Chess for Ti-Nspire CX
« on: October 25, 2012, 09:45:10 am »
I think it would be great if someone created a chess game for Ti-Nspire CX(I would create it myself but i don't have any programming skills).
Just saying that it would be awsome to have a game a with some many rules to run on my Ti-Nspire CX!

Just get a gameboy emulator and get a chess ROM.

Emulation works, but wastes significant CPU power. A much more challenging game engine could be made by using a native Nspire chess engine instead ;)

I tried that already there is no chess rom that works on the emulators.

You can get %100 speed on a GBC emulator plus you don't need much speed while playing chess. CPU is not really a problem.

FYI, while I'm not its creator, I'm the maintainer of TI-Chess (see my signature), i.e. by far the most advanced chess engine for TI-68k platforms, and also the most downloaded TI-68k program (on ticalc.org) ever ;)
I therefore expect to be reasonably informed of the CPU consumption of a chess engine for embedded platforms, and of the tradeoffs (memory consumption, CPU consumption, depth of analysis) that this requires. A chess engine with an AI (which TI-Chess is) will be an order of magnitude faster without emulation - and it can use plenty more memory, which, in turn, can make it even faster.

Anyone feeling like porting Toledo Nanochess ( http://nanochess.110mb.com/chess3.html ) to the Nspire, with NspireIO and/or nSDL ?

Man, that would suck to have to make a chess AI on a 180MHz ARM processor with native grayscale... ;D


(Btw, as for how good was my AI, SirCmpwn told me that he lost every single game he ever played. And it will beat me every now and then if I make a mistake)

As for me, I suck at playing chess. I never beat TI-Chess' level 2, and level 1 (which does make silly mistakes) often beat me, in the sense that I often used take back; but some people could beat level 3 on a pretty regular basis (and beyond that, TI-Chess was pretty slow).

But a quick port of Toledo Nanochess, with a simple NspireIO-based UI on top, looks both doable and attractive :)

We are not even talking about greyscale but colors since the title mentions the CX ;)
Even though of course the program should run fine with greyscale on non CX Nspires.

And yeah, your AI is pretty hard to beat. I've won some games but sometimes it kills me in less than 10 rounds (because I try to trick it but it gets me in the meantime while I am looking at something else :P).
I own: 83+ ; 84+SE ; 76.fr ; CX CAS ; Prizm ; 84+CSE
Sorry if I answer with something that seems unrelated, English is not my primary language and I might not have understood well. Sorry if I make English mistakes too.

For some reason I read this like nacho nes o.o But yeah that would be nice to have on the nspire :)

Just make sure to have difficulty levels.

Guys, You can get chess for the gbc.

A)It runs at 100% so speed is not a problem
B)Even if it didn't it does not matter as it is chess

The AI is depends on the ROM. Not worth the effort.

Care to give us the exact name (not a download)  of the ROM/game in question?
Just get a gameboy emulator and get a chess ROM.
I tried that already there is no chess rom that works on the emulators.

Also Augs what if someone wanted to make a better Chess game? By the way it is against Omnimaga rules to discourage someone from working on a project under such circumstances.

There's a game called Chessmaster that is apparently available for both gbc/gba. Haven't tried it though.

A chess project would be interesting... probably don't have time though
