB files much earlier than in endings that are easy to evaluate.

The location of the Gaviota EGTB files is specified in the GaviotaTbPath option. Houdini will scan the folder for the "kqkr.gtb.cpX" file and accordingly decide which compression level to use.

The depth of the earliest probe of an EGTB can be configured with the Hard_Probe_Depth and Soft_Probe_Depth options. In a multi-core environment you may want to increase these values to reduce the likelihood of several cores probing the EGTB simultaneously.

Houdini will always probe the EGTB for the initial position of the search. If an EGTB mate position is identified, the full main line will be shown immediately. If the initial position is an EGTB draw but Houdini has a material advantage, Houdini will still play for a win - the opponent might be human or an engine without end game table bases.

The following UCI options are available:
Hash: Amount of hash table memory used by the program in MB. Default 128, min 4, max 1024/16384 (32/64-bit).
Threads: Maximum number of cores used by the analysis. Default is hardware-dependent, min 1, max 8.
Split_Depth: Minimum depth at which work will be split between cores, see below. Default 10, min 8, max 99.
Ponder: [game play only] Have the engine think during its opponent's time. True (1) or false (0).
Contempt: Level of contempt to avoid draws in game play. Default 1, min 0 (none), max 2 (aggressive).
Analysis_Contempt: [position analysis only] Activate Contempt in position analysis. True (1) or false (0).
MultiPV: [position analysis only] Number of principal variations shown. Default 1, min 1, max 16.
GaviotaTbPath: Folder containing Gaviota EGTB files
GaviotaTbCache: Amount of Gaviota EGTB cache memory in MB. Default 64, min 4, max 1024.
Hard_Probe_Depth: Minimum depth at which a hard EGTB probe is performed. Default 24, min 2, max 99.
Soft_Probe_Depth: Minimum depth at which a soft EGTB probe is performed. Default 16, min 2, max 99.
Setting the correct number of threads when hyper-threading is available
On Intel processors with so-called hyper-threading, it is recommended to set the number of threads not higher than the number of physical cores.
The architecture of Houdini is not very well suited for hyper-threading, use of more threads than physical cores will usually degrade the performance of the engine.


3. Choose the book you want to play it and watch to the settings established by the author .

You are welcome Marijana22
You need some adjustments and additions to the win
1. You must select a strong book. For example ( VESELY book 1.0 )
2. You should put the hash on the maximum Ram. For example, if you have 12 GB RAM choose from 8 GB
3. Do not rush to move, but leave the engine takes enough time in the analysis. Houdini engine needs to be about one minute to give you the best and most powerful move

Best regards

Let me tell you a way to open the book

1.After you download the book unzip the by the program winzip

2.the WinZIP program will compile all parts of the book in one file of type 7z

3.You must have a program 7z search for it in Google and you will find and install on your computer

4.Now unzip ( VESELY book 1.0.7z ) , by 7z program in a special folder and you will find all the book files and image settings

You are welcome : victor jesus
There is no difference between the settings Houdini 32 or Houdini 64
All settings are equal

Remember : Houdini 1.5a x64 is better than Houdini 1.5a w32 ----- 20%

why you choose the number 19 for the Split_Depth

and can yu tell me if this sitting is sutable for i7 980 extreem

Split_Depth: Minimum depth at which work will be split between cores.Default 10, min 8, max 99.

Tuning the Split_Depth parameter on multi-core hardware
The Split_Depth parameter defines the minimum depth at which work will be split between cores.
This parameter can impact the speed of the engine (nodes per second) and should be fine-tuned to get the best performance out of your hardware.

The default value 10 is tuned for quad Core i5/i7 systems, but on other systems it may be advantageous to increase this to 12 or 13.
To select the best Split_Depth for your system you should analyze some positions for a fixed duration (e.g. 30 seconds) and measure the average nodes/second.
Do this for all values of Split_Depth between 10 and 14, and keep the value that produces the highest average node speed.

After several tests, the best number is 19
