Re: Trend by commercial authors!

I have never regretted purchasing Hiarcs as it does have great and different analysis. However, I have yet to purchase the new chess explorer because I am waiting for one feature to be added. Mark always makes great and reliable software. And the Chess Explorer GUI looks awesome but without this on...

Re: My favorite chess apps for android

No one has mentioned Chess for Android by Aart Bik, it's an excellent app and let's you plug in multiple chess engnies! Don I have had my Droid Incredible for almost two months now and have tried six of the chess apps that are on the android market. Before I give my thoughts on them I must say that...

Re: Trend by commercial authors!

Of late I see a change in the way a commercial engine is publicized. There are a few steps that happen prior the release of a new engine. 1.

Re: Aquarium?

Thanks Tom, that page would've been very hard to get at, otherwise. Wonder why... Regards, Carl You are most definitely welcome! :) YEah the ChessOk site is not the most inviting site for finding products.

Re: Aquarium?

Hi everyone, Does anyone know if it's possible to buy Aquarium by itself (without having to repurchase an engine all over again) ? The ChessOk site has Aquarium bundled with either Rybka4 or Houdini2. Thanks, Carl This is the closest you can get: http://chessok.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_...

Re: review of the new hiarcs explorer

Hello folks, I thought i would offer my first impressions of Hiarcs explorer. I use a Mac so as you might imagine, I have been rather desperate for good chess products. Just to put this in context, I have used Shredder (MAC), Rybka Aquirium (PC), chessbase (PC), sigma (pc?), and arena (PC). My main...

Re: Komodo - Hiarcs : Timing

Hello, I was just thinking that Larry and Don did very nice choosing the timing for Komodo 5 release. We were all waiting "Available soon 14" soon :D :roll: I guess now that "Available soon 14" will be delayed again ... soon :wink: Cheers, Gab As I've said before, our timing is based mostly on our ...
