Built for Windows 7

“Before you read the bug report…”

MasterChess 8000 is updated occasionally to stay current with new engines, best practices, new versions of Windows and the great ideas from those who use it every day.

The vast majority of software publishers keep their bug list private so as not to discourage new purchases.

I publish our bug list because:

I personally appreciate it when a vendor tells me about any known problems for any software that I want to purchase.

I think chess players are smart enough to realize that all sophisticated software has bugs, and that listing them publicly is my way of making sure you know it’s being worked on.
