If you want a better program at a lower price with support try Chess Position Trainer.

Not sure about this since Chess Position Trainer doesn't look very active either. Has anyone in the US tried ringing Mike to see if everything is ok?

He answered my e-mail promptly, so if you have an issue or question, try that.

Mike has said that the only sure way to contact him is to post a comment here. He generally tosses his mail because he receives so much junk.

CPT doesn't see much action because it has fewer bugs. The only bug I have found in several months of constant usage was a design choice. If you want to see a lot of action stay with Mike, there will always be plenty of bugs to be fixed.

Does anyone have the ALT key not working in build 181?
I reverted to 176 and it is fine.

UPDATE - typo, I meant 'reverted to 167'

also, this is still an issue in build 183,
so I went back to 167 again

The Alt key issue is a known problem with the latest versions. The makers of Delphi (my dev environment) are working on it.

The latest version restores sanity to the Alt key shortcuts. Thanks for your patience!

Being here rather rarely, I can just hope my question to be at the right place, if not, please move it there, dear moderators.

Latest Professional- version from yesterday (build 197) has output of engine in multiPV=3- modus, can that be changed to single primary again too? Tried UCI- parameter MultIPV=1 in engine's preferences (Startup Commands), which didn't work.

Is analysis of exported .epd- files now run in multiPV- mode also?
MultiPV=3 slows down analysis of .epd- positions quite badly. Guess, I'd rather downgrade my version, if there isn't any workaround to choose single primary variant too, at least for .epd- backwarding, regards

Could anybody give a link to download last but one Professional version (build 196), please?

Don't have it stored anymore and need to downgrade from 197, MultiPV=3 is way too hardware- time consuming for me for analysis of databases and even for .epd- files bigger then 100 positions out of opening and early midgame.
If I wanted MultiPV- mode I could already get it by Startup Command
setoption name MultiPV value x
. Couldn't at least MultiPV value 1 be set to work again in next version?
Till then I'd prefer not to use build 197, regards
