I also have a Mephisto Master computer, I haven't used it in a while. I had a really hard time getting the levels set. I called the company and a man there said "Sir I do not know how play chess, I just sell the machines." Eventually I got it to a level I could beat, then I raised it one level and now I can manage a draw once in a while.
I have a book of openings called "FCO: Fundamental Chess Openings" My intentions are to buy this chess computer and learn to play these openings. Will the computer help me? I also have a chess book of documented games played at a chess club. Will the computer teach me if I reinact these games?
You can play your openings and the computer will play it's best moves in response. The same thing with the games, but it won't analyze, it won't explain why those are the best moves.
I recently purchased this computer on line for 139.95 .but i think when they assembled this unit at the factory some body accidently spilled a a can of of whup ass on the electronic components,because this little stinker is a beast! the manual says at the lowest level (fun level 1 -power saving mode + ps 1) quote "the computer will not only hang pieces,but will try to lose material".I found this not to be true.all it seems to do is make a slightly weaker move in the opening than the very strongest.i can beat it only if i pretend i'm playing in a tournament and write down the moves . I have 13 other sensory board computers which are much easier to beat at low levels . what i like most about this computer,(unlike my fidelity master 2265 or my excaliber grand master)it has a lot of variety in it's moves.even more than my 3 novags which have lots of variety.don't buy this computer if you want to have fun kicking it's ass because you won't.but it's a great computer to help you learn.and a well written manual worth reading carefully.
okay. i'm back with good news for us patzers! i discovered an easy level on this computer . i've been kicking it's butt all day.drag your mephisto out of the closet and i'll show you how to beat it.go to 3.7 Training Levels and set it on Level 49 Ply:1. it is important that you do this first.then set your power saving mode to +PS: 1. you should now find it fairly easy to beat.here is the first game i played with this setting.i played an unsound gambit. 1.d4-d5 2.e4-dxe4 3.Nc3-Nf6 4.f3-Bf5 5.fxe4-Nxe4 6.Qf3-Qxd4? 7.Qxf5-Nxc3 8.Qc8+ Qd8 9.Qxd8+ Kxd8 10.bxc3 from there i went on to win.i played more games and it answered with a variety of moves.next i'll try ply2 . sorry i'm 2 years too late.:-(
im just a beginner, i start to "re-play" the game a few months ago, i bought the master chess unit, and im very happy, i must say its a thoug oponent, but if you play using Training 1 Ply, Saving +3 its not that hard to win, i did it plaing white using bird opening. I think Level Fun 1, in comparison, is so much harder to win. I love my unit and the chance to play OTB.
Yeah I have the same problem,very difficult to beat even at a low setting.
But I do beat it at kick boxing.
