Re: Purchase of London System II eBook

I purchased the 100 Essential Endings an hour or two ago and got the e-mail. I'm a Mac User so it doesn't work. It still doesn't show as available to me on https://bookupchess.customerhub.net/systems. How long should this take? It should be updated immediately after your purchase. You do need to lo...

Re: IPad COW

Yep, you must pay for iPad.

I'd love to give some sort of discount coupon that can be used in the Apple app store but Apple has no such thing.

Re: Free ebook

What you are seeing is the backsovled symbol. That symbol is calculated by the optimum lines for both sides, based on the assessments of the final position in each line. It cannot edited.

Re: Free ebook

Is there any free ebook for COW 2016. I am tempted to create one and share to community. Is this OK Mike? Is there a free COW 2016 where an ebook can be viewed? There is not currently a free version of COW 2016. Perhaps I should make a free app to do just that. Creating a free ebook would be quite ...

Re: Interface options (backburner)

Ah, ebooks keep track of the line played so that when you open the book later it reads the "bookmark" and restores the last played line. There isn't a way to save individual bookmarks though. The app assumes that named positions are endgames or tactics puzzles that don't need a line of pla...

Re: Is this a bug ?

COW uses the same code on all platforms so if it allows castling through check in isolated cases, it will allow it in all versions.

Probably no harm in this bug. It's rare anyone tries to make an illegal move with COW though. :)
