What a scam

Relevance to 5 month old topic at hand???
Hey Matt, there is a personality on Chessmaster 10th addition called Max. He has the craziest openings I have ever seen but the play is fun and he moves quickly. Max has a 1588 rating and like you mentioned the personalities like Max transform into Gary Kasparov or Magnus Carlson in the middle game. Try Max . You might like his play.
he doesn't think because if you look into his programming, he depth is 1 move ahead, but his stregth is 100. well it takes 0.00000001 seconds to see one move ahead for a computer. i played him again and again until i could beat hin in 1 second: i designed a way of checkmate in 29 moves against him
Ixnay on the etard-ray, please ;)...
Don`t be so damn sensitive! I have a retarded son; I learned to deal with it!
Some people simply just don`t have the talent to play or are poorly coached. Maybe the original poster should take up another game. Sorry. It just looks obvious. Please, do yourself a favor, grasshopper, learn a different hobby and stop embarassing yourself!
Chess is a very frustrating game. I usually don't play against a computer but do play live and sometimes my opponent makes stupid moves and still wins! Once Grandmaster Aron Nimzovich got so frustrated at a chess tournament that he jumped up on a table and shouted, "Why must I lose to this idiot!"
I recommend using the program Lucas Chess or Dasher which are free and play against thier personalities.
Dasher is the reason the quality of ICC has declined since 2005. It's pretty, but does not function as smoothly as Blitzen. Maybe someone ought to develop a GUI with the best of both and call it Donner.
I had Chessmaster and hated it. It would make brilliant moves and then a really stupid one followed by more brilliant moves. I got Shredder 12 , and to me it's like playing a real player more than a computer.
While I think Chessmaster has some really good attributes, it is frustrating to have to play nearly flawlessly against a sub 1500 player on there in some tournament games.
I cannot understand how I win six games in a row and then lose six games in a row: is it all a put up job? Or am I paranoid?
Maybe you're schizophrenic. Or dual personalities.
my mind is blown that any chess player could be below a 1300
