Re: Elements of the ULTIMATE Chess GUI?

It wasn't until HGM told me to search for xboard, did I realize there was portable equivalent. But thank you for reaching out. I have since downloaded and compiled xboard to play around with it a little more. I figured i'd risk telling you something you may allready know as it may be useful for oth...

Re: Does every engine have to be stockfish?

It's a good point. I find myself using Houdini more for game analysis lately. Stockfish tends to give more unstable evals, maybe that's better and it really is more accurate. Houdini seems a little slower but less noisy, and it is still tactically pretty acute. That is just my unscientific impressi...

Re: Chess for Android: version 6.1.1

The reason given for being restrictive towards alternative clients is that part of the cheat detection for lichess resides in the lichess client itself. Completely understand...
