In my behalf I can say that I still does not play at full trothle with it, as ever happens when you begin to probe an engine, because you just play a little bit shallow and fast to see what happenes. I could see as you how supicious his moves are, BUT to defeat them you need a more slow, careful play. I am sure -???- I will win it IF I play my best....

Full of hopes regards

I loaded arena 3.5.1 with opental. set level to 1 sec /move. (above picosend/move I have no chance. ) moved p k4 with white. It did not respond. loaded stockfish and moved almost straight away.

what should I be doing to get opental to work ?

(I like the idea of chess software thinking I know you are useless and am going to march straight to your king and mating and am going to safely sacrifice a piece in the process )

Code: Select all

I loaded arena 3.5.1 with opental. set level to 1 sec /move. (above picosend/move I have no chance. ) moved p k4 with white. It did not respond. loaded stockfish and moved almost straight away. 
Which operating system are you using?

Also, the OpenTal distribution contains three different .exe files. Try opening each of them. A black window should appear. Type "bench" and see which one responds. Use that one.
