What will you get when you buy original software ? Pirate copy also perform the same as per original ? anyway i leave to you to find the answer.My first original copy of chess software was Fritz 11.During the period i did not fully utilised the available premium membership for the ori buyers.I did not realise until it was too late that i had a chance to extend playchess membership by playing online tournament.Premium member will be able to access anykind of broadcast, simul with title players except for private lesson.
This is what you get when you buy the original sofware.
1.Original fritz 12 is 50.00 euro (including 1 year premium membership)
2.Basic serial number 30.00 euro (some room of broadcast you can't enter)
3.Constant update of your software.
4.Chat and send email to other member or guest.
Of course the choice is yours but if you are thinking to be a paid member at playchess buy the ori dvd.
Secondly my other licensed software is the swiss manager pairing program.I think that was my meaningfull decision in term of software aplication ever made by me.As as licensed user i can upload all the results almost instantly to chess-results.com.I am among the first malaysian to upload results there.Back then they are some people who think that uploading the result is not wise or rather not a Fide rated events.To me a lot of people out there who are very eager to know the current standing or who is playing who and etc.You need to made the infomation available to the public via internet.
