Welcome to Files !

Files is a place from where you can download chess engines and programs, games, bases as well the other files.

The necessary tools are also there.

To access Files, simply click the Files link on the navigation bar at the top of the page.

After a while a new window will be displayed - you are in the Files place :)

Usage is very simple and resembles working with files on a computer. In addition to browsing and downloading, you can also use the file search engine.

I have included all the necessary information in the files...

  • Files Help.pdf

  • Welcome to Files.pdf

...which are always visible on the first page of Files.

In addition to games and bases (for example from MCERL), chess engines and programs will appear in Files.

My goal is to make chess engines and programs available to the community using various devices.

For example, if chess engine is not available in the Linux version, then I compile it (assuming, of course, that the source code allows it).

In addition to the most common architectures such as x86-64 (Linux, Mac, Windows), I create compilations for ARM64 (Linux) and Apple Silicon (modern Macs), which are increasingly numerous and popular among computer chess enthusiasts.

My compilation environment is always the currently supported operating systems along with the necessary tools (compiler, etc.) and updates.

Below I have included the most important information about Files:

  • All available files are safe and virus-free. All files have been checked with antivirus programs before being placed on the server.

  • Files are stored in Google server space, which itself contains antivirus software that has also checked the files before they are made available.

  • No commercial files or pirated software. In compliance with applicable licenses, e.g. GNU GPL, MIT, Apache, etc.

  • The majority of chess engines were compiled - by Darius - the owner and creator of Exception: chess engines compilations hosted with the permission of the author(s).

  • Files are archived in widespread Zip, 7-Zip or Tar format supported by the most commonly used operating systems. If you need a tool to unpack archive or PDF viewer, there are programs dedicated to Linux, Mac, and Windows in the Tools directory.
