Re: Senpai 2.0

I have a problem with Senpai 2.0 on my computer. I am using the latest free version of Avira Free Antivirus with Windows 10. Avira insists on identifying Senpai as a virus and it thus gets deleted. I can work around this by deactivating live protection for my computer, but as I don't want to do this...

Re: No progress part I

I have never been sure this combination is even correct. The idea is very simple, but the details are reallly extremely complicated.

Re: I got the permission by Steen Surrballe (Gandalf) ...

Gandalf 7 does not work on my computer (Windows 10 64bit) with the ChessBase GUI - it terminates instantly with an exception.

Did anyone experience the same and was able to solve the problem?

Re: Best Computer Chess Program

4. normally I would never reply to a Sean Evans post, so please don't expect more on this - it was really better when you stayed away from the main forum, just throwing enormous amounts of mud into the CTF crowd, as uncle timbo, for probably 20 years... This is quite untrue. :) Sean Evans hasn't be...

Re: Crafty v25.2 Release

Really - how about documenting things like MAJOR changes at least ;) ? After I finally managed to get one of these binaries running on my computer I noticed that there obviously have been some changes that should be explained IMHO.

Re: TCEC stage 3 , New Houdini starts with a bang

You have to realize that these situations happen ALL THE TIME in engine tournaments. They just go unnoticed often. I attended 3 WCCCs as an operator. Each year I observed unexpected situations that demanded a judgement by an official. Some I agreed to, some I didn't. E.g. Crafty-Shredder Ramat-Gan 1...
