ProDeo 2.3 will inform you what the computer is plotting against you, give you powerful advices, warn you when you make a questionable move, give you insight in the positional aspects of the board position.

It's hardwired at 1 second currently else 1) the quality becomes too good :wink: and 2) increasing the time to say 10 seconds and thus waiting for 10 seconds soon becomes annoying, hence my choice for 1 second for a smooth proceding of the game.

Well, it's working - http://www.top-5000.nl/pers.html

Even without a program change.

Thanks Pawel.

Wow! Big thanks to my two favorite programmers. :wink: :wink: 8-) :D

Time for some Rodent Personality vs Prodeo Personality Team Matches. Cool

It would be nice to be able to set the time and font size. I hope we can use this assistant against other engines with different styles. I think this is a very important training tool. I am going to experiment this with my daughter's students and my son. This looks like a promising idea.

Had to substitute "no popcount" sf7.exe in both SF71 & SF72 sub-directories due to my old CPU, but seems to work fine that way.
Just sharing the trick...
Kind regards, Eric
Makes me wonder how you did this, the BUDDY version doesn't function as it should with orginal SF releases, it needs some extra code to communicate with ProDeo.

Excellent website you have created.
Very interesting and much to see and discover.

I bought all Rebel's from version 6 to 12 and want to return to past wonderful years now.

Thanks Ed.

I have already made a few personalities, but had no idea what some of those switches do! :lol:
