Reading through all postings I am not sure anymore what is really intended with developing this new GUI.

1st goal: Developing a new modern and truly user friendly chess graphical user interface? Of course, a fine thing regarding all existing but being buggy resp. NOT really user friendly interfaces. But why then this naming "Rybka GUI"?

or

2nd goal: Indeed developing a true Rybka GUI. But what should the specific features be relating to Rybka engine?

I'm a little bit confused and wish to learn more about Convekta's goals.
Thank you.

Convekta has wanted to develop a playing GUI for some time, and it has been on the drawing board for some years. Now they have a very strong engine that can be used to drive and pay for development. This is a long and interesting story - I will let Convekta tell it if they want.

Convekta is still learning about marketing. I think that Rybka GUI is not the best choice, but it is descriptive at least. It is possible that a new name will be chosen before it goes up for sale. I like Fishwife 2000 Turbo myself ;-)

Hi Bob,

Thank you for replying.

Developing a playing GUI? And Chess Assistant 9 ?? I don't understand. Why a new developing line besides CA?  :-o

All I know is that the desire has been there - it is not mine to question why.... Also, I don't view this as an entirely new development, since many of the components come from both CA and Convekta's playing zone program.

IMO, there is a class of players that simply will not purchase a database, since it is too serious a product. A playing program is easier to sell, and lower cost as well.

Hmm, i have not tryed the Rybka GUI but i think it needs the scores... like +0.65 or -0.68. I.d.k. I use Fritz interface, and Rybka 2.2 is best on it. No doubt!!!! Hey and Vasik, which would you recommend for blitz games???
