Does this game still work on the Kindle 3?

Post by v4cation » Sun Aug 21, 2016 9:49 pm

I've installed properly, and can start a new game, but there seems to be no way to actually move the pieces without a touch screen, so the clock just keeps ticking while nothing moves. I've tried all the buttons on the keyboard but there seems to be no way to move the cursor to the board. Does this mean the kindle 3 is no longer supported? If so, can someone provide me a link to a version that does work? If not, can someone explain how it works? The link to the manual is broken and the wiki has no explanation of the controls.

Sorry if this has been answered elsewhere, I had a quick look but could not discover anything.

Thanks!

Same for me. Would love to use it, but seems impossible. Any ideas?

Chess is not working for devices without touchscreen. Sorry.

I see, it's a pity. Maybe you should change "All the models starting from Kindle 3" on http://pbchess.vlasovsoft.net/en/ then.
