Corel Chess Corel / Focus Multimedia Ltd 1995

This is a multimedia chess program based on the chess engine Socrates by Don Dailey and Larry Kaufman. The Corel Chess project was lead by Alexander G. M. Smith, who further developed the GUI with animation player spooling sound and video off the CD-ROM and draws it in the 3D world using the Windows regular GDI and Corel's off-screen bitmap drawing code. Corel Chess features TCP-IP play that allows two users to play each other and send comments to each other without having to access a Web site. Great interactive play, dynamic views and sizzling graphics combined with exquisite 3D modelled and rotatable boards produce a truly awe-inspiring multimedia chess game. Play the computer, have the computer play against itself or alternatively stage your own championship with opponents over the Internet, via a modem or over a network.
