Exactly.. my compile crashed... there was only one exe...probably is popcount....There is another version of Crafty 25.3
floating around..That one (nonpopcnt) works very well... :lol: :wink:

This is good news. I'm assuming that the new version of Crafty is still Winboard compatible and can still be imported into Chessmaster 10/11?

There has been no change with respect to GUI compatibility, if it worked previously, it will still work.

So far, I think there's only a 64-bit compile of version 25.3, which will not work in Chessmaster 10. I don't know if it will work in Chessmaster 11. If someone makes a 32-bit compile, then it should work in Chessmaster 10 and 11. In any case, you'll probably want to also download the crafty.rc file (the configuration file) and learn how to edit it with a text editor like Notepad.

Thanks for this precise advice. I'm currently using CM 10, but I've got CM 11 coming in the mail from France (I'm in Australia). I'll try to install the new 64-bit Crafty in CM 11 when it arrives and post the results.

Where do I find a list of available Crafty executables anyway?

Bob's university account is no longer.
90% of coding is debugging, the other 10% is writing bugs.
