World's Strongest Chess Engines - Team Olympiad!

This is the biggest project I've had on my slate and it took weeks just to figure out how to run it!

The olympiad event, beginning sometime today will consist of 14 teams with 4 engines each team and single round-robin.

The specs...

Arena 3.0 GUI
Time Control 5 + 3
Perfect 2011.abk
Custom pairings (required)
No tablebases.

When I learn how to make an image from an excel file, I'll show you the teams, and the engines on each team. If someone could tell me, I'll get it up much quicker.

Innovation.

I created 56 separate tournament files with only the first round of each being played.

The easier alternative was to simply do 4 round robins, but I wanted round-by-round results of each board, rather than wait until the end.

Well, thanks for telling me. Now I have to start all over again!

And there won't be as many Ippolit-based engines either!
