Re: Friendly Chess 2.0 (3.0 engine)

i got a warning from avast antivirus about this download.
i did a scan and found it contained some files that could not be scanned
so i deleted the file.
any reason for such unscanable file?

Re: crafty23.5 freezes in opening on fics

hi peter,
same here till the last version.
i deleted the learn line and it seems like its settled down.
no glitchs so far.
ive had crafty running on fics since 2000 and the only
other problem i had was my anti virus sandboxing it.
