Arrange all Windows as you like!

All the different information like the move list, candidate move list, position explorer or previous move list are shown in their own window. The big advantage of this concept: You can move, dock and resize each window as you like. Beside docking a window to the left or right side you can let them even pin/hide or float.




skinsThe program supports several different skins which change the overall look & feel of the program. There are even some season specific skins like the “Xmas 2008 Blue”. After selecting a different skin you might want to adjust the square colors of the board to match the colors of the skin.


Adjusting chessboard orientation & colors

You can change the colors of the chessboard, arrows and special colors used for showing the last move, candidate moves or training tips.




There are several sounds available which the program can play when you make a move or capture a piece. Additional sounds can be used for the training to add some fun!
