I have a suggestion: Make an option to have the AI "delay" a random amount each move so it can time out. The delay could be random, or it could depend on the rating of the move, delaying longer for a better move.

I wonder if I can beat thepenguin77 at chess?

I'm decent. But, ironically, I think making this game has made me better.

I have a suggestion: Make an option to have the AI "delay" a random amount each move so it can time out. The delay could be random, or it could depend on the rating of the move, delaying longer for a better move.

Well, I would do that, except I have a feeling it would make people really angry, especially since they know they are actually waiting for nothing.


Update!!
  • Easter egg (cpu plays itself)
  • Setting custom starting positions
  • 50 move mate is toggleable (mostly because of previous 2)
  • 83+BE and Nspire now throw errors
  • My name is now aesthetically placed on the title screen
  • Pixel removed from knight :P


I have a screenshot of the cpu playing itself, but of course it doesn't start from the beginning because I couldn't show you how I got there ;D (The way to get there is very logical, if you figure it out, don't tell everyone)

I've also been meaning to let you customize your starting positions, and now you can. The instructions screen set a new record for me with 19 individual text strings.

I think that this might be good enough to send off to ticalc.org. Let me know if you think anything is lacking, but I believe this is it. (On a side note, I have 8766 bytes of executable code)

You can build a statue out of either 1'x1' blocks or 12'x12' blocks. The 1'x1' blocks will take a lot longer, but the final product is worth it.

Wow.  This is looking amazing.
I think this is the definitive chess game for the 83+ line.

I'm going to say calc-to calc link play would be a cool feature to add also. If it isn't feasible, that's ok too though. :) You've really done a bang-up job with this. =)

There are some fairly simple and easy linking routines floating around that would make implementing calculator to calculator multiplayer very easy.  The question is, thought, why would you really need to :P While one person is making their move, the other is just going to be holding their calc, doing nothing anyways, the need for link play is fairly small imho.

This is now over on ticalc.org. So, to get the most recent version, you have to download it over there ;D

And you know what, I think I'll put this in the Omni archives as well, I need to start doing that.

Wow great to see this released. I am not much into chess anymore but this will defininitively be popular. What amazed me in this game was how perfect the grayscale was. Of course the rest of the game is awesome too. Great job. :)

Also good idea to put it in Omni archives. Just make sure the zip file is not 15 MB large. :P

It's not *just* at ticalc, it's also featured.

When a program is featured on ticalc.org it gets a special color icon(green) and mostly gets a news article on the front page.
Ticalc.org features programs that they think stand out.
And every end of a year the featured programs from that year or choses to have a POTY.

So I got chess off of ticalc it was version 1.1. I have an 83+BE, but my friend wanted it. So I tried to run it on my calculator, just for the heck of it, using mirage. It told me a BE wouldn't cut it and then exited out of the program and then mirage wouldn't load program names. Trying to run chess again while in this state causes a ram clear. And trying to exit mirage causes the calc to start displaying the ti os memory screen at 0 ram over the program less mirage image and then freezes there. I had to pull a battery.

I played the ai a couple of times. Once it took half my pieces before I could take any of theirs. Great job on this!

Well, I fixed it  ;D

This is the same problem that caused version 1.1. Oh well, maybe this way it will scare people.
