Problem Type

Top  Previous  Next

Properly identifying the problem type is paramount as Problemiste uses this information to determine how many moves are necessary to resolve the problem. It also determines the problems mode.

In case the type of problem has not been properly identified or is not supported, Problemiste will attempt to resolve a direct twomover (default setting).

Direct: Default mode. Seeks direct mates (up to 6 moves)  
Helpmate: Seeks helpmates (up to 5 moves)  
Selfmate: Seeks selfmates (up to 5 moves)  
Reflexmate: Seeks reflexmates (up to 5 moves).  

Problemiste does not yet resolve draw problems nor problems with a maximum nor series mates/draws. However, it allows you to seize the corresponding text.
