Hi all,
I have tried to download Chessmaster XI and it tells me that it cannot be bought in Australia. Is there any way to get around this? Why would they prevent selling it here? If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated.

You could try finding a web-browser anonymous proxy service that would mask your IP address, making you look like an American or something like that I suppose.

That was the first thing I tried, and it didn't work.

Thanks for the link Spiny! I ordered it and it is now installed on my laptop. Worked like a charm ;)

I recommend this very much. I used the tutorials and Josh Waitzkin academy in Chessmaster 9000 and X to get me to whatever strength I was at when I started playing at MCC. I loved having this piece of software on my computer! I hope Josh is apart of XII.

the chessmaster game is good but there is a problem with the lower level opponents, all of their moves will be exactly the same as they were in the last game you played if you use the same strategy
