Ещё одна программа игры в шахматы. Программа уникальна тем, что вы можете советоваться с компьютером (если вы играете с ним) о том или ином ходе. Он комментирует ваши ходы и сообщает своё мнение о ваших умственных способностях. На английском, правда.
Вы можете записывать свои игры. Можете сыграть партию, которую играет сейчас, на другой доске с тем, чтобы проанализировать все дальнейшие свои ходы.
Ниже приведена инструкция игры на английском языке.

White figures can be detected through the use of capital letters. Continuous following blanks are defined as numbers while row changes are marked as an /. Please note, that Chess Genius cannot handle searches using this format and, as well, doesn’t support comments or variations.

A level defines, how much time can be spent by the players. Much alike a human player, Shredder 4.0 will play the stronger, the more time he has to compute. In the "Level" menue you can choose between predefined and programmable time levels.
- The five levels only cut Shredder`s computing time. The shown times should be taken as average.
- In the tournament mode both players are allowed to spend 2 hours time for the 1st 40 moves at max. After this each player has one more hour time for the next 20 moves.
- The next three levels define a total time for the game. Of course this is meant for both players.
- In the "easy levels" Shredder 4.0 will compute rather short and will "miss" a mate. Level 5 of the easy levels is the strongest within this mode
- Using the mode "Fischer clock" at total time will be difined for the entire game in advance ( startup time ). After each move each player will get a time bonus ( increment )
- In the "Blitz" mode a total time for the entire game can be defined
- Using the level" exact time/move" Shredder 4.0 will respect this under all circumstances. This level is rather dedicated to test positions than to normal gameplay.
- With "fixed depth" you can pre define, how many plys deep Shredder shall compute
- In the "infinite" level Shredder 4.0 will compute until he has reached his max. horizon of a 99 ply depth or a mate is recognized. The setting "analysis" should be 1st choice, if you wish to let Shredder 4.0 analyze unlimited
- "User levels" allow you to set up to three time controls during the upcoming game. The 3rd time control will only appear if you have defined No 2 before. With the "all" command option you fix the time control to be prior for the entire rest of the game
Within the "analysis" mode no level is activated, because of no pre defined, fixed time. If you intend to activate a level while using the "analysis" mode the program will change into the "normal" mode again.
Ну и так далее.
