  3. bug with v8.09 after so many moves playing against the chess engines (20?) clicking on a piece intermittently causes the piece to float above the board and essentially stops the game. I've found this to be a problem with carlsen champion, toga and toyota with critter as the tutor,

    1. I need the contents of the file bug.log in the folder of the program, this may help me, since I have not been able to replicate the problem on my computer.

  4. Hello there,

    Was testing your prog as I am planning to create Youtube-videos with your prog as the interface. There is a small problem though as I was not able to set sounds on? Any suggestions?

    Greetings Jani

    1. Hi,
      If you want sounds, better way is to assign custom sounds from Options, for instance, add ding.wav to "After rival move".
