Thanks....

What do you mean by disappointing :!: :?:

Does it make unsound moves leading to quick disaster or it's just too weak comparing to nowadays programs :!: :?:

too weak for me. and i'm a patzer ;)

it feels even weaker than my fathers 1988 Novag Alto which has ridiculous slow hardware

but maybe it's because of the emulator. i don't know...

watch that. take a look at the counting of nodes. If it goes too slowly, then there is the problem. Also you can see how many ply he go ahead in one or two minutes.
