You know I was thinking that with the broadcast feature you have Build into Banksia GUI, you could probably setup a Banksia TV page on your website to display games that are in progress and that are being braodcasted. This might drive even more traffic to your website for those who are interested in computer chess as well as human versus computer matches. Just a thought. 8-)

PS: Might be even more useful if you had a chat window included for online game discussion.

Feature Request:

- Allow human player/s in engine tournaments.

- Change font size of engine output.

Much appreciated, especially the first one. :wink:

I have been working on that. However, it is harder than my first glance (maybe delay).

BTW, how can I get the live PGN links of TCEC? Thanks!

Wow, good news, thanks! I guess your network cards refused crossover. IFAIK, not every network card can work with crossover cables.
