Re: MadChess 1.2 Released

I've managed to add another 100+ ELO to MadChess. I estimate MadChess' playing strength is 2090 ELO at bullet time control. At blitz, I estimate its strength is 2140 ELO. The strength improvement is mostly due to more efficient move generation and an improved principal variation search algorithm. T...

Re: Ultimate Definition Of Getting Screwed By Chessbase!

George, isn't there an option to deactivate the old copy? What happens if you do this and then activate the new one? I have not considered that. Once I did update the other and I didn't particularly like something that came with it, and I wanted to go back from like "27" to "26" and I could not see...

Re: Ultimate Definition Of Getting Screwed By Chessbase!

That is surprising, usually Fritz installation works fine and only asks for activation if you want to run the Fritz engine in the GUI. Since the Fritz engine is not that strong all you have to do is install another stronger UCI engine. As for activation, I think that has more to do with Playchess a...

Re: Ultimate Definition Of Getting Screwed By Chessbase!

I try to always speak correctly, so I want to modify my above thread. The patch will not activate it, but it will allow me to UPDATE the gui to the lastest update available. And that is all I care about.

I anybody used the "group connections" switch, the output is better. I addition, I fixed a recent bug in the simulations (thanks Michel), so I fi...

Re: Ultimate Definition Of Getting Screwed By Chessbase!

What happens George if you choose File-Activate-Update Program ? Therein lies the problem. Activate is a must before you can update. It won't let me activate because it says the serial number is being used. Which is correct. On only one machine. The one just like it- sitting right next to it. So it...

Re: Ultimate Definition Of Getting Screwed By Chessbase!

Fritz 13 is sold with the membership to Playchess, that makes you have that kind of control. I think for your use, no need to activate. (not Playchess, ect) If it works, all right, You know you're legal. Anyone can install it on a computer without Internet, there can not be controlled. If it works,...
