The Spacious-Mind Active game results (shown above) are from games played with a Commodore 64 or 128. Playing MASTERCHESS with an Emulator should play exactly the same as using a Commodore 64 or 128.

The game example below originates from the C64 Open Championship and was played with a real Commodore 64 or 128 and original MASTERCHESS software, however the Emulator Software should play exactly as the original game.
