Hi Vas,

yes but wait a little bit of Arena programmer Martin Blume!

If Martin try to add the ICS support wishes for UCI engines (different wishes
can you see in our support forum) he must fix in combination an other UCI
problem too and this need a little bit time. You can visit from time to time
Arena Support Forum for information about new versions of Arena. Next week comes
a new version with bugfixes for Autoplayer mode.


We search since over one year persons which give us more information about the
ICS support from Arena. At the moment the support is very good but I am sure
with more information we can make it better. For WinBoard Engines the most
programmers prefer WinBoard and after all my information WinBoard for ICS mode
is working near to perfect.
