Re: Rodent FRC/960

Re: ChessTricks

Hi
This concept sounds interesting, I think it would also be interesting to play against this tweaked stockfish engine, would it be possible to release your version of stockfish 9 ,so I could play against it or is it not as simple as that?

Thanks

Re: ShashChess

Hi I have a very old 32 bit computer (2008!) and I find the 32 bit compilation just doesn't install on a fritz (chessbase) or a shredder gui. The shredder gui states it is not a uci engine and the fritz 14 gui asks for the identity of the engine author and doesn't seem to accept any manual author in...

Re: Cfish 8 121516 for the macOS

Hi guys What is needed is a handicapping system that plays like a human, I gather this is difficult, we have open source stockfish which is superb and produces a super strong engine, but it would be good if we had some sort of open source program to produce a human type engine, with human styles and...

Re: Macfish 8.1 - windows

Thanks for Macfish and to the windows compilers. Possibly doesnt matter but I notice the skill levels have returned to 20 from 40?

Thanks for your efforts
