    Would it be an idea to create an option to make optional moves on forehand,.and make them final if a certain move is realy played by opponent ?

    Provisional moves would be a excellent idea!

    Like "I play Qd1-Qd8# provisionally until you realize that you can take the queen by Kxd8 in that case I change my move to a more modest a2-a3. But If you don't see that you actually can take my queen, I let the move be permanent."

    I like the idea of provisional moves.

    Why not just play a bot and use a bot to play for you and stop by from time to time to make sure they are still playing.

    Surely that's what unrated games are for?


    (Gee, this player's smarter than me. I really didn't expect the stupid dork to take my queen...)

    Because then the bot will do the thinking for you?

    unrated games only.... you could act like you saw a bad move at any time and change your move if once your opponenet capitalizes
    I don't follow - wouldn't these open a door to cheating if in rated games? 😲

    say you are opening with e4 - there are several possible common variations on that opening - you may already know what move you will make depending on which variation the opponent chooses - gi-gah!

    you tell the program which move you would make if the opponent respond with e5 and what move you would make if the opponent respond with Nd6 and so on - so that when your turn comes, and if the opponent has responded with one of your forseen moves, the program will make the move for you right away - ga-goh!

    So what about conditional moves Russ? I know at least three corr chess sites with this feature (not going to advertise them here) and it works great, saves a lot of time, we are waiting!

    7 days since Russ said they were coming? You don't know how things work around here, do you?

    People ask for things, Russ replies that they are on his to-do list, loads of different new things get released, people bump their threads, 6 months later the new feature arrives.
