I am looking for someone who can write me a program that is better than the p()go chess buddy.
My ideal program would have similar features but also the option to be able to use opening books .ctg or .abk files
Be able to use any winboard or UCI engine
better response to time remaining in a game........
an option to be able to use 3-4-5 EGTB
and a few other creative ideas......However the Opening book option is a MUST.......I am a bullet chess fanatic so hit me up with an email please :)
I would be willing to pay for the program of course so please make a deal with me. I prefer to be contacted by email not on this site so please do not reply to this posting but do so at this emaill address Italian81@gmail.com
Thankyou very much!!
> If there is anyone on here that is familiar with www.playbuddy.com on it is a program that can play chess for you automatically on yahoo or pogo. I use this program to play other computers and I analyze the games and pgn files to better my own knowledge of the game
In other words you want a good cheating software. You don't really need this cheating software to analyze there are tons of chess GUIs and free engines there which can give you quality analysis.
Obviously you are not intending to analyze games but instead to cheat on these chess servers you mention and spoil other peoples games. I mean when I play on a chess server I expect I am playing another human except when there are "legal" computer accounts (now don't tell me you have one because yahoo or pogo or most chess sites does not support any of these and if there are any they are a few).
What do you get in these cheating anyway, this will not make you any better. Your just wasting your computer's electricity and other people's time. Please get a LIFE dude.
> Your just wasting your computer's electricity and other people's time. Please get a LIFE dude.
However, being mean to cheaters isn't the solution, trying to help them to understand why cheating is bad for everyone would be better.
> You can in no way stop cheaters.The solution is to get better at playing chess
The reason I dislike cheating is that sometimes getting better at chess makes no difference and could be discouraging.
Like when I become so good at chess that I can win my opponent's bishop and rook with some maneuvers, but he doesn't resign, and then he's putting the toughest defense as if my material advantage doesn't matter. I start to despair and to play worse, and then he gets back the material and wins.
A person that played so badly at the beginning can't play suddenly that good, and I think that he used computer help at the turning point. So, my skills didn't matter at all, the game could have been "I resign" from the beginning, why to play at all?
Sometimes they use the engine so late in the game that I still can beat them, but the difference in style and strength seems obvious. Sometimes they don't use engines at all, it's all human vs. human, those are the games I enjoy the most :) (When I lose, it was my fault, not just someone switching on an engine.)
Exactly , although one can't complain about playing on a site that is free. Pay-sites have methods of weeding out cheaters.Yahoo and pogo won't take any actions.
>Pay-sites have methods of weeding out cheaters.
FICS and ChessPlanet do too. They're just quieter about it than PlayChess (where you see '<player> broke the rules and his rating has been reset' all the time).
Imagine someone that wants to cheat like that but finds that it doesn't work as expected and stops cheating. On the other hand, if such a program existed, once google has it on its database, the cheater would be able to find it and use it to cheat, and probably to tell his friends about it and they will probably cheat too.
Making cheat easier only benefits cheating. It's like manufacturing guns, you're not killing persons directly but more people will die (In this case, instead of dying, just more people will be cheated.)
Take a broader look. Anyone who plays 1+0 is basically playing on synapses. If you had a good opening book and played 1+0 you would, in effect, be playing a different kind of mental trick, especially if you created the software yourself.
I haven't played on the Yahoo server in years because the place has a lawless, wild west aspect. In my view, if you are going there you had better be packing a gun, and if you can manage it, a machine gun. Call me a cheater if you want.
On Pogo the game is about capturing the most opponent's pieces as possible, and making the game the longest, as you get rewarded with tokens, and maximizing them is the point of the game (That may not resemble chess...)
If you think that cheating is OK because you go into a place full of cheaters, and so it's a must or otherwise you get cheated, then it's your opinion. But if most people cheats there then maybe they should rename it Yahoo Cheater Chess, or something.
About the word 'cheat', do you think that I'm overusing it and that I should be using synonyms instead?
Incidentally I am not endorsing cheating. I am only saying Yahoo is a lawless environment full of hooligans, ruffians and bandits. A factual statement. Years ago I remember watching one psychotic on that site who spent hour after hour teasing people with 10+0 minute games, then changing the time control to 1+0 each time someone went after the bait, hoping the unwary opponent wouldn't notice. Hour after hour! Can you even imagine such a level of debased depravity? I am sure he must have tortured animals as a child.
In such a place you can go in and preach against sin if you want, or you can be the toughest bad-ass in town. Your choice.
> If everyone is cheating, then what has happened is that the "rules" have been amended by popular demand.
That made me think, that calling it "Yahoo Cheater Chess" wouldn't make sense, since allowing cheating means that it's no longer cheating, kind of a paradox. But I still think that users should be warned that the chances of playing a computer instead of a humans are pretty high.

Plenty of the words on there were new to me, at least I can say that "it's because I'm Mexican and English isn't my native language."

It must be common practice, since I was victim of this. Luckily for me, I noticed the time control change and went on to win! :-D
