A little explaination about line 18 and 191 or 180 and 1910 for the newer code. Line 18 is for the Radio Shack Model 3/4. Some of the machines ran under the model 3 operating system which was about 1/2 as fast as the model 4 machine. The code on line 18 make it run at the faster speed and line 191 slows it back down once again.
If some one would mail me the program I will try to get the print formating to work properly. I still have a Model 4 that works.
Email me directly at
Thanks to all the interested parties and if any one is interested I have a large collection of chess programs all written in basic.
