Re: New release: rofChade 2.1

Just noticed this post containing some issues regarding PyChess can't install rofChade.

option name SyzygyProbeDepth type spin default default 0 min 0 max 127

Re: Chess for Android: FICS client in alpha

Unfortunately FICS (and ICC also) is slowly dying as it loses users to more modern chess servers. Just take a look at https://www.ficsgames.org/stats.html year by year. I myself playing on lichess.org in latest years. It's getting better and better because it is open source and developed actively at...

Re: You lost to a cheater

Carlsen played a cheater on C24 banter blitz. He was suspicious when it ended, but moved on casually. "What can I say, they played very well for for hes rating (2100)".
