Game Viewer Test

Here is an innovation that took a little while to implement. I was looking for an appropriate and easy to use game viewer and only now did I find one thanks to Andrew Ooi.

In fact, our gratitude should be directed first of all to Robert Ambalong. It was he who originally programmed the small application, Chess Genie, for the Rooty Hill CC. So thanks Robert!

This post is just for testing purposes. Hope it works well. Do let me know of problems. What better game to feature for the first time than that game 10 win by Kramnik.

that's a sweet viewer and, at my work, most java viewers don't work, so this is a nice change.

Excellent viewer! Works fine for me - I cannot get the R button to do anything though (is it meant to?)

The Closet Grandmaster said...

Yeah, I think it is meant to reset. I'll have to ask Andrew for a fix.

Thanks.

But you are using the old ChessGenie. The latest one make use of PHP to view games from PGN file. By the way you can drag and drop chess pieces anytime for alternate move - this anylysis mode is unique for ChessGenie (not found in any game viewer). Manual move is validated too - piece return to its original square when invalid move is made. To return to normal viewing move, simply press the reset button. You can send me email by pressing the Chessgenie Icon that comes up when you press the "I" button.
