The Spacious-Mind Active game results (shown above) are from games played with a Commodore 64 or 128. Game Software was loaded from a PC into a Commodore 64/128 using C64TPC. C64TPC connects a Commodore 64 or 128 via the Disk Drive Port and links to the PC with a Serial Cable. Playing KEMPELEN with an Emulator should play exactly the same as using a Commodore 64 or 128.

Chess Game Examples

The game example below originates from the C64 Open Championship and was played with a real Commodore 64 or 128 with software loaded using C64TPC.
