KChess Elite has lots of features to help you play better chess.
See the pieces that have been taken, where pieces can move, who can
take what, which move the computer recommends, the name of the opening
(from the Encyclopaedia of Chess Openings), a narration about the
relative strength and position of both players, whether checkmate is
inevitable, and more. An arrow highlights the last move so you can
see clearly what has happened. Set the board to a specific layout,
rotate it, enlarge it, change the set of pieces, and even add your own
comments to a game.
Other information available is hints for
beginners, glossary of chess terms and tactics, tip of the day, the
rules of chess, and helpful information about children and chess.
Unlimited undo and redo, move hinting and replay, and the ability to
set up multiple variation boards gives you complete control of the game
and allows alternate strategies to be explored. Print board layouts,
game details and move lists using a choice of 20 chess figurine fonts.
Open and save games in multiple formats, including the internationally
recognised PGN, FEN and EPD formats.
Board layouts can be
saved in BMP, GIF, JPEG and PNG formats. Whole games can be saved to
HTML as a web page, including any number of board layouts.
KChess Elite can play with two players, one player against the computer
(black or white), or the computer against itself. Choose from a variety
of time restrictions, or none at all. Change the playing strength to
suit yourself. There are dozens of options to customise the appearance
and operation of the game.
