Issues unresolved[edit]

Drills don't work[edit]

The drills in Chessmaster: Grandmaster Edition do not function. About 50% of attempts to launch a drill will delay with a flickering "Waiting for drill" prompt. The drills that do function are restricted to a small subset - sometimes sticking with exactly the same puzzle for all ten drills.

Previous versions of Chessmaster do not have this issue.

Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/15260/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (15260) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
