Live games (demo)

Hello to all.

I need two chess players who would accept to play a demo game using the "blitz" time control : 2 hours + 2 hours / 40 moves.

The game would start today, 2007 April 7 at 16:00 (server clock), thanks to respond to this post if you're interested. Thus everyone will see the last server improvements that will appear with money games.. (that should start next week, a new delay :/)

Among the new features :

- Real time clocks
- Auto refresh for all & auto redirecting for the players
- Pop up windows to warn the players "it's your turn"
- Links for live games in comments on each page.

Thanks for your help !

I'm willing to try out the new "blitz" time control. Out of curiousity, are these games rated? And if so, are you going to have more than one tier of rating, or do all time controls count towards the same rating?

Hi Jason, thanks for helping :)

No blitz/lightning games will be rated, ratings wouldn't be coherent if so. These time controls will be used for money games only.

At last there will be only 1 rating, the correspondence chess one.

Another taker for this demo game ?

Lightning demo game

Finally it was a lightning (time control 30 min + 1 min / move) game.

A lot of thanks to Catalin for playing this nice game... another one with this funny thematic opening 1.Nf3 2.Ng1 3.Nf3 4.Ng1

All seems ok, but it would be better if the page isn't refreshed until the position change on the board. I'll make some improvements this way.

Sorry, I think our time zones are vastly different. I'll be online now for about the next 12 hours straight.

No problem Jason :) .. I enjoyed playing this game. Maybe another time.

Once more, two chess players are welcome to play a demo game using the "lightning" time control : 30 minutes + 1 minute / move. Thanks to respond here if you're interested.

Now the viewer page checks positions every 5 seconds for players, 10 sec. for observers WITHOUT refreshing itself until the position changed.

Thanks for your help !
