Guess atari assumed noone would actualy be crazy enough to try the hardest setting.
Because the look-ahead routine is allowed to be abandoned prematurely while the pieces are still left in a "look-ahead" state (moving not only it's own, but some of yours as well), this can lead to any number of impossible game scenarios. An ELO rating does not apply where cheating is involved (however unintentional it might have been).

Interesting thread! I doubt 4k chess can involve a large enough matrice for hours of look ahead querying; a few minutes of calculation should suffice for the maximum calc depth attainable; multi-hour mode would seem to be just a marketing feature. Quite excellent for a 4k chess program though, it could beat the Colour Chess cart for the CoCo hands down IMO the ChessMaster engine's 2000 rating was pretty close to the mark though the later grand master claims of 2500 and beyond (3000!?) were ridiculous.
