Opps I forgot the message?! Lol.
I've had Deep Fritz 8 for a bit now and it's nice. But I can't understand the difficulty level. The range is 1640-2400 (or I can "unleash" it to 3022.
These must be some made up ratings though because at 1640 it plays like a 900. I'm having a hard time figuring out what rating i should play. I'm normally betwe ...[text shortened]... nk so. I rather have the right rating, then the bogus ones on fritz. Whats up with it?

I have Fritz 7 -- bought it a few months ago at Target for $9.99. It doesn't come with a manual, and I am having a helluva time figuring out the darn thing. I can play a game against it, but most of the other features are enshrouded in mystery. Does Fritz normally come with a manual? How does one learn how to make use of its various features? Thanks.
