E.T.Chess - DOS Version

By Eric Triki

I have stopped the development of the DOS version of E.T.Chess in 2001. It plays around 2100 Elo at blitz time control. That is to say it is strong enough, I hope, to put you in trouble and to make you progress. The graphical inteface of E.T.Chess is simple and easy to use.

E.T.Chess' style :

I tried hard to give this program a human and pleasant playing style. The algorithms used are for a large part completely original. Some are worst than others so don't be surprised if E.T.Chess misses one "obvious" combination or even one simple mate.
However E.T.Chess turned out to be a tough opponent and its playing style has already appealed to some very strong players.
