Re: stockfish 10 vs. Mephisto III S Glasgow

Just an fyi, you can download a lot of the Mephisto engines as uci if you wanted to run them on the same hardware to compare.

Fritz 17 - Invalid Parameter in CRT

When creating a new tournament in Fritz 17 I seem to get an error "Invalid Parameter in CRT" quite often. Sometime it's after I have added 1/2 dozen engines or so then the application exits after the error. Anyone else getting this? I saw that there was an update and was hoping this was fixed, but a...

Re: Micah 1.0 64-bit Gauntlet for CCRL 40/40

Hi John, Strange, when I try the Micah 1.0 64-bit engine it's like it's intentionally throwing the game. It leaves pieces en prise etc. The game below is a 10 minute game, no book. Did you have to do anything special to set it up? I feel like I am missing something or I got a bad build from https:/...

Re: New engine releases 2019

Minic 1.09 has been released. https://github.com/tryingsomestuff/Minic/releases/tag/1.09 I can't seem to get it to work. It won't register at all on Fritz 17 using "minic_1.09_mingw_x64_x86-64.exe" on Windows 10. I am not sure what mingw is so maybe that's the reason. It registered in Arena but wou...

Re: For fans of old chess computers

Hi Franz, I was looking at this thread and thought to add to it. I have the Fidelity auto sensory Prestige Challenger, what a work of art. The board itself is beautiful \Les I always loved the looks of the Prestige. They sure were expensive when they were originally out though, if I recall somethin...

Re: For fans of old chess computers

Thank you for the feedback. It's unfortunate that the time control for all modules can't be set through the Arena GUI or some *.ini setting where you could define the time control for all the engines.

Re: For fans of old chess computers

I downloaded the MESS-Chess_UCI+WB engines and have been playing them in the Arena interface. I setup a tournament with several of the engines and it seems to work quite well. However after it plays a few games it seems to have a problem where the first move is made and then it goes into some kind o...
