As promised some weeks ago a FREE Hiarcs 7.01 update is now available to
existing Hiarcs 7.0 CD-ROM PC owners from the HIARCS home page:

Please note this update is initially for PC owners only.

This is the first of many free updates for our existing Hiarcs 7.0 CD-ROM

It includes the following improvements and new features:

o Deep search: A special deep search selectivity option will be available
  specifically for correspondence chess and overnight analysis.
  Search Selectivity 6 and 7 are introduced with this version.
  WARNING: Testing indicates the deep search selectivities of 6 and 7
  are 50+ Elo weaker at tournament chess and faster time controls.
  However, overnight analysis appears to be improved, hence this feature is
  aimed at correspondence chess and overnight analysis of difficult positions
  requiring a deeper more selective search.

o Chess engine overall nearly 2% faster (averaged over P200MMX and PPro200).

o The Swedish language is now supported by this version. Many thanks to
  Jan Nystrom and Karl Gaard for the translations.  HIARCS now supports
  English, German, Spanish, French and Swedish languages!

o My seven year old son, Steven, has produced a new piece set for Hiarcs -
  we think you'll really like them!

o The Tasc Smartboard is now supported by this version.

o By popular demand the days left to refuel are displayable together with the
  option to refuel now from the HIARCS 7.0 CD-ROM. The refuel period has also
  been extended!

o This version has the Dell extended memory problem fix. The -l option.

o Extra shortcut keys have been added. There are now shortcuts for Flip Board
  and Search Selectivity.

o HIARCS executable slightly smaller for improved memory efficiency.

We hope all our customers enjoy this new update version.

Best wishes,
