Re: chess tiger on iphone

Chris, This works on the iPad as well, as I have not had any problems with iPhone apps on the iPad. I have 2 comments. 1 - I just played a 1 minute game and flagged. The program did not call my flag and claim a win. My time showed 0, but I was allowed to continue playing. 2 - If you patch this, or ...

Re: chess tiger on iphone

hi Christophe, I think it involved Bxg2 Kxg2 Qb7+ and then Bxc3. Tiger thought you could not recapture on c3. The problem here is that the line is quite forced, and creating an horizon effect in a forced line results in a too obvious mistake. How about using a SEE like function to spot these obviou...

Re: chess tiger on iphone

yes, the amateur definitely blunders a few times. I think this app is pretty close to perfect. i wonder what happens if you have training level on and you change to aggressive, very aggressive , and suicidal...I imagine you would see about a 50 elo drop for each variation on the main personality? I...

Re: chess tiger on iphone

I am curious Christophe. What did chess tiger see in this position that made it want to sacrifice. It did lead to some dangerous threats on the h file and some potential knockout shots featuring the rook and queen focusing on h1 Actually this has been caused by the "handicaped" search. I play with ...

Re: chess tiger on iphone

Hi, is it possible to run Chess Tiger app on a IPhone emulator from genuitec at normal speed? Happy Easter Werner No sorry. What Genuitec provides is NOT an iPhone emulator. It's one of the most misleading advertisement I have ever seen. With their tools you create apps using HTML5, JavaScript and ...

Re: chess tiger on iphone

Wow, you've gone through a lot of trouble. It has payed off in the ease in which the player can find a level that perfectly suits him/her Thanks to the really cool function of being able to load your previous game, I was able to reload the game with the blunder. This is on iphone and chess tiger is...

Re: ChessTiger Update

The name is not important. Look, you can have a horrible and nonsensical name like "Stockfish" and still be popular. ;-) True, but actually the iOS version is named "Stockfish chess", in order to make it easier to find accidentally when searching for chess programs on the app store. I have several ...

Re: chess tiger on iphone

I spoke too soon. Chess tiger just gave away a knight on the 1910 (grade A) training level, making a move that no grade a player would ever make. If you want a realistic game from a chess game, then i think some processing resources need to be devoted to playing humans (resources that do not increa...

Re: Taming the Tiger :-)

OK, it deserves a try. Meanwhile, you are free to test it manually. One thing I will have to decide is this: if there is little material left, switching to the aggressive mode will not work anyway. Where should I draw the line? Maybe you can help by testing manually?// Christophe One idea would be ...
