In real life, we would define a stylish cafe as the place where people come for more than just a good coffee. Something about the ambiance must make one feel comfortable enough to commune with the other customers and the baristas... and feel at home.

Unfortunately, we are yet to find a way to serve coffee at the Chessity cafe! But we are very friendly and we want to get to know you, dear member! We want our cafe to be a meeting place for everyone, whatever steps they’re making with their chess development.

Our system’s latest modifications and improvements are primarily aimed at making you feel more at home with us and your Chessity experience more pleasant.

The main line of the solution is now highlighted in a different colour to the sub-lines. When the analysis consists of multiple lines, this new feature should make it much easier to follow. Oh, and I recommend you stay on the blue line!

We have introduced coloured arrow signalling on the chess board. The system is intuitive, but here is a brief description: green is correct, yellow means you have revealed an Achilles’ heel, red is incorrect... I hope you live your Chessity life in green!

The technically most complex novelty is the HINT button. It offers you instant access to the last generation analysis chess program. If you think you found a move that is as good as the solution, you can play it on the board and then press the HINT button. A green arrow will be displayed, indicating the best answer, as well as an evaluation of the position after your alternate move. This way, you can find out what is wrong with your solution, or, on the contrary, you may get the satisfaction that it is indeed good!

In the lattermost case, please let the Chessity staff and other users know about it, by reporting at the café via the forum. We will make any necessary corrections as soon as possible.

I trust you will find all these helpful. And I do hope you will like the cafe’s new style... Enjoy your virtual coffee!
