Sorry for the late replay.

I have a shared Dropbox folder, where you can download the Damage GUI, and the Horizon Engine.
As Im now busy to debug the additional functionality, you cant (most likely) download these applications.
As soon I have uploaded some files for testing, I will let you know.

An older version is available through my (old) website: http://members.chello.nl/h.tuyt/

As you know Damage GUI has a mistake about which You know. He will make available new versions without the mistake.

Hi!!

Thank's for the reply.
I've downloaded Damage 2000 beta from: http://members.chello.nl/h.tuyt/
It work's fine on a 32 bits pc.
I played 2 quick matches at a rate of 3 sec/move against a comercial program (who's name i prefer not to mention).
Results: 2 confortable draws.
Very good for a beta version with 10 years old! :D
I guess that you manage to get a new fan of your work. Keep it up!
Can't wait to see the development.

As I shared in a previous post I will upgrade the current Damage GUI towards the Damage 2016 version, which will support the Hub and Guide protocol.
I will share a link (when available) where you can access Scan 2.0 (with a Hub interface towards the Damage GUI), and Horizon 4.5 (with a Guide interface).
Next to that I will also add the 6P DB for both Scan as Horizon 4.5.

Keep in mind that Horizon is a quite buggy implementation, and not so strong as Scan, Kingsrow, Damage and Dragon.
The Damage version (Engine 12.6) as I used during the 2015 ICGA Tournament is in strength comparable with Kingsrow and Dragon (according my own tests).
But weaker compared with Scan, so as I already shared many times, Fabien did really a briljant job, my deepest respect, and the program deserves the first place.

I'm not sure if I will continue the Horizon 4.x engine development (which was based upon the evolution function of Feike).
I rather focus on Machine Learning and further development of the Damage Engine.

Hi Bert

Thank very much for all these precisions. We hope now that Damage will be tested by us. Not doubt that it's strong, the dxpgames prove it. Thank again

Kindly, Sidiki.
