read also the file "About Arena".
We have a long time (start of this webpages) 4 partner programs. For every
partner engine a red letter.


You can read the red letters (= AreS) and you have the theme from our Arena

Now we have a new partner program (Ruffian) and I have not a red letter for
Ruffian :-)

So I wrote AreS in Ruffian logo ...
Perola have also a wunderful logo, available in our logo collection!

I think a nice idea for make later a little bit publicity with our wonderful
partner engines for people which find also the way to computer chess in the
future. Maybe not the best English in the message in our News Ticker. If you
have interest to make a correction please write me a short mail. I am very happy
if people write me if my English is not good enough.

I have a permission to added Ruffian in Arena Setup file if the engine ready for
take off.

Look UCI / WB Dragon 4.3 ...
Also a partner program and today available on the webpage by Leo Dijksman. The
same for Ruffian. If Leo have the realeased version from Perola Valfridsson he
added the engine on his webpage. Not to do with Arena ... we added the engine as
soon as possible in our setup files.

See my other messages ...
Thanks for your interest on Arena News Ticker!
