"Chess-7" is a software that lets you experience an exciting and popular board game, chess. It allows you to play with a human partner or the computer. Furthermore, it also enables players to analyse chess positions and solve problems.
First and foremost, you can choose to play chess with the computer (with three levels of difficulty) or with a partner. You can even play via network if you want to challenge players from all over the world.
But Chess-7 goes beyond just gameplay. You can also use it to analyze chess positions or solve chess problems. Plus, you can easily view and edit descriptions of positions, complete with comments, numeric annotation glyphs, and variations. The program even allows for visual analysis of game variations.
Want to change up the look of the board or pieces? Chess-7 offers seven built-in skins and 21 external skins. You can even create your own skins using the Skin Maker tool. And if that’s not enough, you can modify the appearance of the non-game part of the window, including the background and tone color, chessboard scale, and coordinate readout.
During gameplay, Chess-7 offers useful features such as showing possible moves, the last move, check, and captured pieces. You can also save or load games in the widespread PGN (portable game notation) format, or save positions in FEN format (Forsyth-Edwards notation). You can even import and export games to multi-game PGN files or export games to HTML format.
But Chess-7’s features don’t stop there. You can also print game listings or set piece letters and customize the key map for exporting positions as text. Overall, Chess-7 offers a wide range of options to help you improve your chess skills and enjoy the game to its fullest potential.
