I have plenty of games that are of the same vintage (or older) as Chessmaster 9000 that are still supported for online play. I don't think I want to find out the reason for them stopping support - I can't imagine Chessmaster requires the same sort of server hardware that something like an RTS does so I don't expect that it's the cost of the 'server farms' necessary to run the (10's or 100's? of) games of Chessmaster 9000.
I'll have to see if my Fritz still works for online play so I can play my brother. Bummer.
Again, thanks for the response (that's a serious thank you, not a sarcastic one!)
