PreviousPage 2 of 2

Hello Graham,

I tried your DLL driver with both Arena ad Lucaschess and the installation is easy.

With your driver the Certabo board is very, very responsive.

You did a great job.

Thanks a lot.



I have released a new version of BearChess:


Now with support of the Certabo Bluetooth module.

A short video show how it works:



Try bearchess this week but with all engines when i make my first move the bearchess closes maybe crash and log file last line is my move nothing more, is there an way to see why the app closes? The app closes even without board connected.


can you send me the log file?

Thank you!


I found the error and released a new version.

Many thanks to Kim for patiently helping me to find the error.



if you like to play with your Certabo chessboard on Free Internet Chess Server (FICS) you can do it now with the latest BearChess release

The easiest way to give it a try, connect as guest and click on the "blitz game" button.
