Hey guys! Don't lose faith in iceman! This thread is years old and he came out of nowhere with this software!
@fewlio: You are completely right! But why did he (icemanrocks) this great piece of software (with limitation) ...advertised it actively on chess.com and lichess.org, invited everyone, who has questions to contact him, build a OWN website...AND DON'T answer emails, private messages or forum posts????
...by the way...he is still playing on chess.com...very vivid...
It is sooooo sad...

he may be mulling over whether it will be paid software or freeware
Being able to use the DGT board with chess.com would be awesome! Hope he updates us soon.
@fewlio: And that's why he does not communicate???... Pfffff...okay....will see if there is any progress in future...still hoping :-)
I have the same feeling. That is, I like the ChessGuard tool and would love a pay a reasonable amount of money to get a unlimited version. However, there appear to be no developments since March 2017 and I did not get any reply on my e-mail sent to the address given on the website.
Ok, finally there's an update which is a free unlimited version. Just check www.chessguard.com .
One remark: I recently had major connection problems with the bluetooth connection. This has turned out to be a driver issue on my computer. Most likely a Windows update did not changed things to the better so I needed to install also the latest bluetooth driver on my laptop. Now it works fine again
i told u guys to have faith in iceman! he rawks!!!!
паскуды и это не полная характеристика этого сайта.я постоянно играю гандикапы.за меня ходят.с меня снимают время...
@IcemanRocks, thank you - thank you - thank you! This is just great!
I tried ChessGuard_V0_8 on lichess.org and chess.com and it worked flawlessly in both cases.
(The bluetooth connection problem I also experienced. Twice actually, both cases after a Windows 10 update. )
Next question is, and I know I'm asking too much, do you have plans to display the moves on the DGT 3000 clock?
Thank you once again and please keep up to good work!
Actually this works already. You need to activate the "Move Analysis" checkbox in ChessGuard and you need to activate "Announce moves on clock" in the DGT RabbitPlugin ( press RabbitPlugin in ChessGuard and then go to tab DGT Clocks->first option ). It's also possible to activate the sound under "Sound" and "Announce moves with voice" to get the opponents move by speech announcement.
There's still a minor drawback as not all moves might be announced in the current version, so that's something I have to check.
@IcemanRocks, you are amazing! I tried it and it worked (most of the times) on chess.com and lichess.org.
You have created a bridge between two things that I like: my e-board and chess.com. I am very grateful and I think both chess.com and DGT should be grateful too!
About the minor drawback. I have experienced this too. Sometimes the move announcement stops working, both on the DGT 3000 clock and the voice. Sometimes a little further in the game it suddenly begins working again, but mostly not.
I also noticed this same problem when I use the e-board with the Dasher.exe from ICC and on the PlayChess client. So to me it seems to be a common problem. Either in the RabbitPlugin or in the way that RabbitPlugin is being invoked.
It is amazing app! Please leave any contacts for donation. The only step left (and almost impossible one, I do understand) is to make the Mac people happy.
You can't use the rabbit-plugin on a mac anyway. Dgt is still working on it. No reason to port the program for a mac if the board the program is made for still doesn't support the platform. XD
Ironically, I have a MacBook, and it works just fine with the Dgt board. Hehe.
pssst.......the secret is bootcamp! It was horribly difficult tho...... should have just been content with using my windows desktop.....
вы конченные сволочи-посмотрели бы как я проиграл сегодня две партии...вам главное нажива-все остальное спущено на тормоза...твари бессовестные...за грош наверное удавитесь...
Iceman Rocks! Thanks a lot!
ChessGuard_V0_8 works perfectly on chess.com thanks a lot for this great effort mister Iceman!
@iceman: Please let us know how can we donate in order to motivate more enhancements to this beautiful app.
This is great. Also, Harry needs a push.
@iceman: is it possible for you to leave us some ideas about how to prevent the application to lose some of the movements in the middle of the game? Yesterday I just tried to play an entire game in chess.com and I had to do some of the movements (2 or 3) in my entire game, because the application didn't recognize the movements automatically.
Thanks a lot for this amazing effort I would like to hear some ideas about the best use of your app.
