Chess Titans!? WTF!?

Posted: 02-01-2009, 10:08 PM

Ok this may be just me
I have been trying to play Chess titans on level 1 for 3 days now wit
the same result every time
I will play and get the opposing king into check. Makes no differenc
what color the CPU uses. But instead of moving his king out of check h
will capture my piece
I do not have a problem with this
My problem is , when I am in check and I am able to make the move t
capture the opposing piece I am not allowed to do so. ( no , I am no
checkmated
and yes this happens every time. It makes no sense. there is no optio
to change that I can find. Seems the CPU is playing by a different se
of rules
Why is this
Very frustrating that I am not being allowed to beat the cpu

So, you're asking why you are loosing in chess when you put an opponent
into check?

I think it's you, but I am going to have to break down your message.

Yes, the king can capture chess pieces, just like any other piece on the
board. If you get the king in check by moving next to him unless you want
to get the piece taken, then you better have another piece covering that
piece. Then the King can't capture your piece and he'll be forced to move
away, unless another piece decides to take whatever piece you put
adjecent to the king.

Whew...

That's because there's another piece covering the piece you're trying to
capture with your king.

Lets see if I can draw an example, because I don't know chess
coordinates.

OK, this is unrealistic, but your king is in check by an opponent's pawn,
with an opponents rook two squares above the pawn.

You can't use your king to take the pawn because that does NOT move your
king out of danger (Rook can capture King). Your only choice would be to
move the king, left, up, up-right, or right to get out of check. (You
should move your king left, because the pawn would become a queen if he
moved up another spot).

I don't think that it's that. I think it's that you don't fully
understand the rules of the game. It's OK, I still don't get that En
Pasant move, or when you use it. Chess isn't really something you learn
in 1 or 2 games, it kindda takes a lifetime. Ask Kasperski, or Fischer.

I can only surmise that you keep playing the same game over and over
again, and keep getting into the same situation. A lot of chess programs
are guilty of playing the same game over and over again if you make the
same moves each time.

If you're still not sure, write up your chess moves and i'll see what I
can do.

Lots of people have cried foul with chess titans, I don't think it's that
chess titans is a bad program, it's just that people don't fully
understand the neuances of chess and tend to cry foul when something
happens that they don't understand.

I need to take a FRAPS movie of this to visually show this
I have a full understanding of the game and how the pieces mov
including
"en passant" (in passing)
The problem I am having is, I will put the cpu's King into check wher
he needs to either move out of check or capture the piece that has hi
in check
Now he moves and captures my piece. becuase there is nothing behind o
withen movement of being right back into check
Now put me in the same situation, same exact setup opposite th
opponent
he move his pawn for example and puts me into check
I can either move out of check or caputre his piece. there is nothin
putting me back into check
I can move my king one position any direction
The problem is I cannot capture the pawn. Only move out of check
Now can someone explain this to me without telling me that I do no
know how to play the game of chess please? Not trying to sound bras
here
I truely want to know why this is happening

Couldn't tell you. Chessmaster the 10th edition is available for $19.99
at Best Buy, comes with a TON of extras. A great program for anyone into
Chess as you clearly are Mr. "en pissant".

Just as I figured.
Joe is a JACKASS!.
Umm yeah..... It turns out there is a problem with my program.
So you can officially go be of no help somewhere else.
I am not going to take the bait from here on out.
So find someone else to have a big E-dick contest with.
Oh and while you are busy trying to think of something witty to type
back as you wipe greasy cheeto fingers on your wife beater shirt from
the relative comfort of your mothers basement. That maybe it should have
occurred to you to have thought of a better zinger other than...
"Mr. en pissant." ?
Especially considering I am not replying to this thread any longer.
See how that works? I got the last word in.
Hope you life goes better from here on out.

Ouch, that hurt.

Well considering I wasn't charging you for the assistance, I'm not
exactly sure what you are complaining about. I mean, take it for what
it's worth, $0.00. Either it helps you or it doesn't. No need to be such
a jerk about it.

Aw, come on.
> So find someone else to have a big E-dick contest with.
But, there is no one else Omek. Don't go.

Well I'll be the first to say I'm sorry for the pissant comment, and for
assuming you were simply ignorant of the rules of chess.

And, they aren't Cheetos, they are pringles salt and vinegar.

....and mom says hello.
