Mate solving and analysis

Top  Previous  Next


Searching mates


Problemist can find mates up to 6 moves ahead in direct mode, or 5 moves in other modes.

It knows all the chess game particular rules, including pawn movements, castlings, en passant, pawn promotions and sub-promotions.

Before launching any search, the program checks whether the position is valid.

Warning: The number of moves adopted by the program depends on the figure entered in the Problem Type dialog box (default 2 moves).

The search progress is displayed on the status bar.

A warning message appears if no solution can be found or if the search is prematurely interrupted (by pressing the [Esc] key).



Once the search is completed, the program analyzes the solution and streamlines all the variations. The analysis progress is displayed in the status bar.
