Re: Bobby Fischer Meets Bob Hope -- Hilarious!

Bobby Fischer dropped out of high school at 10th grade. His mom should have said to him that "knowledge is power". My former family doctor said to my brother (who had straight A's in high school and college) that "knowledge is power". I will never forget that ever. Chess has become a war veteran gam...

Does DOSBOX accept Mephisto Genius 3?

To computer chess community,
Does any Dosbox accept Mephisto Genius 3 by Richard Lang?

Genius 2 works fine with Dosbox 0.74.
Rich Lang's website only has Genius 3.

I will store my Genius 2 on a CD-ROM just in case this computer breaks.

Any suggestion to create Genius 3?

Chess in the year 2020. What are your accurate predictions?

As a humble chessplayer, a lot has changed in the last 35 years. What do you think will happen in the year 2020? One prediction is that 3 or 5 grandmasters will join to find a way to beat Stockfish on a fast hardware. GM's will have the white pieces if possible. Another prediction is that the cloud ...

Re: How to put SF 6 on Arena 3.5?

Thank you Vincent anyways.
On replace/add engine there is the alphabet up top except for the letters M and Z. If I click the letter S (as in superman), previous SF downloads appear.


You would think the scroll bar would work but it doesn't.
Live and learn,

How to put SF 6 on Arena 3.5?

I already know zip 7 because I can decompress SF 6.
How do you install SF 6 onto Arena 3.5?
SF 6 is just doing nothing except let the clock go down to zero.

I am too lazy to remember the details since I do this once a year with SF.
Thanks in advance,
Jonathan Lee

Add Chest to the elite software chess engines (good or bad?)

Since Komodo has an attacking style with better results, why not have Chest use and combine with the elite chess engines?

Dpes anyone think maximum efficiency in software is the way to go here?

I like to see 100's of games by GM's before beating SF5

To chess community:
I would like to see GM's play lots of games against latest Stockfish or Houdini in order to beat it at least once.

Please use the latest hardware like a quad core.

A little bit of Chest with the softwares

To chess community:
Maybe a little of Chest to find those unlikely checkmates on the latest softwares would add rating points to them.

What do you think (with long time controls and/or fast computers)?

Good question: What % improvement is hardware vs. software?

To the chess community: What percent improvement is it for hardware and software? Together they make 100 percent. Assume hardware goes from 1 Megahertz (late 1970's) to 2 Gigahertz (today). If you wish, opening and endgame databases are optional. What percent is databases approximately as a 3rd vari...

Precisely what percent tactics and position

To CCC: Is chess (90% tactics and 10% position) or (99% tactics and 1% position) or (something else more or less)? This is for the chess programmers to decide this precise answer. In addition, if position was improved to almost perfect (like tactics) how many rating points higher would it go on ELO?...
