News:

  • Read PGN file, now support the selection of multiple files (unknown)
  • Challenge 101: new game to the beginning. It is about solving up to 10 positions of all types, with assigning a score. The program saves the last 10 scores, and you can check the ones made from the Training menu/Personal training.

    "increment minutes"

    "zeitnot alarm"

    I played in 3 second each move and I didn't get any increment.

    (if you want the translation of what's written in french in the first picture it's :
    "total minute" "increment"
    "increment minutes"
    "zeitnot alarm" )

    1. 1. Image = you have 6 minutes(5 and 1=increment minutes) and the engine 5 minutes. -> 2.Image


      Field Increment = seconds added per move

      3+2=
      Total minute= 3
      Increment= 2
      Increment minutes=0

      Delete
  5. I finally understood. As you can see in the picture "Increment minutes" didn't work (it doesn't add 1 minute each move as you can see on the third picture) . But now that I use only "increment" it works.

    I thought that increment meant "at what move do the increment kick in"...

    thanks a lot !
