Re: how an engine survives?

Is Rondo ever going commercial? I believe I have asked this question in the past.

Re: Shirov's Bh3, Houdini solves it

WOW - This brings back memories. Right after Shirov played this, (sometime in the 1990's I believe) I gave M-Chess (Whatever was the latest version at the time) the position and let it analyze for 3 days. It did not find Shirov's Bh3.

I seem to remember the pc was a 486 runninf at 100 mhz.

Do I need gtb64.dll for Critter 1.6?

Richard,

As always, thanks for the new engine. When I uncompress it, I see that the gtb dll's are not included. Should I copy over my gtb64.dll from my critter 1.0 directory, or is this no longer necessary?

Re: rating list curiousity :-0

4.1 has some bug fixes but is = strength. If rating lsit has 4.0 stronger is is probably not by much and is due to rsndomness.

The first Aprils fool was easy to spot. Is this a second one, or did Vas really take the time to do this?
