This latest version includes both MS DOS and Windows versions for the 5 Tutorial steps program and the Chessica works on Windows 3.X, '95, '98, NT4 and 2000-compatible machines. Both programs run directly from your CD.

TASC CHESSICA FOR WINDOWS The chess engine of Chessica is written by one of the best chess programmers in the world and has been optimized to evaluate an unbeaten number of positions per second. Chessica became World Computer Chess Champion in Hong Kong, May 1995 by defeating amongst others, Deep Blue, the chess program from IBM running on a super computer. The strength of the program (around ELO 2350) was also illustrated with a sweet victory over World Chess champion Gary Kasparov during a rapid chess tournament in Munich!
Chessica for Windows is in four languages (English, German, French and Dutch) and has unlimited number of installs; runs from the CD.
Chessica has been designed to suit the needs of the experienced chess player as well as the beginner. The Chessica screen layout is completely adjustable. All windows, including the chessboard, are resizable. Just open a second game on the screen for reference, remove clocks and other windows for a "bare" chessboard or have the maximum information on your screen. However the Chessica screen is arranged, everything remains clear and functional.
