well, there is a way : buy a Revelation Module from Phoenix Chess System and you will be able to play PC engines from your exclusive board....

It is a way, but a very expensive 

For the price of a Revelation module, you can buy many Citrines! 


best regards,
Robert

Robert,
Thanks for the advice. Excuse my stubbornness but is there no way to create an interface ?

Is it possible to upgrade the machine in any way ? It would be great if I could have an interface between my laptop with a modern chess program like Stockfish and Mephisto as a user interface.

No, this is not possible, as the Exclusive board has no interface that supports connection to a PC.

You would have to buy another board like the DGT-board or the Novag Citrine (a chess computer, which is for example supported by Arena)


regards,
Robert

Since 1992 a have a Mephisto Risc Exclusive machine and I like it a lot but compared to recent computer programs like Rybka it is relatively weak.
