Re: 2020 ICGA Events

No, public is not not allowed. It is a closed event. You cannot open the windows. Security protects the doors and there is no internet in the tournament hall. But you can wave your hands in the direction of the windows and maybe somebody inside sees it. The chairs in the tournament hall crash down t...

Re: 2020 ICGA Events

I have heard the participants start with their machines on their shoulders in Somport (Aragón) and when they arrive in Santiago they begin with the blitz tournament.

Re: Cstal DOS

The version you refer to had broken style feature. All the style values are so much disarranged that the engines play very weak. It was published as a demo (pre beta of Cstal III) for other engine programmers to make their engine running in the Cstal III gui. It cannot be used for playing strength p...

Re: Cstal DOS

I am not so sure if Chris w. Is a big help in this.

He mainly sold his company oxford softworks and also chess system tal together with all sources to another company
and now lives in another country.
He was not very constructive when it came about chess system tal in this forum.

Re: Cstal DOS

Yes CSTal dos is a nice program. It shows a lot of engine information about tree and evaluation. Of course it was made for playing against humans. If you let it play against other engines you have to make sure the other engines are as old as CSTal, otherwise CSTal cannot hit because it is outsearched.

Re: What are your Favorite Chess GUI's And Why..

I don't use chess guis for playing chess.
I have wooden boards and dedicated chess computers.

The 2d screen makes no sense. And the backlighted screen makes the eyes tired.

I prefer chess on a real chess board against humans or dedicated chess computers.

Re: If there were one engine I could bring back and covert

In older days the engines were kind of twin brother of the programmer. They showed the personality of the programmer. Today in times of strong open source codes, the programs are no twins of the programmers anymore. They are kind of clone of the public available sources. That’s making in uninteresti...
