New Chess Graphics for Chess for Android

Post by abik » Thu Oct 13, 2016 9:14 pm

Thanks to Bryan Whitby, who very kindly gave me permission to use his awesome chess graphics in Chess for Android, I am about to release a new version with these additional sets (Modern and Russian). I am very thankful, since these graphics look really good, and combine well with the various board types already supported. So, expect an updated on Android Play and my website really soon! And, thank you Bryan!

The first one reminds me of the board in ChessGenius for android..the second one is a bit unusual...I mostly use the blue board with the white and black pieces...but a USCF color board medium green and off white squares could be very useful to look at for long tournaments...The Mayura board and pieces is very pleasing along with the Shredder light wood set...(easy to look at).......Thx for the app....AR :D

I initially designed both sets for Richard Lang's ChessGenius handheld computers.
Richard still uses my original Modern set whilst Aart will use a slightly updated version.
The Russian pieces were designed as an additional set for a recent ChessGenius update only Richard's are silver & black and Aart's are Brown & Silver.
What's my next move? - to the fridge for another beer !!

With repeated thanks to Bryan Whitby, and sorry for the long delay, version 5.2.5 is now available on Google Play.

Aart, as usual, may we ask for the network version of CfA?

Wow, this completely slipped my attention. I have put the latest APKs (plain and network) with the additional piece sets on my Android website.

Are you planning to buy the rights to them for us?
