Certabo software version 3.3 has been released


Certabo software version 3.3 has been released!

Since today the Certabo software has introduced another the cool feature and allows to play against your vintage chess roms on the solid wood Certabo chessboard using Messchess emulator!

MessChess emulator is awesome piece of software which allows to emulate your preferred vintage rom. Now the Certabo board will automatically be aligned with the the Mess emultator graphical interface of each rom.

What you need is just to copy the roms inside the engine directory and it will be seen like a standard engines.

A special mention and thank to Sandro and Franz who developed and keep developing the MessChess and CBEmu giving possibility to all chess lovers to continue playing against their preferred historycal chess computer.

But release 3.3 integrates also other cool features. Now the clock has been added,  you can now play on time + increment as you wish, and also general improvement has been made as resynchronising of the chessboard which allows you to freerly disconnect the usb cable and cut the power to the chessboard at anytime. The chessboard will be automatically resynchronised with the software and the game will just continue from where left as soon as the usb will be reconnected.

Download the new release from the download area at this link. Watch the video.
