After the previous game, I turned up the strength of the Interactive Diagram to its maximum value of 4 ply and ran another game against Zillions-of-Games at 1 sec/move. I let the ID move first again. The game lasted longer, but Zillions-of-Games still won. Since Zillions-of-Games works with number of seconds instead of number of ply, I assume it fits in as many ply as it can calculate in the time it takes, and this may vary with the power of the computer. While my current computer is over a decade old, it is still considerably faster than the Windows 95 computer I had when I first got Zillions-of-Games.
