Re: Could someone do a Demolito compile please ?

Tirsa's compile was used to test it here: http://ccrl.chessdom.com/ccrl/404FRC/ It seems Tirsa did not announce it openly in the CCRL forum. Will this compilation be available for all users? Sure, I'll post it in the CCRL Public forum. http://kirill-kryukov.com/chess/discussion-board/viewtopic.php?...
