Re: 3D Chess 2K18

In my opinion, you have some up with something special here, it is impressive immediately, regardless of size. If I could wish for one feature it would be to have a mode whereby you get to see the moves it is considering and rejecting. 1k chess for the ZX-81 does this. It is a fascinating thing to w...

Re: 3D Chess 2K18

On my chess device, I use 2 arrow keys to select the piece, which is more flexible than a single key for cycling. So, I suggest the 5 and 8 keys. I also have a pleasant -click- sound via small speaker.

Re: 3D Chess 2K18

In an actual game, I would like to quickly choose the piece to move, may I suggest inverting the color of each piece as you go through your options? Once the piece is chosen, it rises, then I choose the destination square?

Re: 3D Chess 2K18

I mentioned ZX chess because I love the way it cycles through the possible moves, and with actual pieces it would be a fascinating visualization of the engine at work.

Re: 3D Chess 2K18

I love the purity of Microchess, but to me it's interface (notation) obfuscates the play. When I play it I have to mentally translate. It is much better with a VT-100 terminal.

As for moving the pieces up, I agree, at least 1 line. Really amazing.

Re: 3D Chess 2K18

This is stunning arkannoyed. If I could have two wishes, they would be:
1. Tie Peter Jennings 1k MicroChess to this beautiful interface.
2. tie the infamous 1k ZX chess to this beautiful interface.

I wish I wish.

Iterating the iterator

Hi BASIC Brains, I am trying to get my head around iterating something that is already iterating. Hmm, I hope that made sense. Well, let's say I have this: 10 LET X=1 15 FOR T = 1 TO 5 20 PRINT X 25 LET X=X+1 30 NEXT T RUN 1 2 3 4 5 But what if I want the whole thing to iterate, so it does: 6 7 8 9 ...

Re: Using the "IN" command for WASD game control

Fixed! Man, I never would have guessed that the issue was a preference setting, since I was using the emulated keyboard to type in the program. Excellent dj, thank you for taking the time to share your knowledge.
