DAS KOMPLETTE SCHACH-PROGRAMM
"Das komplette Schach-programm" was developed with the intention of taking chess programming into a new direction. It is designed not only for the beginner, who would like to play against an appropriate chess partner, but also for the hobby player, who wants to systematically increase his play strength and become acquainted with the reasons behind the play. Also, the advanced amateur, who would like to sharpen his training on combinations, finds an instructor, with an ideal game interference with many options in the open structure of the program.
In the "Spielen" (Play) section, heavy emphasis is made on opening variations that can be practiced, by allowing the player to study the opening library that is available on the disk. In the program section " Trainieren" (Training) short lessons are available to the user, as well as stored diagram test positions all created to increase your chess knowledge, in all three stages of the game -- Opening, middle and endgame.
The program plays strictly according to the international chess rules, possesses a problem solving function, which solves up to mate-in-nine chess problems. A “Save Game” is also available and the program recognizes and names the twenty most important chess openings.
The handbook is arranged into three chapters. Chapter A introduces the beginner to the rules of chess. Chapter B describes how the program is started, and chapter C describes the contents and menu options of the program. The key assignment chart at the end of the chapter " Spielmodus" and " Editor" provide a fast guide to all the different functions of the game.
