I have been a gold star member for 2 years and have just been told that I can only use the analyzer twice in a week. I have looked at the premium members and they can use it indefinately. What this implys is that the more money you pay the more advantage you have in the game. I suggest that this is manifestly unfair. We are amateurs playing for the fun of it. Why tip the scales??? Regards crossing2
The analysis is naturally done after the game has finished, so they're not getting an advantage *during* the game :)
I have never had my game analyzed, this warning came during the game
I had hoped for a comment from a staff member
What warning did you receive?
That I was allowed to use the analyzer only twice in one week
good grief. You can download a better, faster analysis program for free if you do not want to pay. Actually any of 10 dozen programs, to be more exact. Most support replacing with a strong free engine, of which there are another dozen or so. There is no advantage by the paying players except the questionable ability to use a third rate engine for analysis that comes back about 20 times later than your personal one would but is about 3 mouse clicks more convient.
jonnin thank you, please tell me more
tell you what lol? Do a web search for a free chess engine. Download the PGN file from your completed game and mash the analysis button. It generally gives you a score for what you did, and the best possible move sequence (usually at least 5+ deep) at each position for both sides.
I have been using "arena" for windows.
