i believe if there someone found very good idea(Let's say about +40 ELO or more) he will make a new engine based on the original source and will close it (Closed source).
Sentinel has not been able to contribute for the last year and a half, or so, (since 1.31), Too busy too busy with work, etc.
Peterpan is part of the team, along with some beta testers...
other than that..it's just me. If you know of a good programmer that wants to help...please let me know.
yes, there is a risk that someone will use the source code for their own 'closed source' engine...(a la Houdini), but the same goes for IvanHoe?
anyway, I have a question for you...
would you be willing to make a Fire 2.1 compile?
if so, it would greatly appreciated.
- and about Houdini, the engine is the strongest now and this guy is doing his best. and as all engines authors, he has his own dreams and i respect that, i wish all the best to all engines authors and to any hard work!.
- and about me, i am enjoy with chess play now its more fun (and is the main goal of all this) so i wonder why all this war between chess programmers and even between books authors, Is there enjoyment in that ? i do not think so
this is my message to all chess fans "The chess game is fun! If you aren't having fun, then why do it ?" and this is the main goal of Chess2U.
Well said, Ahmed! :sm98:
