Scroll down to where it says Play against CSA World computer champ and download the game and engine. Follow the hard to understand directions to get it working properly.

Next you need to change some setting on your xbox game. Go to help and options then setting and change the piece set to traditional, so they match the computer exactly.

Now for the computer settings. Click game, engine manager and follow the instructions on the website to load the engine up. Next start new game. The second box "Gote" switch to engine and it should load it for you. Next go down to time control. 30 minutes works for the first 10 or so guys. After that you might need to change it to 1 hour, thats what I'm using and I usually finish the game with 2-15 minutes left. Next Click OK to start the game. Once the game starts click view then rotate board. You will be moving the top set of pieces exactly as the computer does on the xbox.

Now start the game on the xbox at the career mode screen push Y to bring up a game settings screen. You need to change it so it says white. Then simply start the game. You do the move the xbox opponent does on the computer screen, pausing the xbox after every move or you will run out of time. Then the computer will do a move and you move your piece on the xbox. The pieces that the computer moves on the computer is what you do on your turn on the xbox. The best part is it has a little box on the side that shows what moves are made so you can double check everything before you make your move.

Some notations that the computer uses that do not show up on the xbox.
* means piece drop from the side
+ means a piece is promoted
x means a piecs has been taken
