Tytan was buggy and runs out of time, hence it was replaced by Zarkov.

Are you sure Gosu plays with its 'data' folder (contains its weight files)?

Hi Guenther,

The latest version of Gosu (0.16) always makes strange blunders. The only other file that came with it is book.dat.

Do you know where I can download a package that includes all the necessary files to make it work right?

That would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Carl

Hi Carl,

Well you should have looked into my XB/UCI chronology first :)

Thanks, Guenther. I had the same issue as that person, and I put them in the newly created folder and it appears to do just fine. Now, I'm rerunning the games of Gosu.
