ZILLION of Chess Engines
Rebel-Tiger II strongly supports the Winboard chess engine protocol. It allows you to
load many strong external chess engine within Rebel-Tiger II.
As most of these external chess engines are free downloadable you can add even more power
and flexibility to Rebel-Tiger II.
The most popular free chess engine is Crafty by Robert Hyatt but you can also add
commercial engines such as Nimzo, SOS and Gandalf to Rebel-Tiger II.
It is estimated that at the moment there are about 50 Winboard compatible chess engines
available all downloadable for free. For more details we like to point to "Frank's Chess Page"
(see picture below) who greatly has pushed the popularity of Winboard compatible chess engines.
DOWNLOAD and INSTALLATION
For the moment we like to point out to the documentation as found on the Lokasoft site our
partner company who is in charge for the REBEL-TIGER interface.
- More Winboard support.
- Offer Winboard engines without the need to go through the often difficult installation
- Add new software that for instance allows you to play long matches between all installed
chess engines (including the Rebel engines).
CREDITS and LINKS
The WINBOARD protocol was invented by Tim Mann to allow chess programmers not to
bother about Graphical Interface issues but to focus on the chess engine strength only.
A big thanks goes to Tim for his pioneer work.
