To run ProDeo you will need to announce the engine first, under Chessbase this means:
Engine -> New UCI engine -> Browse -> RebelUCI.exe
Under ChessPartner do:
Extra -> Engine Import Wizard -> Winboard engines -> Install -> ProDeo.exe
Engines -> Install new engine -> RebelUCI.exe
1. Some Interfaces (like Arena) when launched won't load the current engine until it is
commanded something to do, no worries, Editpad will show up as soon the engine is
2. Like ProDeo 2.3, 2.4, 2.5, 2.6, 2.7 this is a new feature version only, no changes to
the engine itself.
3. Because of all the maintenance of the text files the engine might even lose some elo points in strength.
