Frequently asked questions about chess bot




Q:
I am afraid of viruses. How can you prove your program is virus free?

A: Here is a virustotal check of the unprotected version of the program. However, some antiviruses can detect the program as malicious indeed. This is because of the program protected with special software, which antiviruses may not like. Please don't worry, it's false positive, so just add the program to whitelist. If you still have doubts, feel free to contact us: chessbotsup@gmail.com

Q: How should I configure program to play as fast as possible?
A: Follow these recommendations:

1. Try to turn off the "Simulate human moves" option.
2. Try to decrease "Engine depth" or calculation time on the Main tab.
3. Try to use the "Play by depth" method for small time controls (like ultrabullet). Static depth will work faster.
4. Try to turn off the "Permanent brain" option, if you're using the "play by time" method for small time controls.
5. Use "battle mode" or minimize the program during the game - this will make bot a little bit faster.
6. Try to lower click and recognition delays. If bot became unstable revert values to initial state.
7. Use good big opening book and endgame tablebases.
8. Make sure to turn off moves animation at website settings. 
9. Try to change screen resolution. Recommended: 1366x768, 1440x900, 1600x900, 1920x1080. Bot will be faster on a smaller screen.
10. Try to disable Windows Aero or any other heavy graphic effects.
11. At lichess.org and chess.com - try to lower the size of the chessboard. ChessBot will be faster on a smaller board (however, if chessboard will be too small, program can become unstable).
12. Use fast chess engine. Try Brainfish engine with the Cerebellum opening book, for example.
13. If you have modern CPU, try to use bmi2 / avx / popcnt / other special versions of the engine. It will calculate moves faster.
14. Set Threads parameter as <Number_of_cpu_cores> - 1. Leave one core for the bot and it will recognize positions and make moves faster.
