Here is a photo of the Chessmaster Screen Saver running on XP.



Not bad for a 13 year old program.

Here is an easy fix for the Chessmaster screensaver text issue: Click START - CONTROL PANEL -  Open FONTS, drag the Webdings font icon to the desktop. When you restart the screen saver the text is readable.

I have a screen saver from old Chessmaster software.  This is a super cool screen saver with brilliancy games of the Grandmasters being displayed and played out on the screen.  The only problem is that I have somehow wiped out the font used, so all that I see for text of the moves is gibberish.  Does anyone know what font is being used or where I can download another copy of this screen saver?


Hello apologist,

I found a version of the screen saver on gamespot.com. Unfortunately, the screen saver was written for Windows 95 and when loaded on an XP machine the text is gibberish.

You need to be a member of GameSpot to download it but the membership is free. Here is the description and link:

Chessmaster screen saver

This screen saver will play historic chess games on your desktop. This file also includes the Chessmaster desktop themes
