Re: Komodo 1.2 update available

Is there a way to get your Komodo official bin book to work within chessbase programs (Fritz)? Thanks. I don't understand your question. Do you mean (a) you cannot use Komodos book under a CB GUI, or do you mean (b) you cannot use Komodos book for _other_ chess programs under a CB GUI? (a) works of...

Sean Evans wrote:Hi,

Question for you, was M-Chess ever released as a UCI engine I can use in a different front-end GUI, like Winboard or Chessbase?

I use to own M-Chess 5.0 and it was a DOS program.

Thank you,

This is a very bad example, because it only shows the 256 moves limit

Re: This is why I love Junior

Junior did not have a chance, had it not been for Fire's hardware unstability. When your engine restarts something like 3-4 times in a row, due to too much overclock. You are doomed to lose the game... Another issue is the book. I heared that Fire played with no book at all. And who's fault is that...

Re: Anand new Fide #1?

I hadn't seen any information on this however I'm assuming it's true since he gained +47 against Topalov. That would take him to an outlandish 2834! Close to Kasparov's all time high.
