Re: Strange error in "Chess Pro - with coach"

This bug has already been noticed and fixed a few weeks ago. Now the app never plays the promotion. The bug was caused by the draw detection in the evaluation function. It was... trying to be a little too smart. :) Thank you for reporting this. Thanks for correcting it. When will the new version co...

Re: Strange error in "Chess Pro - with coach"

About your points 1 and 2: the Chess Tiger engine inside the iOS app has been vastly improved since the last public PC versions, but in the app it is tuned to play against human players. So the behavior of the engine should not be judged by the same standard as other strong engines discussed in thi...

Re: Discocheck "Boney M" is out

After Doublecheck 3.4, I renamed my engine Discocheck (starting with 3.5). Many reasons for that choice: - what used to be double check extensions and specific treatments in the search, actually became discovered check instead. - Discocheck is chess slang for discovered check - it contains disco an...

Re: Daily iPhone chess programs releases

For this specific case, the reason is mostly commercial. Apple wants developers to create apps specifically for the iPad. With the graphic processing power already available since the first iPad, real time resizing is possible and even if it's not perfect it would be better than using the lowest iPh...

Re: Daily iPhone chess programs releases

It's a mystery th...

Re: Daily iPhone chess programs releases

You can blame Apple for this. Ironically, the iPad's resolution is larger in both X and Y than the retina iPhone's. So one can wonder why Apple does not display retina iPhone apps in full resolution on the iPad. I can't think of a single technical reason not to do so. But don't worry, it looks like ...
