Vincent, what happened to your projects for Diep?
Did I miss something?
I would like to see a UCI version to run in my fast comp.

Ruxy, I will nominate you for a medal as the most friendly guy in this land.
Nevertheless....
what I wan is to get last Diep, not read sites...
I have a floppy disk with one of the first Diep versions, but is about 1993 or so, a really museum piece...I do not even know if I can install it again....

Maybe you have something to send by upload???

Many years ago, when Gambitsoft still existed. Vincent had a free version available that came with its own GUI. I had it for the longest time but cannot find it anymore. I wonder if Vincent would release that version again. Although, it may have be DOS, therefore, rendering it useless to most of us. But I am still curious.

A pity. If a more recent Diep was half as good as Vincent comments suggest when he talk of his work, we would have a marvel here.

Almost surely, I dare to say, Vincent has a "private" UCI version of Diep and of recent elaboration.
If so, he is committing the worst sin to this community: to keep a private engine out of our hands.
God forbid it...
