Hello Mike,


Quote from: Mike Watters on March 27, 2006, 07:31AM   

I would also like a copy of the Steinitz manual if anyone has this.

Robert I do have the Steinitz key overlay and box.

In Germany we say: "Schon mal besser als nichts!" (already better than nothing!  )

If you can't photograph it, could you maybe tell me the letterings on the keys (i mean these keys, which are different from a Sargon or Sandy module)

I know something about some of the features: e.g. when you hit 'Level' and then 'Best', it shows the score.

For sure, you already know, that 'Level' shows the depth!

And it has a user-programmable level: press 'Level' and then 'Time'; now you are asked for 'First Period Moves' (always press 'Restore' to confirm your entries) and 'First Period Minutes', the same for 'Remaining' moves and minutes and the number of the current move. When finished, press 'Enter'; when you hit 'Restore' instead, then the procedure comes up again!

I only have the keyboard overlays from Sargon and Sandy; so i don't know, whether the key-letterings are the same on Steinitz!

Not bad compared to the previous modules; now you can set up a countdown-level! (i like the 30min/game matches very much)

I can do it the same way, like i set up Resurrection for an Active Chess match (25 mins for the first 99 moves and 5 mins for another 40 or 50 moves)

On the back of the box is a detailed explanation of the features. With this information you can work out most things. I tried to photograph this but it did not come out quite well enough to read. Let me know if you want a photocopy.

Does it have so many features? Is it more, than you can write here?

Anyhow; try another photo (box and overlay); i have a good screen here! And i am short-sighted, so i can come very close to it, to read!

Doesn't your camera have a macro mode? Your 'repair' pictures are looking very good!


thank you very much,
Robert

P.S.: I know a guy, who has the manual, but he has no scanner!  >:(

Every good collector should have a scanner!

Hello,


the topic says it all; for the Secondo, the levels would be enough...

Of course, it doesn't have to be a hardcopy; a scan or readable photos of the pages are absolutely ok! 


thank you very much!

Robert
