Chessbase compatible engines

Chessbase announced UCI engine support in Chessbase for Android too. Great news!

I have packaged some chess engines in Chessbase compatible format so that they are directly available in that application. I will also release a new version of Chess for Android that supports this format to keep the chess ecosystem complete.

Simply download and install the Engines.apk (no need to run the app). The package is also available from Google Play.

For now, the package only contains BikJump versions, but any chess author that wants to be included is welcome to drop me an email with permission to include the binary in that APK.
