Re: Installing LucasR

Tried to install this from http://lucaschess.pythonanywhere.com/home but looks like I'm missing other software. Has anyone managed to get this to work and what extra software did you install, thanks.

Re: Wasp 4.5 Released

Wasp 4.5 is released today. I estimate it to be about 50 Elo stronger than Wasp 4.0. Many thanks John. How do you use the config file. I used example_config with UCI_Elo = 1200 and set ConfigFilePath=./example_config in the Shredder 12 GUI. But it seems to search much more deeply than I expect for ...

Re: Dragon by Komodo Chess
