By the way: Is Sapeli 1.36-1.37 Windows anywhere available for download?

Note, however, that this tourney will not be on FICS (freechess.nl), and that you cannot automatically create an account on the ICS where the tourney is (winboard.nl), but have to PM me your e-mail address (and desired account name) so that I can create one.
Well received. PM sent.

Re: Capablanca Random Chess engines.

I'm currently writing a capablanca/gothic/caparandom engine. In ruby language. The only ruby engine that supports caparandom?! A special code for 10x8 board. Board size can be modified easily. As if Stockfish clones start invading you can increase board. Movegenenerator + search is done. Xboard pro...

Re: Capablanca Random Chess engines.

Hello! There are also ArcBishop80 and BigLion80.

I am myself writing an engine supporting Capablanca random variant, but it's far to be finished, and it certainly will never be strong. For me it is already an accomplishment to manage to make an engine that works properly. :)
