    The king will castle out of check, which is, of course, illegal.

    good work, any tips on how to code games like this?

    Re the castling out of check -- yeah, I know, this implemented a javascript version of the micromax 1.6 chess engine and it had a bug.

    I hope to get 4.8 running someday.

    re how to code games like this... there are two answers:

    1) do what I did, steal someone ELSES code. :-)

    2) Go read the discussions of the a-b move evaluation tree pruning algorithm

    3) keep the user interface very very seperate from the game engine.

    That's about all I know.

    Thanks for a great start to a chess app.
    I was going to look at the source and take a stab at contributing. But not sure where the source is located. It didn't show up in a search on Main Page - WebOS Internals
    Do you have a link?

    Cheers.

    Please attach the ipk to the OP as the forum guidelines state. Many users will be trying to download this via filecoaster and won't have access to this app if you don't.

    Thanks

    Also, simply changing the search depth to 3 would be good, if I could figure out where he controlled that. but the source is all one-character variable names. and who likes that?

    so, figuring out his algorythms is "tricky" he took LOTS of shortcuts 'cause this was written back in the bad-old-days of the dialup web. 5K was a lot to download.
    I will try as soon as I get a chance. I am sure you are just as busy as I am. Barely time to breath but if I get a chance I will look into adding that.

    Move your queen first in the move and you will get it on every time you try.

    Even in its mediocrity, this is my new fav homebrew app. I sit and beat the computer all different ways while on one single cigarette break...who wants to play for an hour really...although at some point I would like to lose (to humble myself)

    A weird glitch happened. I won by stalemate, even though the opponents king COULD move.

    Also, on another note, there should be difficulties. As of right now, the enemy AI will make any move to capture a piece of mine, even if its a pawn, resulting in the loss of their queen.

    This is a great app I love this game. I like the move counter on bottom try to change the colors it gets a little hair knowing which is yours near the end of the game. Also some sound affects and an indicator to know hows turn it is would be great.

    I would love a statistics page with total games played, won, and ratio. That would be amazing. I use the app frequently, so would love to see how I do and it doesnt seem THAT hard to implement

    OpenChess runs GNU Chess 2.0

    * You certainly could compile GNU Chess 2.0 as a C program on the pre.
    * You could certainly write a mojo app that would do xchess moves.
    * You certainly could write a browser plugin or service to tie the mojo display to the gnu chess engine

    But that requires using the community developed techniques for writing binaries, and will ---not--- be distributable through Palm's app store. :-(

    until or unless palm releases a binary sdk, the market for binary chess on the pre is substantially limited.

    But can it be done, Sure. It's easy. about 2 days work.

    This happened to me too. Well, I got checkmate when the king could move. And curiously enough, it was in the same spot. I think there's a glitch involving A8 in the move check.
