    Chessmaster4000(Turbo)
    LGG 2.0
    Mate2.1
    Hiarcs, Junior or Shredder 4
    Genius4
    Chess Genius 3.0-4.0

    I got given an old computer chess on disk, I dont know if its like compat wif windows but its like really old... its like 3d guys and you have to look at the board lik from your end and if you get to get the other guys guy then the two guys have a little sword fight before your guy kills him and then your guy moves to that square. It not very good to play games with, I can try and find it for you if you want

    gee, some of these went out along with flarred bell bottoms.

    seriously though,
    the genius series by programmer lang was rolled up with a final gold version
    with includes all version dos and win 1-6 or so.
    can probably pick up for $20 or so from some retailers.

    not sure about other progs though i still have a version of hiarcs 1.0
    but unfortunately in those days they have copy-protection on the floppy disk!

    I'm pretty sure Chessmaster4000 can be found for download!!!

    Thank you in advance guys!
    I know it's very difficult these programs to be found but I'm 100% sure for one of them.

    It's Chessmaster4000 (Chessmaster4000 Turbo)

    I have found it in few sites so far but the download link didn't work, it was corrupt!!! So I'm sure that program can be found in internet for download. I search like mad for it!!!

    Please, if anyone knows where I can download Chessmaster4000 from let tell me! I would be very happy to realize a dream of mine!!!

    Have a nice day

    Smile winboard

    do u have winboard?

    there are hundreds of engines you can use with it.

    i think some of the old commercial progs might have winboard versions
