Chessmaster 10th Edition requires the game CD to be present in the CD drive in order to run.5. Chessmaster 10th Edition needs up to 20 MB of free hard drive space to run smoothly, due to audio requirements. Along with the needs of other Windows applications that may be running, along with the requirements of Windows' swap file, we recommend having at least 30 MB free hard drive space on the drive where you installed Chessmaster 10th Edition before launching the program.6. We strongly recommend to not install Chessmaster into your system's "Windows" folder or in any partition's root (ex: directly on C: or D:).7. For users of Windows XP or Windows 2000: to install Chessmaster, you must have administrator privileges on your computer system. Otherwise, the installation will fail.8. If you're using the minimal installation, Chessmaster will usually ask you to insert the CDs for needed files. If your CD/DVD-ROM is low speed, please wait for the drive to initialize before clicking on the Retry button.8. For low performance computers, we strongly recommend to set up your desktop on the 800x600 resolution, 16 bits, and to select "2D boards only" in the Settings program which appears upon the 1st execution of Chessmaster 10th Edition. You can also find the Settings program in Chessmaster's menu from Windows's Start / Programs menus.9. The Chessmaster 10th Edition CDs contain an electronic version of the Chessmaster 10th Edition manual in PDF format, in the "Manual" folder of the CD. This file was also copied to your hard drive, in the target folder that you selected for installing Chessmaster 10th Edition. This file's format can be read by the Adobe Acrobat Reader program, and the installation for the Acrobat Reader program is also contained in the "Manual" folder of CD #2. Assuming that you have installed the Adobe Acrobat Reader, you can access the online manual from within Chessmaster 10th Edition at any time by pressing F1.10. Compatibility IssuesChessmaster 10th Edition was tested on a wide range of CPUs, as well as over different 30 video cards and over a dozen different sound cards. Following are some of the hardware incompatibilities you may experience:-- On NVidia GeForce 4 MX 440, when the user starts a game and changes Antialiasing to 1x and switches the Stereo 3D feature ON, the game crashes.11. DriversTo avoid any compatibility problems, always update your graphic card drivers to the most recently available versions.For GeForce cards, go to . The latest drivers available at the moment of writing were 56.72 for Windows 2000/XP and 56.64 for Windows 98/ME.For Radeon cards, go to . The latest drivers available at the moment of writing were Catalyst 4.5 for Windows 2000/XP and Catalyst 4.3 for Windows 98/ME.The game was tested successfully on the following card/driver combinations:NVIDIA GeForce2 Ultra - 52.16NVIDIA Geforce 3 - 53.04NVIDIA GeForce 3 TI 200 - GeForce4 MX 440 - 56.64ATI Radeon 8500 - Catalyst 4.3 (Win98/Me), Catalyst 4.4 (Win2k/XP)ATI Radeon 9000 - Catalyst 4.3 (Win98/Me), Catalyst 4.4 (Win2k/XP)ATI Radeon 9000 PRO - Catalyst 4.2ATI Radeon 9600 - Catalyst 4.2=====================================================================III. *** Late Breaking Changes to the Documentation ***The following features were omitted from the Chessmaster manual. They are explained here in detail.1. The Mentor Lines and Visual Thinking features were omitted from the manual. Here's how they work:To use Visual Thinking, choose the Windows/Visual Thinking menu command. Watch the chessboard dynamically update asCHESSMASTER considers its best line. You can use the VCR controls to move back and forth in the display.To pause and resume Visual Thinking, use the Hold and Resume buttons.Visual Thinking is only available in the Training and Set-Up Position game modes.To use Mentor Lines, choose the Mentor/Mentor Lines command. Watch the window dynamically update as CHESSMASTER considers its best line. The display will show:a. The time CHESSMASTER takes to predict the movesb. The number of moves (depth) that CHESSMASTER is thinking aboutc. The material and positional advantage (score) that would result if all the moves are played out as predicted by CHESSMASTERNote: A positive score means that White is winning, and a negative number means Black is winning.Briefly speaking, this window allows you to see "running commentary" by Chessmaster about the position of the current game. This commentary will run indefinitely, until the status of the current game is changed, at which point the commentary will begin again with the new position of the current game. When opened, this window automatically launches a "mentor" engine instance to watch the game. This will, like the Visual Thinking Window, take up as much CPU time as a computer personality that is actually playing the game. The data that is displayed in this window is identical in content and layout to the Thinking Lines window. The "Best Lines" control of this window allows you to view this data in two different ways. If you select 1 (one) best move to be shown, then the window will show the single best move "over time". In other words, as the Chessmaster engine searches deeper, the most recent "best move" will be replaced by a newer one AT THE BOTTOM OF THE LIST. This is very important to remember -- if "Best Moves" equals one, then the best move is always at the BOTTOM of the list. If "Best Moves" is greater than one, then the Mentor Lines window will show a number of lines equal to the number of best moves that you have asked for. These moves will be sorted by score FROM THE TOP DOWN. So, if "Best Moves" is greater than one, then the best move is always at the TOP of the list.Mentor Lines is only available in the Training and Set-Up Position game modes.2. The AI personalities rating displayed in the Set Up Personality window is the base rating for that player. The actual rating (displayed in the Select Personality window) is affected by the power of your CPU, so differences might exist.3. In Tournament mode, games can't be saved individually. After the tournament ends, all the games in that tournament can be saved as a big PGN file.4. The BMP format recognized by the Wallpaper feature is 256 colors or more. Also, the preview pane of the "File Open" window will display only a part of the larger bitmap wallpapers.5. Chessmaster 10th Edition includes support for Endgame Databases, which are files that can tell Chessmaster exactly how to play any ending that has few enough pieces on the board. Chessmaster 10th Edition automatically installs all 4-man endgame database (note that the two kings are always included in the total number of pieces, or "men", on the board). If you chose to install the endgame database as well, then several of the most useful 5-man files were also installed on your computer. The Chessmaster personality, and all Grandmaster personalities, will automatically use the endgame databases for play, much in the same way that an opening book is used. None of the other computer personalities that ship with the game will use the endgame databases, but any personality that you create can use them if you select the "Endgame Databases" option in the "Set Up Personality" dialog. Additionally, the "Advice" tab of the "Current Situation Report" window will show additional data if the current position of the game has few enough pieces. For example, if one side in the current game has a King and a Queen, and the other side has a King and a Rook, the Coach window will show all of the legal moves for the current position, and how many moves it is to checkmate or draw for each of them.[to verify this] For more information about Endgame Databases, including the tool which will allow you to generate the complete set of 5-man (and even 6-man!) database files, just go to The Engine Preferences dialog, which is only available in Training Mode via "Preferences -> Engine", contains two settings for certain mentor features. "Mentor Transposition Table Memory" lets you modify how much memory Chessmaster will allocate whenever a mentor engine instance is launched. Mentor engine features include: Advice, Game Analysis, Quick Hint, Solve for Mate, and the Visual Thinking and Mentor Lines windows. Note that using too high a setting here can cause your computer to slow down considerably, if you tell it to allocate more memory than is currently available on your computer. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that you do not use more than 32 MB of memory unless you are comfortable that your computer is able to successfully handle larger values. Note that if you change this value, it will not take affect until a new mentor engine is launched. The "Blunder Alert Threshold" setting allows you to specify the sensitivity at which the "Blunder Alert" feature will notify you that you have made a potentially bad move. The LOWER the value, the MORE LIKELY that you will receive an alert. Basically, this value is equal to the number of points of material (or positional considerations) you are likely to lose due to your last move. So, if you raise the value to its maximum of 3.0, then you will only be notified if you make a blunder that loses a piece.7. The "Playback Move" menu item, available in most game modes, plays back the audio for the most recently made move in the game. This feature is intended for those who are playing a game blindfolded, or are visually impaired. This menu item also is activated by pressing CTRL+V.8. There is a "Copy Contents" feature available via right-clicking on either the Thinking Lines or the Mentor Lines window. Simply put, selecting this menu item will copy the contents of this window to the Windows clipboard.9. The Tournament game mode contains a menu group under the "Actions" menu called "Adjudicate". These menu items allow you to declare the result of a tournament game (White Wins, Black Wins or Draw) between two computer personalities without having to wait for the game to finish.The following clarifications to Chessmaster 10th Edition features and/or modifications of features took place after the manual was completed:1. While the Chessmaster Development and Quality Assurance teams have done their outmost to ensure that Chessmaster 10th Edition is as free of bugs as possible, there is a statistical likelihood that some bugs have made it through all rigorous testing procedures only to be found by YOU. Unfortunately, every once in a while a bug can cause a program to "crash", shutting it down immediately. Because Chessmaster 10th Edition now uses the Winboard protocol for all of its chess engines, these engines are actually SEPARATE programs that constantly communicate with the Chessmaster main program. While Chessmaster automatically closes all the King instances upon crashing, there are still very rare instances when these engine processes may still be running "in the background," and may still be churning away on the current game, taking up your computer's memory and CPU time. The only way to shut these engines down is to access the Windows Task Manager (usually by pressing CTRL-ALT-DEL) and looking for the name of the chess engine program that is still running. Chessmaster 10th Edition's engine is called "TheKing". You would then highlight any entry in the program list that is called "TheKing", and press the "End Task" button. Also, if you happen to close Chessmaster by using the Windows Task Manager, be aware that the King's engine will NOT be removed automatically. You have to look for any entry in the program list that is called "TheKing", and press the "End Task" button.2. If you are concerned about optimizing the performance of the Chessmaster engine, be sure to follow these guidelines:-- Run as few other programs as possible while you are running Chessmaster.-- Use as few child windows as possible. Some of these windows (most notably Chess Coach, Mentor Lines, Thinking Lines and Visual Thinking) can take up a decent amount of CPU time due to either their visual updates or because they might cause a mentor engine instance to be launched.-- Do not activate the Blunder Alert feature in the Training Mode. This feature will also launch a mentor engine instance to watch your game.-- Do not switch to other game modes, or access other game features or dialogs while running a game, and try to avoid adjusting game settings (such as the players or the time control) in the middle of a game. Some of these features/dialogs will actually restart any chess engines that may be associated with the current game, causing any memory that these engines has allocated (used to "look ahead," among other things) to be destroyed. This, of course, will lower the quality of play.-- In the "Piece Movement" tab of the Sound dialog, select "No Sounds." This will prevent the program from taking up a significant portion of time queuing up and playing piece movement sounds.-- Be wary when modifying the default engine values in the Engine Settings window. The default values are: Win98,Me,XP - Engine 1, Blunder 2; Win 2000 - Engine 1; Blunder 13. If you are concerned about optimizing the frame-rate for the 3D chess sets, we suggest the following:-- Go to "Preferences -> Board Settings" and turn off reflections, shadows, transitions, bump mapping, antialiasing and glare. Realistic shadows cause the biggest dip in performance, followed by complex shadows, reflections, glare, simple shadows and then bump mapping. Antialiasing also eats a lot of your processor's resources.-- Run Windows in a 16-bit display mode instead of a 32-bit mode. For significantly older cards, this could cause a very noticeable performance increase.4. Chessmaster automatically considers your graphic card's performance and alters the default settings accordingly. The default values are: Shadows - Complex, Reflections - OFF, Bump Mapping - ON, Transitions - ON. If you want to change any of these settings, just go to "Preferences -> Board Settings".5. Chessmaster uses a third engine instance (called the "Mentor" engine) for all "mentor" features, such as Advice, Game Analysis, Hint and Solve for Mate (as well as providing data for the Post Game Analysis, Mentor Lines and Visual Thinking windows). Unfortunately, starting up any of these features will restart the Mentor engine and any analysis data that is currently in the Mentor Lines or Visual Thinking windows will be lost.6. You may notice that computer players sometimes make their moves very quickly (usually during the opening moves of a game), and that other audio/visual aspects of the program (such as piece movement audio and the updating of the board and child windows) seem to lag behind or even get lost in the speed of the consecutive moves. This is because the actual moves themselves are given the highest priority in Chessmaster. The engine, in a nutshell, gets to do what it wants, WHEN it wants. For example, making the engine wait to move so that the audio for the previous move can finish playing could possibly cause the engine to lose a game by running out of time when it normally would not have done so. So, let's assume that you are watching a game between two computer players. If this game starts with a flurry of opening book moves on both sides, you may not hear or see anything, other than the moves being made on the board, until all of the moves have been made and one of the engines starts thinking (out of opening book). After a short
