Although I'm not officially rated 3001 ELO I'd like to think one day I'll be so I just put 3001 ELO for hope. This game just shows my beginning when I tried to outsmart Chessmaster the first few times until I succeed. It may take me until I'm near 80 years old or such, but I'm happy. I consider it my hobby to play chess.
It's not the most powerful chess software. There are a handful of chess engines that are significantly higher rated than Chessmaster. Aside from that, 11th edition is already out, so Chessmaster 10th ed. can't possibly be the strongest.
The Chessmaster series is great though. Real user friendly.
I remember well my highest achievement reaching 2212 ELO on Chessmaster 10th Edition.
While I was doing my endgame studies setting up a board with a lone K+B+N against lone black K I was able to defeat Chessmaster 10th Edition for the PC at 2963 ELO.
Again, it’s not Elo OR USCF. Chessmaster uses its own rating system, which may or may not even closely correlate to an Elo or USCF rating.
It's safer just to call it a rating. Leave Elo out of it. :)
Well it shows a lot of people that are ELO/FIDE rated on there.
That doesn't make it Elo or USCF. :)
I remember I didn't even have an idea of my ELO rating when I first started.
I think the first I ever heard of ELO was on Chessmaster 10th Edition.
Also, ELO online against real people is different thank ELO on Chessmaster 10th Edition for the PC.
Also I draw/tie Chessmaster 10th Edition for the PC at 2200-ish ELO.
why don't you understand that chessmaster ratings are NOT uscf?
I think it says USCF on Chessmaster 10th Edition specifically?
it's fun to be incorrect and look silly? i don't get that. uscf is not chessmaster, and chessmaster is not elo. what's 'fun' about being dead wrong and letting everyone know it?
There must be some correlation between ELO and Chessmaster 10th Edition for the PC. After all the grandmasters are rated close to their real life ratings.
i'm just trying to help you. if you claim that you are uscf rated because you play a video game, someone is going to call you out on it because it's 100% incorrect.
meh, if you don't mind being incorrect, go for it. :)
Well I might not be able to win in person against the equivalent ELO however I'd like to think I got a high level. It's just something to aspire to I guess. Thank you for trying to help out.
CM is a great program. Probably the best chess software for beginners because it offers an all-in-one package- challenging computer play, extensive introductions to basic chess concepts, good presentation (with the voice narration), simple puzzles, a decent opening book, and even a game analyzer (which will catch major blunders).
It certainly inspired me to take an interest in chess. That said, it's not without it's flaws...
I confess I've edited my comment so I don't look like the lowest scumbag ever and I renounce from all my dirty deeds.
I do favour Chessmaster 10th Edition for the PC because it is more consistent than the ratings in person online in my humble opinion.
