A loyal reader of Chess & Cognac recently asked me related to chess engine:
Can you make a quick video how to configure personalities in rebel chess engine?
I appreciate each and every reader this blog gets and will do my utmost to help you guys out with anything chess-wise you’re struggling with, and so for that reason…
I made some time and got to making the requested video. 😎
Rebel/Prodeo happens to be one of my favourite chess engines anyway (I reviewed it here) because it is strong, but also has a human-like and aggressive playing style.
Collecting personalities (a personality is a collection of settings for a chess engine that influence its playing style. By the way. Prodeo has an awesome Tal personality which is great for training games) for Prodeo and configuring them is a tedious task although worth it, but I have decided to take away the tedium by doing the following.
What I did for you awesome chess engine readers. 😉
- Zipped up my own Prodeo chess engine folders as they are.
- Uploaded and made them available for download.
- Made a video showing how to install and configure them.
I know I know… No need to flatter me guys!
You’re welcome! 😆
Just download the engines, install them and have some fun.
I recommend the following personalities.
Prodeo 1.7 – Storm
Prodeo 1.7 – Q3 Tactical Engine
Prodeo 1.6 – ALEXAL
Prodeo 1.6 – MACHEID
Prodeo 2.0 – Tal
Prodeo 2.0 – MACHEID
Prodeo 2.0 – ALEXAL
These are personally my favorite personalities, but there are HEAPS (you’ll see 😉 ) and if you like positional opponents, why not try the Karpov personality?
