I know ProDeo and Rodent have a lot of options. Chessmaster did, and Shredder up to version 11 used too. Just want to see if there are others that I may have missed?

Thanks!

Movei has a lot of options to change parameters by editing some file of changes from the default magic numbers.

Are personalities considered more advanced wrappers to get levels out of the engine than just levels? Pulsar Chess Engine has 8 level and i know chess for android has like 10 levels.

Greko 2015 ML has 8 parameters that can configure various personalities as attacks, defense, positional etc...

I have a chess engine that I play against that has 32 personalities. It is an engine that is now freeware that use to be commercial. All the personalities are from versions of this engine over the years. They were never all available in one version. I put them all in one version and created my own drop down menu to select the one I want to play against. You could do this , The engine is Rebel Century UCI available at rebel 13 NL ...
