This is the successor of Umko 1.2 rated 2655 in the IPON. To get a Top 20 position it has to reach 2679 or better.

Have fun

For several reasons but here is one:

If I would like to test a Litto I go for a free and stronger one. I am not willing to pay money for something without any improvement!

Actually I don't understand anyone who pays money for that. To ask 10€ extra for something they call HEM (Hig End Machine :lol:) which is nothing else than a POPCNT/SSE42 compile is a joke in itself. This engine is worth exactly nothing!

The best thing with it is its Web site! Perfect. I see that as an example how a web site should look like (Maybe too much bells and wisthles already). Another thing which is good by them is the marketing. They convinced people to buy something (and to think they have something special!) which they could get completly for free! The talk about "playing human like" is a stroke of a genius. Something noone can control but if you want to see it, you see it! (Even Apple is not able to do that - and they are really good in tempting people!) Actually, I think this concept only works within the completly crazy computer chess comunity and some of their demented members! (Ups, I haven't made new friends now :evil:)

On the other hand, the originlal Litto was partly in italian, now some italiens try to earn money with it. Mabye they realized what its worth and want to have a piece of the cake. Who knows.

You are wrong, It is strong and plays nice. I mean 1.11c_HEM version.

It is not stronger than a few free Ivanhoes and for the rest see the part I wrote about marketing. It works, people believe it and defend it (To think your spend money is well invested is normal). Actually you proved my point. :-)
