To JOJO MAMA, another commenter on this site, my suggestion for your problem is, first, download the software. If its an archive, extract all the files into one folder first. After that, you can now see the main executable file. it is usually longer (more bytes) than other executables in the same folder. Now, right click on this exe file. Then, select "Give it a desktop shortcut". Then proceed to your desktop. Right click on that icon you just created. Then, select "Properties". Then do this PROPERTIESCOMPATIBILITY. Then, check the "Run in compatibility mode" box. Then, a menu selection appears. Select the appropriate OS. Then, that's it. I hope this helps. I'm talking of the use of Windows XP. If you're using XP, this is exactly what you're gonna do.

One of my childhood memories, I've played the windows version a long time ago.
And btw, how could they get the chinese translation wrong? Xiangqi is chinese chess, NOT western chess.
Why is it that a lot of asians rarely get translations right?

I have this version for Windows 3.x but I can't get it to play under Windows 3.11 in DOSBox because naturally I don't have any drivers for Windows 3.x for my modern laptop. So every time I try to run it it will pop up with an error message. Thank you very much for providing the DOS version. Can't wait to try it.

@Excel: You need to run it through DOSBox. Notice how it clearly states this is a DOS game in the description?

Compared it with Chessmaster 2000. The look and interface changed, I needed some time to get used to it. I like it's very detailed tutorial plus "Natural language advice" feature - when the program shows you the best next move with detailed explanation of what it will accomplish. Great tool to learn to think several moves ahead.
