Re: My review of Strelka Code

Or have you seen it? Brian Hofmann has compared the Rybka and Strelka codes as stated in the thread starte...

Re: The Warrior And The Ogre (Final Standings)

Great performance by Loop 13.6 :) Hiarcs 11.1 is not easy to beat.... Agreed on both counts! 8-) I was tempted to replay the Twisted Logic 0.087x5 games using the latest 0.099x version, but having already updated so many others during the tournament and replaying their games (including Twisted Logi...

Re: Strelka again

Personally, I'm not quite sure why accusations that something is a clone (without any foundation) and besmirching someone's reputation doesn't get you at least a temporary ban from this board. If that happened, perhaps people would think twice before making such claims I am pleased there is now a t...
