What works

All i tried.

You need check this options in the main window:

- tools -> options -> design -> disable Notation in high quality

- tools -> options -> design -> board design ->  disable Antialiasing


Optional 1:   Install gdiplus (sh winetricks gdiplus)  and left the options enabled for better graphics, but then there is low speed on piece moves.

Optional 2: Install ie6 and wmp10 (sh winetricks ie6 gecko wmp10) in order to use chessbases with embembed video, like trainer databases.

Optional 3:  Install windows fonts (sh winetricks allfonts) for better font displaying.


What does not

Sometimes a game doesn't open and there is an error, to solve the situation u can restart the application, or double click on the database and when the new window appears double-click on the game.

 The first game you open , opens slowly, but only happens for the frist game. At this point all other games u open , opens quickly.



What was not tested

I tried several things: engines , reference databases... all is fine.
