I won, playing black, first try!!!! ^.^ Mated with a queen and knight. Outsmarted the Flash using simple tactics. Interesting flash game, thanks for creating. And you're right, I experienced no lag. Cool.
Yeeesssss!!! Finally I could win after being defeated twice. Hahahahahaaa!!!!!! It was really FUN! Just for my curiosity, can you recommend me a book or website about writing a chess engine for beginners, please?
Great programming man!!!!I once tried to make a C program for chess at school but it never worked out error free so u must be a really good programmer to pull it off so well.But if u ask me the AI is very easy which I defeated with my queen,2 rooks and one bishop still remaining.It would be some where around 1300 USCF.
Fantastic job. As an AS3 programmer and a chess player i really appreciate what you've done here but just a couple of issues: The lack of any sound effects and also the computer made some really obvious mistakes. I played as white twice and beat it both times. But great job nonetheless
Yes, I guess I could. I can give you a short one here: 1. Make movable pieces which follows the rules 2. In every turn, make an array of all possible moves 3. When the computer is about to make a move, decide which one by looking at them all: - count safe pieces - count unsafe pieces - check which one you captured - check which of yours could be captured - ect ect and then pick the move which seems to be the best!
lol no. i just didnt know you could get a unit from that that you already have on the field.. i thought you could only get units back that have already died (his queen was still alive when he got it over)
oh, alright yes, you get a new piece when you get a pawn to the other side. You should be able to chose which you want, but since you'd like a queen in 99% of all cases, I made it turn to a queen automatically ^^
Well i'm not sure whether i'll ever get round to finishing it... I have like a million unfinish projects and i'm currently working on [link] but yeah if I ever get it finished we should make them play each other ^^
But now you've said you have a java based one i'm gonna have to see if I can beat that too ^^
