SETTING THE PLAY LEVELS

The Schachcomputer 64 has 64 levels of play (Levels A1 - H8). Level A1 is the easiest with the fastest response time and the H-Levels are the hardest levels. The levels gradually increase in strength therefore the computer plays better the higher the play level that you choose (The computer has more thinking time). On the even level numbers from A to H (2,4,6,8) the computer will play better endgames than in the odd number levels (1,3,5,7). Tactically the computer is stronger in the upper levels 5-8 than in the lower levels 1-4. Therefore you may see situations where the next level you choose seems weaker then the previous level that you had just played. Generally speaking however, the higher the level the more thinking time for the computer therefore the stronger the play of the computer.
