The game runs fine in DOSBOX on my Slackware Linux machine, either in window or full screen, the sound is fine as well.
If you end up with a gazillion toolbars and all kinds of crap you are probably using Internet Explorer. Get a real browser and protect yourself with AdBlocking add-ons and a good HOSTS file.
I have a slightly different version of Battle Chess that I think is better, the queen throws bolts of lightening, and the bishop makes a snickering sound when he kills. I think it′s version 4.
This game taught me how to play chess. I remember how proud I felt when I beat the comp on the highest difficulty. Back then I felt like some chess genius. Recently, about 25 years later, I created an account on some online chess site and can′t get over the 1200 rating in blitz. To add insult to injury, I have to read on the site′s forums how 1500 rated players are "patzers". Sorry for the rant. Chess is hard.
