Re: Eschecs, a simple GUI written in Pascal

Would it be possible to also support castling (say in orthodox mode) by moving the king to the target position? Done. I was afraid but in fact it was not so complicated. :) if (FUserMove = 'e1g1') and FGame.IsLegal('e1h1') and FGame.IsCastling('e1h1') then FUserMove := 'e1h1'; if (FUserMove = 'e1c1...

Re: Galjoen 0.40 released

It looks like gtkmm is missing. Gtkmm is the C++ interface for gtk. You will also need the development packages. I don't know how they are called on Mageia, but I suppose it's something like lib64gtkmm3.0-devel-* Thank you for your help. I could download the packages and compile the application. 8-)

Re: Eschecs, a simple GUI written in Pascal

Hello! A new version of Eschecs is coming. The main difference with the previous version is the transition from traditional chess to chess 960. For now the application works only with engines having the UCI_Chess960 option. Later I will restore compatibility with standard engines. Another new featur...

I see durandal32.exe and durandom32.exe there.
What is the difference?
Durandom is a random mover.

Yes, both engines work with WinBoard.
