Re: Eschecs, a simple GUI written in Pascal

Hello Daniel! Thank you for your message. I would like to make my engine better, but I spend too much time on the GUI. :)

Re: Booot 6.3.1 release

Hello Alex! Thank you for that new release. I believe I found a little bug. When the GUI sends the "ucinewgame" message, Booot answers as for the "uci" message. Booot 6.3.1_x32 uci id name Booot 6.3.1_x32 id author Alex Morozov (***) option name Hash type spin default 128 min 16 max 65536 option nam...

Re: Eschecs, a simple GUI written in Pascal

Here is a new version of the game, without Critter and without sound. :cry:

Re: Eschecs, a simple GUI written in Pascal

But it's not finished, right? Cause I don't see where to set time controls, for one. I like the marble board. Except it's so small and I can't resize it. Pressed ESC by mistake, GUI vanished. :D Good thing it saved the current position. Thank you for your feedback. It's true, it isn't finished. Man...

Eschecs, a simple GUI written in Pascal

Hello! I would like to present my simple chess GUI, written in Pascal for the Free Pascal Compiler. It is named Eschecs, the french word for chess, but written in the old fashion. It's a very simple chess GUI using (a part of) the UCI protocol. Eschecs is an open source project. You are free to use ...
