Re: AnMon 'archeology'

The asterisk at the end of the address did not get included in the link. Try this: https://web.archive.org/web/*/http://wbec-ridderkerk.nl:80/html/download/anmon/* Thanks, the auto-detection of the link fails here. Haven't used the url tags for a long time, because it's not necessary usually.

The 4CPU version is weaker than the 1 CPU one ?

Re: AnMon 'archeology'

An example with AnMon 4.24 (1999-06!) vs. Abrok 5.0 (2003-05) No problem for this 20 years old AnMon version in CuteChess with a predefined opening PGN. Four years younger Abrok could win though from a bad position with very active play. [Event "Oldies-CuteChess GUI"] [Site "RWBC Win7U-64 Q8200 2.33...
