wow, again a classic of CM staff: never, ever give any relevant information.

so now I'm asking only to the customers, is this a real "patch" that fixes all those bugs, or is it just all those unnecessary mini games and sets?

When you install it you can see what files are added or changed. Besides new sets and new skin, the game.exe, gu.exe, gs.ini, one or two of the dll files and two josh tutorials were changed. Also 3 or 4 wav files were added/changed and they changed one of the files in all the default skins. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

thanks to you both, it's worth downloading then.

Hi renatojr,

even though your problem is not very clear to me, but I think it has to do with the size or the DPI of you windows' fonts, try to change the size or the DPI of your fonts in : Diplay control panel \ Setting \ Advanced, and see what it does. I hope this fixes it for u.

http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gifThank you, This is what I have done to allow the new chess sets and sharing this for those having a tuff time deciding and how to http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif I created a new folder and named it (whatever you like)making sure it do not conflict with game, placed it in CM grandmaster edition directory. Then mmoved the five .dat files (chessets ) I have chose to remove and placed them in the new folder.This way if I like I may exchange for chess sets witout breaking the 128 sets allowed as mentioned above. The five .dat files I chose were(2d)B0_Shogi_style.dat, (2d)0B0_Shogi_style_playing_black.dat, (3d)A0R_Staunton II enamel II.dat, (3d)A4_Cartoon.dat,(3d)A4_Cartoon CL03.dat. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif These sets were to me hard to use and and also one was duplicate just a shade difference and the cartoons were too plain as a 3d. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif Of course you may choose whatever .dat files you like and also the new folder can be used for any xtra .dat files (Chess sets) that you may wantt to exchange or place back in future. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Not sure if this is new to this version or not, but we no longer have to keep the DVD in the disc drive. And there was much rejoicing... yay.

I never downloaded the first patch, if I'm going to install the second one, do I need to install the first one?

Hi, EdwardsNH.
You should let the Autopatch System(gu.exe) to download the patch. In any case it will detect the second patch on the patch server and download it.

At first, I got this problem when I was installing the patch 1.02, but after I changed the language to English from Chinese (PRC) {under the options "Advanced" of Regional and Language Options}, the patch 1.02 can be installed. hope this can help.

hi, does this solve that problem with promoting a pawn on a game, then saving the game as a .pgn, then opening that .pgn file, replaying the game until the promotion, and then the piece that the pawn gets promoted does not show on the board?

sorry for the long question! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
and thanks in advance!

That particular problem is still there. I hope they fix that in the next patch.

A work around exists - you go to the next move after the promotion then just click on the move where the promotion happened and the queen (or other piece) now shows up.
