Good idea. I will try that. I believe I have some old Juniors in some drawer.
Nevertheless, my point is no just to get an entertainning engine, I already have Tal which is very much fun, BUT the GUI.
I am not thinking in just the beauty and colourful features of CM, though I like that, BUT in extra services that to date no program has delivered.
I had an idea that once I delivered in full detail to a programmer just to be said it was too difficult to implement.
Now i do not have the time, the stamina, the will etc to do it again.
I just wait my idea, written long ago, will be met by another guy sooner or later and then putted to work

waiting as Godot regards

BTW, just reading fopr the second time the great book by Peter Heather, "The Fall of tjhe Roman Empire". I contacted Heather by mail and we have had a nice conversation. He is at two weeks of publishing kind of , he said to me, a continuation of the book I aforemetioned. The issue is how Rome was governed after 476 Ad and /or how the imperial idea was intended to be revived fist by Theodoric and his ostrogoths, then by Justinian, then by Charles the great and so on, until the Popes came in ...
I will purchse it for certain, but no kindle format. I still prefer paper.
Respect the game you mention I will give it a try.

Spata and Pylum regards

Sure I will buy that too. Lucky you speaking with Peter Heather. I will be very interested especially about Justinian, the last Latin speaking Roman Emperor, his reconquest, Belisarius, Narses, the Civil Law. If not for the plague that hit the Eastern Roman Empire, maybe he would have managed much more.

And I would enjoy having an affair with Justinian's wife, Theodora. Beautiful, shrewd woman, who started as a dancer (if not prostitute), and ended as a reigning regent to a huge Empire.

Ensis falcata regards,

Kai

Then, Kai, If you like Teodora you must read Secret History by Procopius,. very lascivious information for people like us, at the same time scholarly and lubricious.

Testudo regards

Do you or anyone know if ChessPro/Tiger by Christophe Theron is available for other mobile devices? (I don't have an Ipad).

Thanks,

Hi Carl,

As Fernando mentioned Christophe does have ChessPro for Iphone and I think Palm as well as Ipad. he has unfortunately not put it out on the Android platform.

I would love to see a new Chesstiger on PC as well! But it does seem like he is targeting mobile devices. And to reiterate I LOVE this APP!

Attractive GUI without being ostentatious.

LOTS of training levels.

ATTRACTIVE playing style.

Great options for learning while you play or go over one of your own games. Fairly interactive in this regard!

STRONG enough! When I double check with Houdini only rarely does Houdini refute the Chesstiger moves!

And instructive because of its style!

This is the app I play with and use to go over my games.
Hi Tom,

Did you unlock the 2700 Elo function in this application !?

Hey Dr. D!

No I didn't know that was possible. Do you mean for sparring partner?
Is it a level that one has to attain to unlock it?

Thanks!

Dr.Wael uses the free version of the app and needs to unlock certain features not available in the full version.

This is well said, Fern.
At best I was a club player (rougly 1600 at best), and these 3000+ programs are just hard to relate to. It's not just elo that would make me open my wallet, especially in this economy. I do like the chessmaster series also.
