Maybe you could post source so that maybe we can improve the algorithm a bit The whole source code is included in the zip file : http://www.freebasic-portal.de/dlfiles/265/ESCHECS02.zip I would be glad if you had a look in it, but I'm afraid my code isn't enough readable and understandable for anot...

most of its moves looks like random moves of any piece for any open space. Yes, it's true. But even this simple result is not so easy to reach ! It looks for all his possible moves ; for each one, all moves of the other side ; and for each one, all his own moves again. In order to select a move, it...

I already had a look to Beowulf. It seems to be a very good program.

I made a very very little one (ten short "data" lines) for my program.

Thank you the link, Lachie ! This is exactly what I would like to do now, plug a strong enough engine in my program. But I don't know how it can be done. I have a lot of programs of that kind, that you play with simply in console mode, with keyboard. I don't know the way to do it from a program. I'm...

Garvan, I hope you were not too disappointed by my poor little program ! I'm working for the next release. I replaced keyboard by mouse, and remade the screen. I like the result. But my "engine" stays very weak. I would like to join an stronger engine to my GUI, but I have no idea of the way to do i...

Really I would like to be able to make a stronger "engine", but I'm not sure I will be. Now I try to imp...
