hi there,

i got a copy of cm 10th demo on a magazine cd and installed it. i thereafter tied to connect and play online.

firstly i tried at home and i was able to connect to the online server and i was even able to chat to some1 online but as soon as i tried to play a game or watch a game i got an error message like "unable to connect" this is after the message that said starting game. i there after tried to download pach v1.02 which i did and also installed. however i still got the same error mess.

today at work i downloaded the hole v1.02 demo and tried again but here i can not even connect to the server i get the timeout error mess.

btw at work i connect to the internet through a lan and i do not know wherther there is any fire-wall but what i can say is that msn-chess and ICC works well from here

i am also interested in buying cm10th (if online-play can be sorted out) plz let me know where or how i can buy it as i live in Johannesburg South Africa and how i can make use of the discount (i have cm8000) if possible

thx
fanie

You're not alone with your problem that's for sure. There will most likely be a solution on the problem soon. Until then, this thread might help you a little:

A few player I have played online got the same message as you when trying to play a game, with the time limit expired or unable to connect etc. But when they played as black they could join a game just fine, only when playing white they got that problem. Dont ask me why or how they could only play as black, but it's worth try at least.

About buying the program then UBisofts online store only delivers to the US or Canada. So that might not be an option unless you have some family who can pass it on.
Otherwise you can buy it from Chesscentral http://www.chesscentral.com/chessmaster-10th-edition.htm They deliver to South Africa with a small shipping rate of $ 7.95 I think.

Eb games games http://www.ebgames.com/ebx/product/242814.asp can ship to South Africa also but for a shipping rate of $ 53.00 I think.

I'd go (did go) with Chesscentral http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
