What? No talk of Houdini 1.5 on the Rybka forum ?

Maybe we should let them know their hero has fallen ? As how will the troops carry on once they know their general is dead!

it's still 'unmentionable' (actually more than that) -- i proved this to myself very quickly just by mentioning that such an engine existed (without naming it). the post was gone in minutes. i have 'publically' asked them to change this policy but gotten no reply from any moderators.

Just to show you what kind of people are Vasik and his followers....
Anyway,Rybka is a history now,it took about 5 years of dominancy but finally went down in flames....

Where exactly is that subforum? I have looked everywhere on the Bugka forum, there is no such thing... Is this just another BS among others Bugka supporters are trying to convince people of ?

I do not have access there so two questions:

1. is there a possibility for me to read the original and
2. What is the general opinion about the 100 Elo increase form R3 to H1.5?

Thanks
Ingo

Are you saying Houdini 1.5 is Rybka ? How much did you have to drink for the Christmas party tonight. :lol: :lol:
