    Hi, I am new to this website. Could you tell me about the SA chess GUI, can it play NADE CHESS/ XQMS chess engine on this GUI?

    Best Regards,


    • SA Chess says:

      sa chess gui support any chinese chess UCCI engine , so XQMS supported, and  if NADE CHESS is UCCI , it should be supported, either.

    My desktop PC is running Windows 7 (64-bit) on Intel Core i7 970 @3.2Ghz.  I think it's a 6 core CPU.

    What version of your chess software should I buy to achieve the strongest strength?

  4. Brian says:

    Are all versions of your chess software now available in 64-bit ?

    My laptop is running Windows 8.1 (64-bit) on Intel Core i7 361 @2.3Ghz, 4 core CPU. Should I buy 4 or 8 cores for max streght ? Also if I want a DVD for safe keeping, do you still send the electronic version? May take few weeks to get the DVD. Thanks.


    • SA Chess says:


      Intel Core i7 361 @2.3Ghz, has 8 threads so SA Chess 8 cores edition is your best choice. 

      Yes, we will send electronic version first then post DVD if you purchase DVD for keeping. 

      thank you for supporting us.

    Last year I bought SA Chess Quad Core Edition V1.1; I use with my desk top (Core i5-2320) and my notebook (Core i7-4500U).  Both are installed with Windows 7 64 bit. The SA Chess It works great, strong and smart.  However the thinking details window and the Move List widow show in alien language (not English or Chinese language).

    For the new SA Chess V1.2, the thinking details window shows correctly in English.  But the Move List widow still shows in alien language (not English or Chinese language).

    How can I solve this problem?

    If I want to buy the new SA Chess V1.2, which version should I buy?  SA Chess Quad-Cores or SA Chess Octg-Cores ?

    For the new SA Chess V1.2, we need to send our machine id to produce a key to active SA Chess software. This means SA Chess is used in one pc for one license? If we want to install the software in two pc, do we have to buy two licenses?

    • SA Chess says:


      the Move List widow still shows in alien language (not English or Chinese language). How can I solve this problem? 

      We heard this kind of issue first time since V1.2 released, could you upload a screenshot with incorrect code in the movelist?

      which version should I buy?  SA Chess Quad-Cores or SA Chess Octg-Cores ?

      If you bought SA Chess V1.1, that is free to upgrade to 1.2 same cores edition , and pay the price gap to upgrade Octg cores edition or above, please let us know which option you want. 

      This means SA Chess is used in one pc for one license? If we want to install the software in two pc, do we have to buy two licenses?

      No, currently one user can install the software on his/her own reasonable number PCs without additional charge.  in general  , the number is two, if more than two, we might need additional evidence. 


      thank you for questions.

    Hi Sir,

    I am very impressed by the result of SA Chess 1.7.


    I bought SA Chess 1.5 last year in November.

    How can I get 1.7?

  18. CTALH says:

  20. Jacky says:

    Hi, I am using MacBook Pro. Can I use the software on Mac?

  21. T Nguyen says:


    I downloaded the 1.6 version for trying, but everytime I save my setting and exit it said the program has problem and I reload the game but it did'nt save my setting.

    very disaapointed!

    I am running the microsoft windows 10 can the version 2.0 be good for the windows 10?

    I woud like to buy the newest of your version, but I am affaid that it will do the same. Its will not save my setting . 

    • SA Chess says:


      sorry to hear that, that’s the common question caused by windows UAC,   please see here  Why I need input key every time? :


      Why I need input key every time?

      This is the reason that win7/8 UAC mode  blocked the write operation of SACHESS, so you can right click on SAChess and choose “ run as administrator”
      if there’s no option: run as administrator.
      (Assume your OS is windows 7. )
      I would suggest you to follow these steps:

      a. Right click on the program.

      b. Under Compatibility tab, check if you have the option “Run this program as an administrator”.

    • SA Chess says:
