ChessGUI celebrates Jubilee !!

Post by Matthias Gemuh » Wed Aug 01, 2007 12:28 pm

ChessGUI started off with version 0.001 ! Now the current version is 0.050. If 50 doesn't mean jubilee, then what else ?

BTW: Win9x shall be supported only if ChessGUI grows beyond privateware. I personally use Win2000Pro. Who can tell me if ChessGUI runs on WinXP or WinVista ?

If you search well, you may find ChessGUI here : http://www.gemuh.com

Cheers,
Matthias.

Hi Matthias,
Who can tell me if ChessGUI runs on WinXP or WinVista ?
It runs on XP fine.

I was really surprised when I loaded up the latest version just how much it has improved since the earlier versions.
It's become an excellent chess gui. I urge others to try it out and I wish you every success! :D

As long as ChessGUI is still at alpha stage, always completely delete old version before updating ! This means having to re-install engines ;(
This may change when beta stage is reached.

I tried to use it, but it was a pain in the ass. You install an engine, then it disappear, you try to move a pce and nothing happens, etc.
Something goes wrong there...

My best

Sounds like you did not delete a previous version, or you skipped reading readme file, or you aborted engine installation by avoiding that "Install one or more engines" button. Are you running WinVista ?
