Re: ESCHECS 0.1 (Chess program)

I see no reason why you would promote a pawn to a rook or bishop when the queen essentially amounts to acting like either pieces? There have been end games where promotion to a Knight has been used to an advanatage Gameplay can, and has, come up where promotion to a rook or bishop is necessary to p...

Excellent reporting job. The Go engine looks nice; can't wait to see what happens there.

Should I ever have time to make 1.2 (busy on my next project right now), it will probably have FMOD, cleaner traps (yeah even I fall for it), sound state save and a few other suggestions. The amulet is on level 100 and the maximum number of rooms on a level is 841 (29x29). That could change as well-...

An excellent issue as always. I am always surprised that a fellow coder, especially one as able as yourself, finds the time to review most if not all of the works of others, in TWO different BASIC dialects.

Thanks for drawing my attention to "Tron Pac-Man" and "Antiman" as well.

I prefer JellyFB myself, but not because of any of its features; it's just the one I'm used to.

I can understand your reluctance to continue with this project, if you have had a few ideas for other projects that are more pressing on your interest. (I have two other games to finish before I can work on my RPG.) So long as you stick with something and finish it, you may eventually wish to get ba...

Much of FB has been "add your own thing so you can do your own thing". Definitely so with Draw String, which is designed to work with custom fonts so you can add unicode characters. The default is DOS because the ancestor, QBasic, was DOS, and to allow for compatibility with console mode and PRINT. ...

I am very upset at 99% of the articles about the late Mr. Jobs. They don't mention his time spent revolutionizing video games at Atari. He and Wozniak made Breakout, donchaknow. I guess for some people, it's about the money and not the fun. (By serendipity, I almost made a Breakout minigame in my la...

Many developments, projects and applications never had books written about them, and yet are the best in their fields. Shade is a great 3D rendering application, and yet it has had only one book ever, which was 4 versions ago. I still would rather use it than Lightwave or 3DSMax or even SketchUp. Mo...
