How to continue pruning trees on SF 8

Is there a way to prune trees further on SF 8?

I know that Chess 960 is already at 3500 ELO for SF 8.

The internet is 20 years old and that information is slowly receding.

How to get SF 8 to work on Arena 3.5.1?

I am able to work SF 7 on Arena 3.5.1, but what about SF 8?
I use "Demo" to start a game, but sometimes it does not work.
Please offer some advice.

Re: Thoughts about the movie "Queen of Katwe"

I did see the movie 2 weeks ago in the theatre (not YouTube). This Disney movie is about a Ugandan girl who learns chess from a missionary man. The man gives porridge everyday to the children as an incentive to learn chess. Phiona is her name and she rises from the slums of Katwe. At one point in th...
