Hex software: Benzene with Mohex and Wolve, also Six, Hexy, anything else: is anyone maintaining anything?
  • David J Bush ★ at 2016-12-17

    There are quite a few engines to practice against, but it seems none of them are maintained any more.

    There are several older threads about one of these engines or another. I hope to revive this general topic and am asking for any up to date info on what method still works.

    My OS is Linux Mint 18 using Mate 1.14.1 and I am particularly interested in MoHex, but any info that might help someone else get a working computer opponent is welcome.

    Thanks very much!

    David, I don’t know about any. By the way, is any of this valid for windows? I’d like something to analyse the endings. Not for LG games, because that’s obviously cheating. Also I wouldn’t trust computer more than my assessment.

    With lazyplayer we tried to improve our general knowledge by playing on 15x15, however we reach endgames that we cannot agree who has advantage... even after 1-2 hours of trying different variations.

    Another thing is that probably the exsiting software cannot solve much either in a reasonable time. (say, 15x15 with 40 stones on the board)
