Re: benchmark new smartphones:

Re: Chess System Tal vs Ferret Fantasy Game!

unfortunately Bruce Moreland cannot be contacted under his former email-address. This engine from the year 1995 had its own GUI and was made for e.g. win32, but one thing seems to be a mystery: Is it compatible to WinBoard (CECP)-protocol and -if yes- which command line parameters are required to r...
