Here's an idea, Although i havn't really thought about the technical aspect of it --its still in the rough stages.
basically i'm thinking of some sort of marco - which, when programed automatically moves on your behalf.
Imagine you have a Game where you have a forced sequence of mate in 3 - you have worked out Black only has 3 moves, 2 of which completly illogical - so you know he will play - Kh4. and then log off for 24 hrs, it could take 3-4 days to actually finish.
so i was thinking wouldn't it be good if you have some sort of automatic move function....
you tell it -
"IF 1Kh4 Play Qh3+" - (IF Kh4 isn't played then nothing happens next time you log in its "your move" as usual)
**You have to tell it what to play-- nothing/nobody plays for you**
as soon as they play Kh4 the "Computer" instantly makes the move it was programmed to do - Qh3+ .while your openant is still online and they might decide to reply, thus speeding up the process....
it would be even better if you could "programme" it for 3-4 moves ahead.....
thoughts?? crap idea? already been thought of? don't understand what i'm saying??
