Re: ZEsarUX 6.1 BETA March 2018

I remember that time ago I used an "only text output" instead of the graphical window (curses/stdout/simpletext), but I'm not anymore able to get the command line flag to enable it: it still exist? In case, I rember that it was not possible to distinguish inverse characters (white on black) from sta...

Re: 1K Real Chess for ZX80

Indeed very interesting games... especially the last one! :) I think that if I'll be able to put just a bit more playing logic super micro might win these matches... Let's see: I do not want in any case to use more than 1k... everything should fit there! As usual I made the pgns attached... Personal...

Re: 1K Real Chess for ZX80

Good! :)
(for the record I made the pgn file attached)

I saw also in this game moves that doesn't convince me...
Can you try one game also with the "35" version? (with black smooth a bit the initial moves still without logic...)

Thank you!

Re: 1K Real Chess for ZX80

Stefano let me be the first to say all your work on this is fantastic. :ugeek: One thing to bare in mind is that humans make illogical moves unlike computers so the results of ZX81 v ZX80 are not really fair. When up against a human opponent the results are far different to the cold logic of anothe...

Re: 1K Real Chess for ZX80

I was trying to follow the first game moves and make a pgn but I found some illegal ones and even "interpreting" what the move could be at the end probably I did something wrong and the result is not complete... So I decided to do a test myself (before seeing the 9 move shame game! :( ). Spectrum Ch...

Re: 1K Real Chess for ZX80

Good! :) Even with the "not mirrored" version try to play black (meaning the color at the bottom of the screen) with ZX80 against a Spectrum playing white. As said even without initial logic might play a bit better (moving pawns instead of wasting moves with the tower until something interesting hap...

Re: 1K Real Chess for ZX80

Yes I mirrored not rotate, sorry!! :(

Good you can rotate the Spectrum at least (the changes for rotation are not difficult but spread in various part of the code and so not a quick upgrade)!
