Whatís Included in Chess King?

Houdini 2 Pro - currently the highest rated chess engine and an excellent choice for analysis. Considering such a strong engine can be frustrating to play against, Houdini 2 Pro includes various kinds of handicaps that can be set up using the Chess King Pro interface. The Pro version of Houdini 2 that comes with Chess King Pro supports up to 32 cores and 32 GB of hash, allowing yo to utilize all resources of modern hardware!

GigaKing Database and Corr 2011 contain over five million chess games. These databases include games from the 16th century up to November of this year. GigaKing contains almost all available master games as well as games from many lesser tournaments, junior events etc. Corr 2011 is a database of correspondence games. The number and quality of the games contained in these databases is on par with those found in the most expensive database packages.

Full opening tree is a statistics database of positions in the GigaKing database. It shows how often a move has been played and the success rate of each move. The opening tree is a useful guide when learning the openings and reviewing your games or a game from the database.

Chess puzzles. Chess King includes more than 1500 puzzles, from extremely easy to grandmaster level (25 categories).

Over one hundred opening positions. You start from very easy starting positions with a large material advantage and by winning enough games you move up to the next level. The catch is that Houdini will be playing against you at full strength! Thatís quite a different experience from playing against a chess engine at reduced strength.

Photos of over 1600 chess players. The photos are displayed when you view games played by these players. You can add new photos by clicking the playerís image (or the image placeholder if an image is missing).

Know issue: Lenovo-laptops do not install Chess King correctly. If you own this type of laptop do not purchase this product.

Full Windows 7 (32 & 64 bit), Vista and XP compatibility for all programs.

Out of the 500+ installs as of Feb. 13, 2012, we have 3 reports of failed installs, all on LENOVO machines, specifically Z560 laptop, W520, and E420. This means there is something not standard in some Lenovo machines that is stopping full installation. We are investigating the issue to see if anyone with Lenovo has been able to install Chess King and our programmers are preparing troubleshooting tools and a possible fix. We heard that Chess King installed fine on a Lenovo B570 (Intel Pentium CPU B940 2Ghz 4GM ram, 64 bit) Running Windows 7 Home Premium SP1. So Lenovo users please check you have SP1 installed.
