Client Updated automatically
(please list which version you are testing)
One can login, seek and play the games, save them to PGN file, observe games, and chat without particular problems. Everything works just as on windows.
What does not
Embedded browser windows (help, news, tournament tables), globe, multimedia.
Immediately after logging in one gets the following message box: "This application is requesting an ActiveX browser object but the Mozilla Active X control is currently not installed. Do you wish to download and install it?" As this feature somehow never worked for me, I always click No in this window, Then message "Cannot open browser window" is displayed, after clicking OK the client finally starts.
Attempts to view the "World" (useless feature btw) or observe multimedia presentation fail - sometimes not displaying anything, sometimes crashing the program. Tabs containing HTML (like tournament tables or help) are simply not displayed
What was not tested
Advanced functions (like tournament management), functions related to ducats.
Save to chessbase databases (I save only to PGN files as I do not have tools to read chessbase bases)
In short: works if one wants to play, does not work if one wants to observe (or create) lectures etc. (version Oct 17 2005)
