Do you not hear the whirring of the motors as it moves its piece anyway

I see

Hello. Does anybody know how to disable the sounds from the square off? I mean the sound that comes when you press the piece on the board. I am not speaking about the sound coming from the moving mechanism. I have disabled the sounds in the App, but it disables only the sounds coming from my mobile phone.

Is there no user manual for the SquareOff?

Just contact support, they will answer you soon.

I think an user manual is not needed because the system is easy to use, I guess.

The whirring of the motors is much more quiet, it is not a problem.

 Are you asking the about the beeping noise when you register a move from the board to the app and the check noise when you get put in check? I think before you start a game it ask if you want sound on. Are you turning that off? I've always had it off so I don't know what it sounds like with it on and if that is your question

Peter78b you should send a message through the app to support, the contact us button. Maybe they will have a work around. I turned out to be tone deaf after I got mine I came to realize this, so I do not hear the tones when pressing squares, and your correct I have been able to adjust to what happens when you cannot hear pressing the squares. I won't repeat the procedure unless someone else has my problem. I had asked them to change the frequency of the tone so I could hear it but nothing came of it. I am getting a hearing aid soon and will be able to hear the tones, but I doubt I will use it when playing as I would find myself with your problem.

Jr87 - Yes, it is this beeping noise when I register a move from the move. Yes, when I start to play chess, I turn off the sound in the App, but the Square Off  board still beeps.

I do not think so, as of now anyway. But I can ask them to add the option. They add new features constantly. I will get back to you happy.png

It is a very nice chess. I love it.

Just pity, that it still does not have the "take back" and "hint" option when you play only with "AI"......

Because sometimes I realize just 1/100 second after my move that I wanted to go somewhere else (means that I have just done a stupid mistake and that I have to resign the game and play again from the beginning).

Adding "take back turn" and "hint button" would be also good for my son in order not to discourage him to play chess (as he from time to time/regularly makes a stupid move).
