    Predictive Moves….

    I thought I was aware of a rumor several months ago that a feature allowing a player to set up a response to an assumed move was being worked on. Meaning I open 1. e4 and set it that if 1… c5 then RHP will automatically move 2. Nf3 for me.

    Any word on that?

    The term at RHP is "Conditional Moves". It is already up and running as a beta test for a test team. I think it works quite well.

    When it will go live, Russ only know.

    I didn't double check, but it seems like it's almost there for many months now...

    No, not at all. I actually made a humorous comment and withdrew it so that I wouldn't offend the admins. I was going to make some comment about how long the implementation might take. Sorry.

    You can't.
    For months, if not over a year, Russ told us he's working on it and I understood some people had the opportunity to test it, but it's unfortunately not there.
    Really unfortunate, as it could speed up boring ends of games quite a bit.

    From what I could read, I have the feeling Russ tries to make it too complex, where you could even program several alternatives, and you corresponding move(s). I think most of us would be really happy with a simple thing: if the opponent does this, play that for me. Period.

    Perhaps Russ should somehow force more people to register and pay to play, so he could afford another developer....

    Send feedback requesting to become a beta tester.

    Then, instructions can be found here...

    It's not great in it's current state, TBH.

    Good thought, Nordlys, but it also needs to include his home address. This would greatly facilitate the beatings.



    EDIT: LMAO at that image--Russ getting a daily smack-down from yet another knuckle-dragger who doesn't understand the en passant rule.
