Re: How to set MultiPV under Fritz?

The only way I can see is by editing the corresponding .uci file. These are typically stored under C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\ChessBase\Engines.UCI\ . You'll need to add the "[Options]" section if it's not present already, followed by the MultiPV entry, e.g. [ENGINE] Name=Stockfish 9 64 POP...

Re: Why does Lets Check" in Fritz sometimes just show "New Engine"?

Let's Check recognizes only SF, Houdini, Komodo, Shredder, Fire, Gull, Rybka and the various Fritzes. Everything else, including SF derivatives like asmFish, Brainfish and SuGaR, shows up as "New Engine". The name recognition scheme seems to be based on straightforward string comparison.

Re: New release: rofChade 2.1
