Zarkov 6.55 & KnightX 1.98

I like both engines...
Is there any way to make them NOT resign?
I tried to put resign=off, resign=0, setresign off in .ini files, but that does not work for both engines....

Thanks..

The program is hardcoded to resign. No alternative.
There are some positions where the resignation is not obvious for a human player.
I will add an option in a future release. Maybe a resign threshold.

Thank you Christophe
I like your engine!
I test it with other engines (some of them are old) and it is one of my favorites.
I think its a good idea to have the option Not resign and play yntil the end..

Thank you!
