Post by Pvt. Ryan »

Hi all. Can anyone provide the download link for Tao 5.7? I can find v5.6 but not v5.7. Cheers.

Hello Wilhelm,

I guess you renamed the binary to 5.79 in the download folder?
IIRC the Tao versions for 5.7 were private ones e.g. playing at Leos Ridderkerk tournaments.
(verified by some wayback search now)

Those versions were named Tao 5.7 b0 - b7 (b for beta).

I would like to know which beta version it is exactly?

The output is identical to an old output snippet from Bryan Hofman here:

Hello Wilhelm,

No, I didn't rename it, could be beta 9. I can't remember from where I get it. Maybe from my CEGT time or from Leo or from Frank. Sorry, to long ago :(
In a small test it was around 35 elo stronger than 5.6 but not realy enough games.

I checked old Ridderkerk and ChessWar meanwhile and there never was a version after Tao 5.7 b07 playing, so for now I will
remain with that version naming in my chronology.
(as it started with b0, b7 would be already the eighth beta version, but there is no sign of a later one)

Hi Wilhelm. Are you able to upload the file to another server? My work laptop doesn't seem to like the 'mega' site. Thank you.
