I don't - yet. OTOH it is early and I would hope it will be delivered today. Of course the computer I run my tournaments on has crashed quite nicely creating a bit of a mess for me since it will not shut down now. I think a dll has been corrupted; I will probably try a repair with the WinXP disc and maybe Registry Fix before taking it in to someone who knows what he is doing.

Hello David,
I'm sorry but I've had several problems this morning and the program that should have sent automatically all the emails didn't work properly. I'm sending them manually right now.

Hi,
we still wait for the engine for our tests too!
Hope it will soon arrive.

Patience is a virtue. :)

Hi,

yes, I got if for seconds.
Very interesting documention

Example:
About all UCI commands!
Program worked fine in textmode too.
Documentation included too.

All is fine, should be test now :-)
x64 and w32.

But I closed my SWCR. Working on my Todo list only before SWCR ended completely.

Best
Frank
I like computer chess!

I've sent Chiron to several persons. I'll continue tomorrow since it's rather late here. Sorry for the delay.

Many Thanks. I have a question already.

From Configuration Commands.pdf
bench: runs the Chiron Benchmark using the current settings.

I wanted to check out the bench command, but it appears to do nothing. ?

Regards
Dave

I've just tested the exe I sent you and the benchmark works correctly.
The benchmark has no search output but there is a progress bar. On my 1090T it takes about 2'30" to complete.

I very much hope to get my copy soon (like tonight since it's almost 12am Oct 10 where I am). I'm so anxious to start using the engine.
