No.. :( I'd like to have included Phalanx updates, but Dusan has changed Phalanx's output format, and i didnt get around to adapting the changes for the "Computer - Phalanx" feature.

Hi, we could not find out yet which Phalanx revision broke this. Now with the most recent revision in sourceforge [r103] it records almost all of the engine-gui communication, so perpaps this will help ...

Ok, Understand. I asked because i suspected you Phalanx version was adapted and if I include new version I will end broking some scid vs PC feartures by using Phalanx.

No problem at all. I enjoy both, scid vs PC and Phalanx very much, as they are :)
