As well as playing against one of the four computer opponents with varying difficulty levels, you can also play chess online and against email opponents. The email game integrates transparently with any email client and does not require any additional setup.
Chess Commander can also be used to view chess game databases in the standard PGN format. A selection of game databases, containing well over 10,000 games is available on the site. Chess Commander can also create PGN files, allowing you to keep a record of past games.
In addition to those in the installer, registered users get access to a constantly growing selection of computer opponents, boards and voices - as free downloads. Users are also encouraged to submit boards and voices of their own, which are made available on chesscommander.com.
