>Hi! Does anyone here know any WB engine that supports fischer random chess (wild fr)?

WinBoard itself doesn't currently support FR engines, and it can't load PGN FR games. It will get very confused by FR castling, which is very different from standard castling. See the ToDo file for more information. It works to play FR on a chess server, as long as you type in castling moves instead of making them on the board with the mouse.

The protocol spec *does* say how FR should work. Elsewhere in this thread someone said that the Arena GUI supports FR. If that's correct, presumably someone could write an engine that supports FR and use it with Arena.
