Novag Dynamic 'S' (1984)
  • SET LEVEL BUTTON -- Choose play strength
  • TIME CONTROL BUTTON -- Choose time control

The NOVAG DYNAMIC “S” has 8 play levels in which the level 1 is the weakest and level 8 is the strongest. A further option which plays a factor in the search depth of the computer is the “Time Control” as explained below. The higher the play level the longer it takes for the computer to make a move but the computer will analyze the position and the moves in more depth which will influence the strength of his reply.

The NOVAG DYNAMIC “S” also uses your move time and continues to analyze positions while you ponder your next move (this is also called “Permanent Brain”).

In addition to the 8 play levels, the computer also has 2 time control options available for use in which variable or fixed response times can be set up. If the variable option is used the computer will move more quickly in simple game situations but it will also use more time in more complex positions. The levels 7 and 8 will be used for analysis or the solving of special chess problems.

If the fixed option is used, the computer will make it’s move only after the time allocated by the level choice is used. In the fixed option the levels 6, 7 and 8 are tournament play levels.
