How could you not beat that weak system? I beat it when I was only around the 1000 range against it's strongest levels!
It's really a terrible program. Just don't commit to an attack, and don't let any pieces drop. It will make a positional error and you can kill it.
How do you play without committing to an attack? I tried, and that didn't work. But if you have any more suggestings, I'm willing to listen.
Usually this advice is what I do when I have black and it plays 1. d4 or 1. c4, which it plays way too frequently for my tastes. Develop pieces and don't allow major weaknesses (doubled pawns or backward ones on semi-open files etc.). It will start shuffling around and you can spot a weakness and go for the kill.
hi, the program does not always notice a fork threat.
You play good chess.
Play Shredder online with the easy setting and 'coach on.' You'll be crushing Chess Titans in no time.
If you're having a hard time beating Chess Titans, go down to level 1. My 5-year-old nephew once played Chess Titans on level 1 and lost about half his pieces before he had to leave. I took over the game and ended up winning.
You need Greek gods to deal with titans. Ask Zeus for help
I knew it You had to have a sence of humor not just great writing ability
(your articles are excelent)
I use the London System and avoid trades as much as possible and i win about 80% of my games against level 10... all you have to do is complicate the position and the computer will blunder.
Yeah, I think I actually beat Titan the first time with the London as well. I beat it with KIA last time. As others have said, lock up the position, don't trade, and let it make the first mistake.
I sometimes play the Titan on my friends' computers. I have never lost against it (of course!), but the last time (3 days ago) I beat it so so easily. For the first time I saw the software play so horribly (I won a Queen vs Rook compensation in a combi). Guess what, I used the King's Gambit.
here is one of my games with it it fails epicly
Ask Samuel Shankland
Just a few minutes ago, he eliminated chess titan Peter Leko in the first round of Khanty-Mansiysk 2011 !!
What level was that?
You are such a troller -.- leave it to the public to drop those comments, just go and beat up a few more men :D
Be aggressive. Don't drop any pieces. Attack, but don't sacrifice until you're sure. I usually beat level 10 quite easily
not too much, I beat the hardest level before. Pretty much accuracy and no blundering
Chess Titan is not perfect for sure, but it makes a good chess player because it makes mistakes and see how fast you can capitalize on them, I recommend you set a real chess board next to the cp, and make your move looking at a real board, to prepare you for what really counts=live chess OTB!!!!
Chess Titans is an awful program, make sure you try to pawnstorm it, I've found that castling opposite it and then throwing pawns at it is a good way of defeating it (even if it wouldn't be the best plan in a normal game, it works more frequently against Titans)
Also it doesn't really understand positional sacrifices at all and so doesn't prepare itself against them, it will generally play moves like h6, g6 or g5 without any real worry for its own king safety, just try and weaken some of the squares around its king and tempt its own pawns forward, it'll probably oblige.
It also seems to go apeshit when it realizes it's losing and just plays WEIRD moves, such as giving up entire rooks sometimes on a whim... idk who programmed this lol. It's always good fun beating an engine though, I rarely have trouble with it any more (no-one past 1500 really does I don't think), just keep playing it, you'll find out its weakspots for yourself. GL.
CT uses Wcrafty(Presumely 21) With all types of Books( Gambit,Sacrificial as well as sharp openings.) It is positional in most instances and only tactical in some cases. Any engine more stronger than Crafty can beat it. Move out of Wcrafty if u want to improve...... Fritz, Houdini and Rybka are its superiors, chess master too. Giving off an ackward move beats it real time.... Give off a sharp tactical line and spurce off some sacrifices to make the king vulnerable, I see u already know:-D, are in my view the best way to beat it.
