Because there was no such version available, you downloaded it from a hacker site and it sent your credit card data to russia. But don't worry, they are nice persons.The 100 Pizzas are on their way to you and they ordered a lifetime Rybka cluster access for you.

Enjoy :lol:

Quest,
a chess engine by Frans Morsch which became the famous ChessBase engine dubbed Fritz in 1991. Later, Quest was often used as experimental version of Fritz in tournaments. Quest was the strongest chess program at Aegon 1996 [1].

But I don't think this program from Frans Morsch was ever released to the public or offered for sale, or I am sure it would have been tested in tournaments etc. Quest with Frans Morsch did partipate in several of the earlier Dutch championships, in the eighties I think, possibly also in the ICCA tournaments but there I think Frans Morsch always played with the commercial version or an experimental Fritz, not under the name Quest. I hope you did not pay too much for it? I could find no mention of this Experimental 3.1 engine in Google either, at least until now. Does it not play like the other Fritz engines? Where have you found it John?

Hello !

STASI :roll: knows that this " never seen " CB GmbH Hamburg product can be downloaded from the (im)mortal host server ( being with 2 hours before Bucharest hour , this server is somewhere around Moskovskaia Oblast , maybe even a bit to East). In fact you can find there only the download address..
You need an account for access the commercial section. This section is like a Playboy (US Edition) number. "C'est-à-dire" very interesting !
Well , Ruxy can't help you because I was banned , months ago , in all Kama Sutra positions in this forum. Persona non grata in Latin ! But they are a lot of CCC members who can help you !

Respect & regards,
SilvianR :wink:

The program you mentioned became Fritz 4 on time...
And F4 with all the frills, gui, etc you can find very cheap in lot of sites.
It is called "Extreme" by some of the publishers...

What Fernando said I think is correct, I purchased "Extreme Chess" about 14 years ago, and it looks like you can still buy for about it $5-$10 if you look around.
Be warned though that it is a 16-bit program and probably won't run on computer systems with Windows XP or higher (unless of course you can figure out a way to get it to work).


Here is an image of the CDROM case:
