Chessmaster 11 status

Post by Kaj Soderberg » Fri Nov 02, 2007 1:02 pm

I'm confused about the status of CM11. On the one hand i see on the Chessmaster site that it is available and that there are (not engine related) small bug fixes available for download, and on the other hand i read here that there is a delay in delivery.

Does anyone know the real status? I really want this engine, but not paying for a non-existing product or an early release loaded with problems.

Thanks for any information in advance.

Kaj

I just managed to order mine at bol.com here in Holland. They say they have it on stock. It should arrive on about Monday.

BTW Have you seen if the engine can be used as an UCI engine?

Best regards,

Kaj

Here is an information about the engine from the readme file :


5. Engine settings
In the “Engine Settings” window (or the "Preferences>Engine Settings" menu) you will find the “Chess Engine Used” setting.
Here you'll be able to choose which engine Chessmaster will use:
- Low resources engine: the Chessmaster Grandmaster Edition engine, but without the multithread and multicore options;
- Medium resources engine: the Chessmaster Grandmaster Edition engine, but without the multithread option;
- High resources engine: the Chessmaster Grandmaster Edition engine, with the multithread option;

Has anyone purchased the download version and downloaded it? And what is the file size?

Thanks

Where can you get a "download" version? I can't find it on the internet for download and there is already a patch for it. :lol:
