    Would that be a misdemeanor or a felony? Surprised Actually, a number of people in this thread have recommended Lucas Chess.

    i like Lucas Chess, specially fics-elo and fide-elo. also played many lucas-elo in version 7 and 8.

    just downloaded latest 9th version. but i dont see what i expected most!

    in lucas-elo my rating would be 1700+

    but the problem is that i need to play 60+ games to achieve that rating!

    SurprisedYell

    because lucas-elo starts at 0. each win gives max 29.  29*60 = 1740

    already made 1700+ in Lucas8, now for Lucas9 i need playing another 60+ games ? for every succsive versions? 

    absurd. can't imagine the developers didn't notice this simple yet important fix still now.

    I know...I love lucas chess from playing training games. I usually play 45/45 and select a random player.   I think this best free software for playing online (fics) is babaschess (1) and arena (2).

    If you could start a new thread so that this thread doesn't get hijacked, someone should be able to help you with your problem.

    I tried to use arena chess software to connect to chess.com, but i couldn´t,

    What is the correct address I enter in "Chess Server" ?.

    Is there any other program that allows me to connect to chess.com? use the interface of a program of chess rather than connect to the web site? Thank you!!

    I don't think that's possible...At least I've never heard of anyone saying he did that. I think chess.com is strictly web based.

    Lucas Chess , Scid , Tarrasch (simple and good) , Arena (although is seems a bit complicated to me sometimes). And Chessmaster Grandmaster Edition. I know it's outdated , but it has the best openings tutorial , extremely user-friendly and useful.
