This one DEFINITELY needs to be filed under New Chessmaster, with the rest:
0892 - New Chessmaster, The (Japan) (En,Ja)

These ones should be considered to be merged. While not technically a re-release... they're same engine, slightly revamped UI. New Chessmaster is AKA "Chessmaster: Special Edition"
0229 - Chessmaster, The (USA) (Rev A)^M
0228 - Chessmaster, The (USA)^M


This from GameFAQs on The Chessmaster (GB):

The New Chessmaster

The Chessmaster was rereleased a short while after the original release
under the title 'The New Chessmaster'. The only changes, aside from the obvious
name change, are a smoother interface with the settings. There are absolutely
no other changes between the two editions of The Chessmaster.

The New Chessmaster is also known as 'The Chessmaster: Special Edition'.

I used the game-id codes as a reference now for P/C ignoring engine and contents.
