Mephisto Phoenix: First update to version 4.01A available

We’ve been working hard for the last few months – not only on the first update for your Phoenix, but also on collecting feedback, looking at ways to implement new features, and last but not least, on an update and server structure to provide you with regular updates in the future.

With this update you get the following new features:

Tablebases support for Komodo 14.5, Stockfish 15 and Komodo Dragon 3:
For this we have installed the popular Syzygy endgame databases on the Phoenix. You can activate them in the chess settings of the above mentioned engines. This makes the Phoenix the first commercial chess computer ever to allow the use of tablebases.

Extension of the emulator for many more chess computer emulations:
We have adapted the emulator in the “Play Retro Chess” mode of the Phoenix so that you can now install several other emulations on your own. All you need is the correct ROM files.
Information on this subject will be released by Millennium.
