The difference in the AI playing modes
The first thing you will see when the free chess page opens is a question about whether or not you want to play shallow or deep AI. The AI is set to adjust to your style of playing, so you don’t have to choose a challenge level. It is also designed to take maximum advantage of the processing power of your computer. If you bring your mouse over either word you will see a description of what type of processor it is designed for (Pentium II or III). Don’t worry if you don’t know, it’s easy to figure out.
