How to play against yourself:
Make sure you have an alternate account that’s a user on your PS4. With your alternate account boot up Chess Ultra and play through one challenge so the game recognizes you as a player. You can fail the challenge, it doesn’t matter. Close down the game and switch to your main account.
Load up the game. Go to Single Game, New Game and under the Opponent setting choose friend and then find your alternate ID in the list. Start game. If you’re white make the first move. Now close the application. Switch User.
Under your alternate account boot up the game, go into Single Game and your match against your main account will be there. Start it, make your move. Close Application. Switch User and so on.
It’s important to close out the application prior to switching users others the game gets confused. It’s time consuming but makes the game self-boostable.
