Problem Type

Top  Previous  Next


Properly identifying the problem type is paramount as Problemist uses this information to determine how many moves are necessary to resolve the problem. It also determines the problems mode.



In case the type of problem has not been properly identified or is not supported, Problemist will attempt to resolve a direct two mover (default setting).



Direct: Default mode. Seeks direct mates (up to 6 moves)
Helpmate: Seeks helpmates (up to 5 moves)
Selfmate: Seeks selfmates (up to 5 moves)
Reflexmate: Seeks reflexmates (up to 5 moves).


Problemist does not yet resolve draw problems nor problems with a maximum nor series mates/draws. However, it allows you to enter the corresponding text.
