Hello all

I am new here and fairly new to computer chess. I played in my first ever CSS tourney a few weeks ago and it was quite an experience. It was a logistical nightmare from a set-up point of view though. I used a basic HP laptop Arena Rybka that's it and switching between playchess and arena and setting up board positions incorrectly (my first game against Mission Control in a Sicilian Sozin I played from memory for a few moves and then used set up a position mode in Arena for instance and misplaced a pawn so Rybka was analysing a marginally different game from the one that was actually being played!)

Okay will some good Samaritan take me through the process like I am a 3-year old. Okay do I set up a tournament between rybka and my opponent? And then click on book until we are out of book. What then cos Arena does nothing at this stage even after I click on analyse now. It just sits there and stares at me. Then I set-up a position and it's either white moves or black, infinite analysis right? How do I get the interface that allows me to set myself up as a centaur because everyone was saying click #edit' etc preferences but I have no such selection mode under my edit function. Where do I get the interface that has it because I thought I had the latest one.

Forgive these simple questions. God only knows how I managed to secure 2 wins 3 draws 3 losses in the freestyle. So slowly now the exact steps as in step 1. step 2 step 3 ok? :) or should I rather use another version of arena ( i used the new beta)...

For analysis, you should just run Rybka in "infinite analysis" mode, which every major GUI supports. Then, Rybka will 'comment' about every position on your screen.

Thanks for the reply Vas.
