Delfi was a software suite composed of three programs to help your training in chess.
Delfi Trainer was a chess engine for Fritz, Shredder, Arena and Winboard. The
main feature was to emulate accurately an amateur human player, in the
range 1000..2300 ELO. The level is independent on the CPU speed.
Chess on a PC monitor? I always considered it a problem. 2D diagrams are
fine of course, by the way when I return to the real chessboard i get
confused. 3D views are useless for me, the perspective disturbs instead
This program, based on a “2.5D” chessboard, was used to test positions like combinations, opening
lines and endgame studies. It supported the PGN and EPD files.
To download Delfi for Winboard/UCI (use it within: Fritz, Shredder, Arena
or Winboard GUI) click: delfi.zip (750 kb).
At easy levels, this version can be set to 1000 ELO, which is very nice
for beginners. This version can also be set to 1 or 2 CPUs.
The Delfi source code is available as well. Please read carefully
the license agreement. More info.
