Re: Komodo 12 and MCTS

Isn't a bug?! Is it expected behavior? Komodo's causing his computer to freeze, that's a serious bug. Just a bit of clarification. The engine freezes and causes the GUI to stop giving information.

Re: McBrain v2.1 Release

Hi Michael,

Thank you for these interesting engine versions.

Cheers,
Kaj

Cheers,
Kaj
