How to get Rybka vs Houdini to play more than 6 games?

I own license to Deep Rybka 4, I downloaded Houdini 1.5 from the internet.

I open the engine match dialog, and I tell it to play a 50 game match, with a blitz time control, from a certain position, yadda yadda.

But it stops after 6 games!

What gives?

Maybe they agreed the match drawn Wink

Which GUI? In Arena there are no such issues.

It's the Rybka GUI. It looks a little bit like a Chessbase-designed wrapper on Rybka, but I can't say for sure.

Try Arena, it's really good. Not having Rybka myself.

Alcohol may be needed.

The chessbase UCI wrapper has a few issues.

OK Thanks.

Yes, I think this is a ChessBase UCI wrapper issue. It runs 6 games, even if I say to run just 2.

Sorry. I had to offer a draw.

FYI, this problem was worked around.

If I edit the number of games to be played directly, then the value is not used. But if I use the up arrow/down arrows to edit the number, the correct value is used.

Good times.
