I have emerald chess on my moto smartwatch. When i press on e2 it shows e3 and e4 green, e2 blue and waits which move i press. I press e4 and the move gets logged in and it answers e.g. Nc6.

Re: Testing Stockfish, Lc0, Banksia GUI for iOS (iPhone, iPad, iWatch)

IMO using a finger makes only sense if the GUI directs the cursor to the legal moves possible . E.g. customer presses g1 and hits area arround f1 or h1 and g2 (because finger is so big). Gui sees f1 could be no move because the square is empty. But g1 , Rh1 cannot move because it has no square, g2 c...

Re: Fairy-Max and chess variants rules generalization question to HGM

Re: Fairy-Max and chess variants rules generalization question to HGM

Most programmers had 8 bit machines with 1 mhz (c64) and maximal 16-32 KB engine size. On the early 16 KB Ram homecomputers even less, e.g. engine sizes between 8 and 10 KB. There were mainly z80 and 6502 machines. One can say that a chess engine on 4 mhz z80 is maybe similar fast on a 2 mhz 6502. I...
