Re: CM11 settings testing - Nightfire added

I wonder if there is any appetite for ONE of the strongest CM10 settings to be tested under these conditions No, not really. Keep those new personalities coming, I would like to pick the best personality to include in my rating list. Next up is Glorfindel at selectivity 14. This should give some in...

Re: Best tactics?

Is there a clear leader among top engines in terms of tactical ability? I tried some of the best on several (20-30) really hard positions and have found Rybka WinFinder to be really quick in finding solutions.

Hi Graham,

My English is too bad :oops: for this.
