xboard vs eboard by John Swartz
I'm looking to compile Crafty on OS X and wondering if I should use xboard or eboard for a GUI. If anyone has tried them both (either under OS X or other Unix variants), I appreciate their comments as to preferences/bugs/features/etc. John

Shootout from a prearrange position by drummerman
How can you set up Fritz 8 to play two engines against each other from a prearranged position? I can play two engines against each other using engine vs engine. This, however, is from the start of a game. Shootout seem to use just one engine when playing a prearranged position. I must be overlooking something. Any help would be appreciated.

remis.ctg by Leonardo Ljubicic
Remis.ctg does not allow editing of probability of a move be played? This way many popular openings are never played. Can anyone shed some light? Is there a way to make probability of move to be played equal to the percentage of the times it has been played? Thanks.

Where are annotated, instructional PGN games? by Gandalfling

Shredder 8 is much faster by Euc1id
Shredder 8 is much faster compared to Shredder 7.04. About 6x faster in my tests. I'm not talking about kN/s. They're very similar in that regard. But the Shredder 8 engine gets to the same search depth about 6x faster than the Shredder 704 engine. For example with a particular position it took Shredder 704 about 6 hours to arrive at the 21/50 search depth, but only about 1 hour for Shredder...

Chessmaster 9000 - The King a CPU hog? by Gregory Topov
I find that whenever I am in the "Game Room" part of Chessmaster 9000, "The King" engine hogs all my CPU. (in WinXP I can monitor this using the "Processes" tab of Windows Task Manager). If I'm in any other part of Chessmaster (unless playing a game of course), this doesn't happen. It's understandable that it would do this if it's analyzing a game, but why should the engine hog the CPU if I'm...

New ChessBase? by Marcel Alsemgeest
Hi everyone, I am thinking of buying ChessBase 8.0, but since it is some years old already, I'm wondering if a new version might be released soon. I've heard some vague rumours about a ChessBase 9.0, but I can't find anything about that on the internet. Does anyone in this newsgroup know if a ChessBase 9.0 will appear soon, or not? Regards,

CM9K - Big Diff between Win Me and XP by Mark
A while back I was curious to see what CM9K rating my Chess Tiger Palm device was playing at using various levels for CTiger. Example: after a number of games, CTiger (set to move instantly) rated about 1450 vs CM. (CM9K running on 850 mhz pentium III). I recently upgraded my desktop from Windows Me to XP Home and CM9K. This made my desktop perform more smoothly, so I thought I would check...

Playing Chess Engines Against One Another by Grahame Booth
I am totally new to the concept of playing different programs against one another, so am looking for some tips. I own Chessmaster9000 which has the capability of importing other chess engines as a profile and then play Chessmaster against the other engines. Last night I setup a game between Chessmaster and Crafty19.08. Since this has caught my interest, is there some guidelines on how this...
