Commodore 64 Emu The Fidelity Chessmaster 2100 (1988)

THE CHESSMASTER 2100 is another brilliant game with many improved features compared to its predecessor CHESSMASTER 2000. The chess engine in the Disk version was written by Dan & Kathe Spracklen and is a modified and improved version of SARGON III. The cassette tape version according to Mark Manyen (lead programmer for early versions of the Chessmaster series) had a different chess engine due to space constrictions. In the cassette tape version a version of David Kittinger’s MYCHESS was used.

You can switch between the OPTION MENUS and the game’s CHESS BOARD with the F1 Key. Chess moves can be entered by either Joystick, using your PC’s directions arrows or entering the moves directly ie. e2e4.

The Spacious-Mind Active game results (shown above) are from games played with a Commodore 64 or 128. Playing THE FIDELITY CHESSMASTER 2100 with an Emulator should play exactly the same as using a Commodore 64 or 128.

Chess Game Examples

The game example below originates from the C64 Open Championship and was played with a real Commodore 64 or 128 and original THE FIDELITY CHESSMASTER 2100 software, however the Emulator Software should play exactly as the original game.
