And it flatulates gammon rate against a truncated settlement window.
Oh, OK then, I haven't got a clue what I'm talking about. My matches were all played on Level, er, 6. *Looks at shoes* Sort of. Well, you know, roughly Level 6. The one below that then, yes. Level int(pi^2/2). *Looks out out the window* Level 5, alright? Level frigging 5 and it beats me, OK?
Anyway ( ) here are some charts of me against JF Level 5.
|Measure||Total Played||Wins (%)|
|Error||Av. Errors per Game|
The following chart shows a FIBS ratings simulation of me vs Jellyfish.
Difficult to believe, I know, but my rating is the lower one. I gather some comfort from the fact that I started myself and Jellyfish both on an initial rating of 1500. On FIBS itself, Jellyfish Level 5 (jf_level_five) was rated around 1900 in mid-August 1996, and I was rated around 1600. If I use those ratings to start this graph, then the picture is different. It seems that my 'true' FIBS rating should be around 200 points lower than jf_level_five. As the difference between our ratings is currently 300, I should gain ratings on FIBS by playing jf_level_five a lot. Bizarre concept...! Here's a graph starting at those ratings.
The graph below charts, on average per game per match, how many times I take a cube that Jellyfish says I should have dropped. E.g. if a 13 point match lasts 10 games and I take two 'bad' cubes, the figure for that match will be 2/10 = 0.2.
And the next graph does the same for my offering of early cubes, i.e. when I double without being good enough to double.
As you can see from the above two charts, match 53 was a bit of a disaster. The 13pt match lasted only two games. Both times I cubed Jellyfish far too early. Both times it cubed back. Both times I took. Both times they were big drops. One was a gammon, the other a backgammon. Hmmph. Well, I did buy Jellyfish to improve my game.
The following graph shows how often per game I double late, i.e. I double when I'm too good in the game and should play on for a gammon. Seems there's no major problem there (but proportionally I get into a market losing position against JF less than it does against me. The program's just too good!).
