THE PROBLEM
Playing chess on a PC monitor is not easy, you have two choices:

  • 2-D representation. I consider it the best mode, the chessboard is clear, it's easy and quick to adapt to it. The only problem (maybe just for myself) is that I lose confidence with the real chessboard which I use in chess tournaments and against friends at home.

  • 3-D representation. I never succeeded to play with it. The perspective was always too strong, I had difficulties in seeing pieces and lines.

    MY SOLUTION
    I realized that what I wanted was a 3D-like chessboard with a very faint perspective, to see the chessboard almost as a diagram, and high quality pieces, viewed from the same point of view of chess tournaments.

    DEMO VERSION
    To download a demo version click: delfigui.zip  (2.8 Mb).

    The position trainer is limited to the first eight positions of any PGN/EPD file.
    The playing program is limited to 1000 ELO so it's quite weak for club players, by the way it's very useful if you are teaching chess to absolute beginners and children.

    The full version can be ordered here, the cost is 20 euro.
