you should make a wiki for your chess program

you can upload all the versions and instructions and screen shots, they are very simple to make

I am happy to present the short mouse-help I've just finished.
Thanks :
To TESLACOIL for the idea of use the place where taken pieces are drawn.
To TJF for the idea of multilingual help.
To BasicCoder2, Richard and fxm for their translations.

Sorry, that's not exactly what I had in mind when I spoke about a multilingual GUI. I recommend to separate the texts from the source so a translator can act without changing the source code. And you need not care about the translator when you change the code.

Like it's done in a GTK application or in this gettext example.

Yes, I know ! I can see the kind of thing you had in mind. Maybe when my program is complete I will make something like that.

Eschecs 0.3

Postby Roland Chastain » Dec 14, 2011 18:08

Hello !

Here is ESCHECS 0.3 : http://www.freebasic-portal.de/downloads/spiele/eschecs-210.html
New :
Short multilingual "old-manner" help message for mouse control. Thanks to charitable translaters (english and german languages).
Highlighting legal moves with right-click. (It is not yet written in the Help !)
Short messages in the window title, about the way to quit, and about the way to stop the "auto" mode.
A new line in the evaluation program. Anti-pawn-promotion ! The h2-h4-h5-h6 attack doesn't succeed any longer ! ;-)
I made also much things in the source code, in order to progress in clarity and order, but there is much to do.

Please have a look and let me know what you think about !

Hi !

I need again a translation for my "help" screen. It would be very nice to let me know how I could turn in english this sentence :

"Vous pouvez voir les coups permis à chaque pièce en utilisant le bouton droit de la souris."

Thanks in advance !

Perhaps:
Right mouse button on piece lists the allowed moves.

But I wonder if "list" is the right word. The allowed moves are indicated by a colored line on squares, not written like "e2e4". Does the word "list" suit, according to you, to say that ?

Right mouse button on piece displays the allowed moves.

(I thought it was a pop-up window!)

This is what I said to me, that you thought of a window. I should have been clearer. Thank you !

Code: Select all

draw string (36,036),"To move a piece, click on it and then"
draw string (36,048),"click on the square you wish to  move"
draw string (36,060),"it to. Right mouse  button  on  piece"
draw string (36,072),"displays the allowed moves."
draw string (36,084),"Press any key..."

I try your chess. It is good.

But sometimes I can not see what move oposit side played.
Can you change color and delay a second for each move

Also I press ESC and game finish without a question:
"Do you want to end this game" or so
