AXECHESS - The First Chess made in Axe
« on: November 07, 2012, 11:53:51 am »
So basically, I have used another part of the forum to get help, but I think i will do the rest of the posting here.

Thanks to all those who are helping and will help

This is AXECHESS:



The SRC, the App, the Readme, and the Screenshot are attached.

AXECHESS needs help with AI, move checks, en passant, and promotion.

help with code will be rewarded.

One suggestion i have would be to XOR your cursor instead of ORing/replacing whatever's there, that way you can still see what piece you have selected. I'm not very good at chess, though ;)

chicken: If you look good at the screenie you can see that the selected piece is in the upper left corner. And may I know why this needs to be an app? (I think it's not over 8811 bytes?)

It's an app b/c originally, it was too big to be a prog.

Yeah, but only AFTER you've selected it. You could also use that side are to show a more detailed (read: larger) sprite of the piece you've selected. I'm not sure what all of those terms mean, but are pieces restricted to squares they are allowed to go to? ie the bishop can only move diagonally, the pawns can only move forward unless they are attacking, etc.

What exactly is it you need help with? I can't help with AI as i really suck at chess, someone from the TI-CT like Lionel or thepenguin77 who wrote an asm version might be able to help, but i can maybe help explain how to do some of the other things.

HUGE EDIT: (complete post revamp to be exact)
Okay as for AI, thepenguin77 has a position evaluation formula in the readme of his chess game, which you  could use for your engine too.

This is impressive so far!
There are people who can speak two languages, and they are called bilingual.  There are people who speak three languages and are therefore trilingual.  Then there are people who speak one language, and these people are called Americans.

pimath, the ticalc.org link to it has been given to you at least twice in your other thread :P

Also I moved this thread to the Z80 projects subforum

No worries.
And nice to see the screen not disappearing while you're picking a piece. Do you have any other plans besides adding in AI?
