Post by Alibaba » Thu May 23, 2013 9:08 am

Hi guys,

lately i asked Marty what's if there is any Progress with Mchess UCI....here the Response:

Hi Andi,



I still think it will happen. I remain involved with a number of other projects but it will settle down sooner or later, and then I will do this.




Best Regards,




Marty

Hi Marty,



another year has gone, some people asked me a few weeks ago if marty has given it up with Mchess UCI.

Could we still hope to see a comeback of Mchess as a UCI engine?



Best Regards

Andi

Google does not throw up any details about Mchess. Can you throw some light on it and if its free, maybe a link to d/l?

TIA

Appreciate you contacting Marty for us Andreas. I think now more than ever is a perfect time to introduce a multi-core MChess UCI engine in it's original human fighting style as compared to the universal style of the engines we have now.

Strength is a mute point now. Style and features. I know for a fact of some GM's on ICC that don't like playing Chess Tiger 2007 because it just has their number. Now that's another program I would like to see updated with it's style and SMP capable as well. Chess System Tal & WChess come to mind too.

Hi Andreas,
thanks for asking again.
I have tried this too during the last years and always got similar answers - but no MChess UCI.
I even asked him to give an unprotected Version free (e.g. for Eds site). Here is the answer:

". Unfortunately, due to changes in technology I cannot create a non-protected version of MChess (or a protected version of MChess) at this time. I have put some time into re-writing the program for modern compilers but there is more to be done. "

So I think we will have to wait till Marty retires from work and has more time for this Project :)

Hi Werner,

It's good to know Marty may well resurrect MChess.

However, I would point out you've published his email address on a public website. Was that intentional? Did he give you permission to do so? I certainly wouldn't want my email address on an open post? I'd suggest deleting the post.

The Email is the Old Email Adress Mchess always used to have.

He's had that one for at least 17 years that I know of and it is public knowledge but I see the point about posting it on public forum.
