I NEED LIVE CHESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You make it sound like making the Live Chess feature is like cooking dinner in a microwave; just set the timer and wait until it's done. But surely it's not like that, is it? If it's done in 2 hours, it's also done now, and if it's not done yet now, then it also won't be done in 2 hours
But sure, why not make Chess.com wait a little longer so they get more excited
ok. the very early alpha-pre-stage-first-glance-be-patient-with-us view of live chess :)
It was pretty cool! I like it!!
I played Blitz for the first time in my life, and it is wayyyy different than regular chess game. Pretty Cool though...
With my dial-up connection, the loading took some time. I noticed some hesitation or drag in moving the pieces. This wouldn't be much of anything in a standard time control, but in a blitz game, where even seconds count, it's more relevant. It probably won't happen at all with broadband connections.
The layout is clean and uncluttered. I found the controls obvious and easy to use. I really like the board (in the default size). The graphics aren't fancy, but they're clean and sharp, easy on the eyes, with just enough contrast - a perfect example of less being more.
There are many choices of styles of chessmen and board colors. I would like to see a test page where one could go and examine each of these colors and styles before playing.
I played Erik one game at 5/0, an interesting game too, considering the short time control. I lost on time. I'm not sure if I was playing that slowly, or if my dial-up connection had something to do with it. I assume there's a time-stamp of some sort.
I also played with Eric and lost on time. I played using explorer and I too noticed that it was dragging a little bit. However, it most likely is a problem with my explorer setup. I also tried with Opera, which is is typically quite faster than explorer on this site. Unfortunately Opera did not work with live chess...
I think overall the players with faster connections and optimized browsers/computers may have a small edge in some cases. But that may be expected...
After playing a lovely first game of blitz chess, which was great, I couldn't figure out how to get a PGN file of this game. As great as it is to play blitz, it's even greater to be able to review all your awful moves ;)
The Ajax code and the IGoogle drag'n drop/resize windows features give to live.chess.com a very friendly and nice looking style.
Didn't had the chance to actually play a game, but i'm very impress with what i've seen so far.
As a programmer myself, i can say that you guys are doing a WONDERFULL job!!!
Congratulations To Erik and all his team!!
I really don't think an applet would be appropriate. To stay fully compatible with all user's browsers and their configurations, they should really continue with their Ajax/Dhtml engine and fix the small issues some of you found so far.
At work on a T1, Live Chess is fluid and incredible. At home on a 768K DSL line it wasn't so hot so I can only imagine what dialup must be like. Clearly, its aimed at the full DSL/ Cable crowd.
Yup, I was only refering to the windows "drag'n drop" style that you implemented on the live chess, this feature is absolutely amazing.
Good work guys!
Very Good news!!! That's very kind of you to get fresh news from the guys behind this wonderfull website!
I have dial-up. Is it safe?
Safe? Yes it is perfectly safe. Will it work correctly? some people seem to get little problem with slow internet connexion. Try it and give us your feedback!
By the way, i've tried my first live chess game 5 mins blitz, it was FANTASTIC. I've found no bug so far, the game ran smoothly and it was pretty fast. I've enjoy every seconds of my game.
To celebrate the new year and a fine live chess system, Érik, piotr and the others programmers should definitely get a nice bonus for all your fine, hard work you put into this wonderful system.
Nice job guys, see you on the battlefield!
