LL Chess Game
So, you want to try this new chess game? Well, you've come to the right place. The game was last updated on May 14th, 2001, if you have the older version, please download this one. With each version, the game becomes stronger and stronger. There is a llchess.txt file included with the distribution with information about the current release.
This Chess game was written by Leonid Liberman in 100% assembly over several years, is still in it's beta stages. Does have some minor bugs in it, but overall, very nicely written. Compared to all other chess games I've seen, this game is one of the fastest. (& hardest)
You will need a 386 compatible computer, running at least DOS. The game runs fine under all versions of Windows (Including 95/98/NT/2000/XP). (The game also runs under Linux using dosemu). You will also need a zip program to uncompress the archive. You can get a shareware version of such a program from http://www.winzip.com or http://www.pkware.com
Game written by Leonid Liberman at leonidd at NO SPAM sympatico dot ca. Please direct all game related feedback to him. Feedback encourages innovation, and makes the whole thing worth while, so, if you have anything to say about the game, please let us know. Thank you.
Leonid has also recently started to write his "chess game theory". The doc is not yet finished, but if you'd like to see what he has already, click here. This doc is mostly technical stuff, so, if you're not a programmer, you're not going to understand most of it. It describes the basics of chess game programming, the logic used in this game, and even has bits of source code for better understanding.
Inevitable Mate Positions!
These are designed solely for the really dedicated ones... (or chess game programmers) These are basically the positions, from which, there WILL be a mate within several moves, so, if a chess game does not detect a mate, it's a bad game! Fortunately, this game detects them all! You can read more about these positions.
Illustration for logic...
This is a small program & source that displays a chess board on the screen and goes through every move for the white pieces... It's pretty cool to actually see how a chess game checks every possible move... read more about it here.
These files are for those of you interested to learn how the kings make it in this game. Added more incredible chess illustrations for moves; if you want to learn how to handle the moves and the board with pieces on them, these are the files to get.
