    i think it would be fun and challengeing if RHP could somehow lisence a chess computer to play as a user on this site somthing like fritz, deep blue or somthing for subs to play agenst to test themselves

    and if it had diferent setting mayb you could have one rated 1200 1300 up to its highest setting..and if it had a tutoring mode possably add it talking to the users suggesting whatever it sugests in that mode

    this would probably be a little complex to put in but i think it would be nice

    what do others think?

    There's an engine of sorts available here:

    http://www.timeforchess.com/rival/download/download.php

    http://www.redhotpawn.com/rival/download/download.php

    etc etc

    I'm not sure it does what you want though?

    As a CC site I'm not sure your idea should be adopted, as there's alot of tension over the use of engines, so to introduce one could muddy the waters.

    well i was thinking one a player could play on this site as an opponent but i know introducing a computer could make some bigger isues and tempt some people to cheat... i suppose

    If someone wants to play a game against an engine, then there are plenty of free ones they can download from the Internet.

    But surely playing against humans is a lot more interesting?
