Hi Werner,

Komodo's uci command parser functions normally in Linux version. i.e you can type commands in cli window and see output/reply.
Windows compile does not allow typing in cli window. I hacked the earlier v1.0 version to allow this, but didn't this time.
I don't think this affects use in chess guis (except Shredder).
Komodo has a big problem with the Shredder gui. It is not recognized as uci engine at all .

Jim.

Thanks Jim.

After installing komodo-11-32-ja.exe in Arena, I have a question, probably best answered by Don.

I notice there is not a "personalityFile" option in the UCI configuration window. Does this new version not use personalities? Strange, as there is a sample.per file included with the download, as well as a personality.README.txt file.

Regards

Hi Dave,

I bundled the sample.per file with the download without checking.
Don must have removed this option with the new version.

Komodo has always been a bit incompatible with the Shredder GUI.

Hi,
just discussed this via email and got the answer: all is ok in Shredder GUI

ponder setting is different in Shredder (extras engines pb)
hash setting is an extra setting in Shredder too (extras engines hash)
multi PV works in Shredder too with F5 and F6
own book setting in Shredder is not in engine options too (use engine book)

... and the engine loads here ok in Shredder GUI!
Werner
