TI-Chess Adds 89 Titanium Support
Posted by Michael on 11 October 2004, 02:11 GMT

[TI-Chess]One of the best games ever, TI-Chess, has been updated to v4.11. This version adds support for the TI-89 Titanium. For those of you who haven't downloaded this great program before, it is a fully loaded chess game for the 89, 92+, and Voyage 200. Just try to beat the AI - especially on the highest setting. There's a reason it's ranked #2 on our top rated list.

I suck too, but I use the puzzles to keep me occupied.

I beat the calculator regularly. I usually get tripped up on Lv. 5 just because my batteries run out! I was wondering if this new version had any improvements over the old version and would it work on the old 89?

There are many improvements over older versions (such as optimizations introduced by the newer versions of TIGCC).

Also, this program will, of course, still run on the old 89's. This release just adds Ti-89 Titanium compatibility.

I think I might have tried a hard level once but it was realy slow, that's probably partly why your baterys died.

Only two problems hinder me from playing this great game now:

1. I only have a z80 calc. I have to wait for another dreary 9 months for my TI-89TI to come. Though I can play it on VTI *wink wink*. (I'm EVALUATING how good this game is on VTI, so it's not illegal.)

2. I don't know how to play chess.

Can anyone help me with problem #2?

There is a nice ion chess game for the 83+. Try it. It is hard. The UI could use some improvement, but otherwise, I like it.

Your best bet would probably be to buy a book on chess. If that doesn't seem like a good idea, you could probably make do with a website. I have a pretty good book titled "How Not to Play Chess."

In my oppinion the first was the best, followed by the second then lastly the third. The last was too differnt from the first if you ask me. The second was a good blend of the two, adding more martial arts and swords n' stuff but cutting down on firearms

I actually have an old working version ("v4.00/e") that I download immediately after recieving my titanium (early july). If I recall correctly, I had to apply some patch, but its fine now. Still, I downloaded the new version because it is compressed (the patch I ran on tichess decompressed it). It is a great program... even at the easiest setting the calculator posts quite a challenge! You know it is pathetic when you are losing even after playing for a few minutes while the calculator has only been thinking for 15 seconds

I think that that may not be posible because gostbuster makes a program that it has patched not able to be sent to anything but a 89T so it may not work(I tried but I think that it failed could be user error). I got a beta version that was compatible but for a while it had a bug in the menu.
