The Monte Carlo, which is similar to the Academy, may have the Elo feature as well, but I have not checked on this.

Yes, the Monte Carlo IV/Super Mondial 2 has a Schroeder-program, but it does not have this feature.

Not to mix it up with the Monte Carlo/Super Mondial, which has a Morsch-program...

Hi Walter

I agree with Alain, Ed Schröeder's Mephisto programs are a good choice and some do exactly what you want. The Academy, which is a small auto sensory wooden board, can play at any setting between 1000 and 2000 Elo according to the manual. Actually it is rated Elo 1940 nowadays.

The Polgar modules can be set to play at anywhere between 1200 and 2000 Elo (rating now 1968 Elo). They can be fitted into a Modular, Exclusive or Munchen board. They have a good two line LCD display with plenty of information available.

The Monte Carlo, which is similar to the Academy, may have the Elo feature as well, but I have not checked on this.

All these machines date from the 1988/89 period and I would recommend any of them.

At least Ed Schröeder's programs have such feature (Milano, Polgar (not 100% sure because I don't yet have one  ), Risc 1MB).
But the Elo range varies with the programs, the Risc cannot be set under 1700... (which is of course over-evaluated as all machines' elo)

Hi from Surrey BC Canada: This is a great place to visit for information. I am new to this site. Can anybody please recommend what chess computer I should buy. I am looking for a unit that has a adjustable ELO. I have a Fidelity Chess Master 12(wooden unit that I bought brand new in 1984)  that is nice but all of the settings for levels are time settings. Is there a unit where I can set a rating of say 1200ELO and then set it at at 1500ELO , etc. If anybody wants to sell a unit to me with adjustable ELO setting please let me know what you have. I use to play a lot of chess between 1975 to 1986 but then I stopped for the last 20 years(I am 45 years old and now I want to get back into playing again) Thank you everbody for your time and advice. Walter Novak
