|Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)|
|Q. My computer has an Intel 82800 family video adapter and whenever I try to run Majestic Chess, I am told that the program cannot be run. What is the problem?
A. This problem is occurring because this graphics controller cannot support the default resolution and bit-depth for Majestic Chess, which is 1024×768 with 32-bit color. But there is a workaround for this problem. In your Majestic Chess runtime folder, there is a subfolder called “res”. In this folder there is a file called “User.ini”. Open this file for editing with any simple text editor, such as Notepad. There will be a section that says “[3Dsettings]” and a line in that section that says “32bit_color=1”. Change this line to read “32bit_color=0” and save the file. You will now be able to run Majestic Chess.
Q. My computer has an S3 Savage video adapter and all text in Majestic Chess is unreadable. What’s going on?
A. The problem is due to the fact that the drivers for this adapter are not 100% compatible with DirectX 8.1 or higher.
Q. Where can I get updates for Majestic Chess?
A. The easiest way to get program updates is to go to the Multi Player mode.
Majestic Chess will automatically check for program updates every time it connects to the Majestic Chess server. After downloading the update, you will be prompted to install the update. After the update completes, Majestic Chess will be launched again, and you will be able to run the program normally.Q. I have tried several times to register my copy of Majestic Chess with the registration code on the front of my CD case. Each time, the program says that my code was accepted and I can then play the game. But, the next time I try to play the game, it asks me for the code again! What am I doing wrong?
A. You aren’t doing anything wrong. We have no idea why this rare problem is happening but it has to do with a certain portion of your Windows Registry not being writeable. Additionally, this problem only has been reported by Windows XP users. So, at this time, the fix that we have for it will only work on Windows XP. Go to “Start Menu -> Run”, type “regedit” and press “OK”. Then, navigate to this key:HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Fluent_Entertainment\Majestic_Chess
Then, go to the “Edit -> Permssions” menuitem and make sure that the “Full Control” box is checked. Then quit regedit and you should be able to successfully enter your Majestic Chess registration key.
Q. Once or twice I have had to upgrade your demo when I logged onto the multiplayer feature. Why is that?
Q. I installed your demo version off of a CD (rather than downloading it from your website), and then I had to download a 40MB update file when I tried to go to the multiplayer section. After downloading this update file, any time I try to play a game online, the program crashes. What’s up?
Q. When attempting to install Majestic Chess, I get an error message that says that “Unable to Launch Majestic Chess Installer”. How can I install the program?
Q. My frame rate for Majestic Chess is very slow. What can I do to speed it up?
