Chess Titans; comes with Vista, is an excellent game.
As far as I can tell, it's not available for XP.
Anyone got any ideas about a good alternative, for XP?

You cant install the Vista Version in XP, but This one here (http://brutal-chess.en.softonic.com/) looks close - and it says its 3D - never tried it - but may later :D

Edited: just installed it - its OK but only give 1 angle - If you go to the Main Site, Top Left logo and type in 3D Chess in the search, it brings up several others , both free and Evaluation.

Just installed it too. Right click on the board and drag to change viewing angle. I find response to moving pieces to be erratic. :(

I did too. Actually a bit too erratic to be useful.

That's a good point:eek:

On board graphics; VIA/S3G.
From time-to-time, I've thought about upgrading, but never really seriously thought about it, as I'm not a gamer......until now!
