Re: A typical sacrifice for Comet A90

Both Comet A90 & ZChess 2.00 are Legatus Augusti of Computer Chess Imperium ! :lol:
Hard to find something similar in our days. Houdinello Futurello the 3-rd is a sort of Cassius Clay not a Velasquez ! :lol: Sorry, Robby !
O tempora !

OK, I dig ZChess 2.0 ;) -- glad you posted about it, since most likely I would have looked at the later ZChess 2.22, if at all.

As for Comet, I only have B68 and other B-versions. I looked for Comet A90 everywhere on the 'net and I cannot find it anywhere :-(

(Nice sac, btw) :o

James I, that's simply awesome! I usually have no luck with the Wayback Machine.

Thank you, sir! 8-)

Cheers,

Sorry, Carl ! :roll:

........for my delay, of course ! Usually when you posting I am in the sleeping procedure (or something similar). :lol:

No needs of wayback express ! They are Mr.Norbert's compilations:

and some others.

Like a good news - soon will be available a speedy and enhanced version of Comet A90 !

Have a nice Sunday !

Thanks, Ruxy -- is this a different compile than the A90 from the WbM?
The file size seems about the same. I could not download it because the site linked in your last post is too slow and times out the connection. If it's the same file, then I won't bother.

I've noticed that while Comet A90 plays without problems in Arena, as UCI, it will crash and give an error when trying to load it in CB/Fritz.

Regards,
CL
