Thanks for updates ;)
I have been playing Wolve a lot lately. It's very strong on grid sizes 11 and smaller. It's performance tends to degrade on sizes 13 and 14, but it's still fun to play. A session report is at http://boardgamegeek.com/article/6514079 I wish for better documentation, though. Apparently the shell window that appears when an engine is attached provides a way to change its parameters, such as how long it takes per move or how deep or broad its search should be. But I found no file that explains how to do any of this. The default settings for MoHex make it play very quickly, so I haven't seen it at its best, although it's supposed to be stronger than Wolve. The HexGui app provides a very classy virtual board to play on.
