You attach it to a powertrain, put petrol or diesel in it, and away you go! πŸ˜‰

An engine is just a computer program that plays chess. You can play games against them or use them to analyse positions.

There are loads of sites in which you can download free engines. Just type 'free chess engine' into the Google search box.

You also need to download a graphical user interface (GUI) such as Arena or Winboard and follow the instructions to install the engine. Also if you wanted to play games against the engine, you would need to download an opening book and install that.

It's not as complicated as it sounds, but could be a bit daunting if you don't know much about computers.

The easiest option is to buy a commercial chess program from a shop! The software will just install in a few minutes in the same way as any other software. A few mouse clicks and you're done!

on tv last night they announced the new compressed air powered car which is going to revolutionise transport, it literally runs on air.
seemed really good, but i worried about the thing they failed to mention, - what runs the compressor which tops up the car?

Keep in mind that you are supposedly not allowed to use them at this site.

Your interest is very suspicious. I'm going to report you and have all your games investigated!

Dear Afeliz, Why should I use engines? I am not going to fool my brain to use engines for on here. Well, I will appreciate the hard work of the administrator anyway to will to check all my games as I have never used it at all and I don't even have it on my Laptop. Why should people use engines while they have got brain to think? You can see all my games, full of blunders! πŸ™‚
