Now I hope to have made the installation routine a little bit more intelligent. Please report your experiences with the updated installation routine and GUI. Thank you!

I am still waiting for (+) or (-) reactions after exploring the new SMIRF installation package. It really would be fine to hear anything about successes or failures ... thank you !

Hi Martyjn, thank you for your message! The SMIRF GUI is my first working chess GUI. Thus I am gathering a lot of experiences. Drag and drop will be in my next approach for this. Actually I am not sure to continue development with Borland Studio, because C++ yet is only supported half compared to Delphi. Nevertheless there will be some smaller improvements of the current SMIRF GUI and engine.

Regards, Reinhard.

There of course is again a new version of the SMIRF engine BC-164a, despite of the contest's ending.

Best regards, Reinhard.

The GUI now released with the new version 164c has a reduced board flickering (as I hope) and also shows a material balance.

The GUI has been released now in version 1.5.1 which:

a) has reduced flickering while drawing board
b) has scalable GUI (one bigger piece symbol set added)
c) will show material balance (last position)

SMIRF is migrating to Mac OS X. The web pages have been closed. Maybe there will be a comeback in far days.

Best regards and a happy new year 2007, Reinhard.

P.S.: see also notes at: http://www.chessvariants.org/index/external.php?itemid=SMIRF

For some reasons and e.g. maybe to get some testing results of other 10x8 activists I have decided to publish again an actual donationware version of the SMIRF GUI and its engine BC-176f-2 which also may by used by Winboard-F in combination to HGM's smirfoglot adapter.
