Re: Prestige Chess Computer

Hi Lonnie, What I plan on doing with the connection type is the following: I have the old power supply and the 2 hole plug that plugs into the power supply cable on the Prestige which has 2 male round leads. Since I know the female side of the power supply that does not work anymore I can cut off sa...

Re: Prestige Chess Computer

Hi,

Yes the power supply. Yes I am going to see if I can match the specs and make this work. I will do some research and see if I can find a company who makes a series of these power supplies, thx for answering Lonnie.

Prestige Chess Computer

I am a proud owner of the Prestige Chess Computer which I purchased back in 1981. I just found out the transforme (power supply) no longer works. Can someone recommend where I may go to find another one or an equivalent. I would deeply appreciate any help you can give me.

Thanks Les

Re: Man verses machine

I just looked at these outputs and here are some interesting things: SInce the same engine was used to analyze all 4 positions then 2 of the positions should have a positive ce and the other 2 should have a negative ce. Following is what I see: P1a Bxg4 29:25 20,358,116,736 +0.43 P1b Bxb4 53:32 38,6...

Re: Man verses machine

Hi Dann,

Just got in and saw your analyses of the 4 positions, any chance you have the full output or atleast the amount of time spent to find the move?

Thx

Re: Man verses machine

Hi Dann, Although this analysis took some time do you think this may be a good position to try this on??? You know what I mean, just a thought. Just got home from work <S> If anyone can try running these 4 positions under same conditions I would be very interested in its output of the analyses. [d]r...

Once again thank you,

Re: Question about 2 variables in the pgn output file for TC

Hi Mark, I am aware of the purposes of the other variables but am only interested in what the ev= and wv= in the file. I realize the wv is not included in this file but the ev= is. How do you explain why the sign is the same whether its black or white to move? Look at move 200 and after, the sign ne...

Re: Question about 2 variables in the pgn output file for TC

Hi, I know there is no wv= in this particular file but the ev= are present. I thought there was no reason to include the other file once someone can offer me an explanation for the file I did include. What are your thoughts about the sign not changing with the ev? Look at around move 200 for the sig...
