DreamChess features 3D OpenGL graphics and provides various chess board sets, ranging from classic wooden to flat.

A moderately strong chess engine is included: Dreamer. However, should this engine be too weak for you, then you can use any other XBoard-compatible chess engine, including the popular Crafty and GNU Chess.

Other features include on-screen move lists using SAN notation, undo functionality, and savegames in PGN format.

Eboard to graficzny program szachowy, który może działać jako interfejs do internetowych serwerów szachowych, takich jak FICS oraz silników szachowych, takich jak Crafty.

Eboard umożliwia stosowanie motywów i swobodną zmianę rozmiaru planszy, wyświetlanie zakładek lub wielu okien oraz obsługę wielu plansz w tym samym czasie.

Pakiet zawiera interfejs szachowy, co oznacza, że można grać z innym graczem na tym samym komputerze, lub na serwerze internetowym. Aby grać z komputerem, należy zainstalować dodatkowo silnik szachowy, taki jak gnuchess.

The package is enhanced by the following packages: phalanx

This is a very strong chess engine, placed second in the 13th world computer chess championship 2005. It uses the UCI (universal chess interface), for chess engines as communication protocol. This means to play against it, you will have to use an UCI capable interface, like knights. This distribution comes with an opening book of moves that the engine can use for the first few moves of the game. This increases performance in the chess games opening.

Fairly simple application designed to track the time spent thinking by the players during a chess game. Various clock engines are available (speed chess, fischer chess, board games or hourglass). The graphical interface is keyboard-driven and is intended to be minimal and simple. The code is made to be extensible to other game types.

HaChu is an AI engine for many variants of Shogi (japanese chess), and Chess.

It currently plays the following games:

  • Sho Shogi, the immediate ancestor of modern Shogi
  • Chu Shogi, the most widely played large-board variant (12x12 board), featuring the famous Lion piece
  • Mighty Lion (a simple variant of normal chess to more easily get to know the Lion; does not implement castling yet)
  • Dai Shogi, a variant on 15x15 board (no GUI support yet)
  • Tenjiku Shogi, a 16x16 variant with even more exotic pieces (unfinished, no GUI support yet)
  • More classical chess variants:
  • Shatranj (does not implement the baring rule yet)
  • Makruk (does not implement counting yet)
  • Standard Chess (without castling)

Most games (excluding Dai and Tenjiku) can be played through the XBoard GUI (version 4.8 and later).

Phalanx to prosty program do gry w szachy o konwencjonalnym wzornictwie. Jest kompatybilny z xboard. Głównym celem jego powstania było utworzenie wolno myślącego programu, dysponującego ogromną wiedzą na temat szachów. Aktualna wersja programu udostępnia ryzykowne, aktywne szachy o całkiem dobrej wydajności taktycznej.

Common chess frontends have a winboard/xboard input interface, modern chess engines speak the UCI "universal chess interface" protocol. This protocol adaptor makes it possible to use standard chess frontends, like xboard or scid with UCI speaking engines and play chess against them.

Shane's Chess Information Database jest szachową aplikacją bazodanową z graficznym interfejsem użytkownika. Można przeglądać bazy gier szachowych, edytować je oraz wyszukiwać gry według różnych kryteriów. Scid używa własnego, kompaktowego i szybkiego formatu baz danych, ale może też konwertować gry zarówno do jak i z PGN. Istnieje także możliwość gry na żywo w Internecie, gdzie można wykorzystać wiedzę w praktyce.

Ten pakiet zawiera główny program.

Sjeng is a chess program that plays normal chess and many variants like crazyhouse, bughouse, suicide (aka giveaway or anti-chess) and losers. It can also play variants which have the same rules as normal chess, but a different starting position. It uses the XBoard/WinBoard interface by Tim Mann, so it can be used with xboard or eboard. It is also capable of playing on internet chess servers.

Silnik szachowy upowszechniony na licencji wolnego oprogramowania, wywodzący z Glaurung 2.1. Jest to sam mechanizm szachowy, dlatego do komfortowej pracy wymaga interfejsu szachowego zgodnego z UCI (universal chess interface - uniwersalny interfejs szachowy), takiego jak: XBoard (z PolyGlot), eboard, Jose, Arena lub scid. W październiku 2009 roku był najsilniejszym silnikiem szachowym typu open source na CCRL (Computer Chess Rating List - listy rankingowej szachów komputerowych). Został napisany w języku C++ i używa wielu wątków i jąder. Współpracuje z Chess960 i udostępnia eksperymentalną obsługę otwierania książek w formacie PolyGlot.

Tagua is a frontend for a variety of board games. Currently supported games include chess, shogi and a couple of variants of those games.

Tagua is based on a powerful plugin system that allows many games to share the same graphical framework, game history handling, interoperability with AI engines and connectivity to network servers.

It currently has support for xboard-compatible chess engines, and xshogi-compatible shogi engines, as well as network play on chess ICS servers.

A Go program with no human provided knowledge. Using MCTS (but without Monte Carlo playouts) and a deep residual convolutional neural network stack.

This is a fairly faithful reimplementation of the system described in the Alpha Go Zero paper "Mastering the Game of Go without Human Knowledge". For all intents and purposes, it is an open source AlphaGo Zero.

https://deepmind.com/documents/119/agz_unformatted_nature.pdf

No network weights are in this repository. If you manage to obtain the AlphaGo Zero weights, this program will be about as strong, provided you also obtain a few Tensor Processing Units. Lacking those TPUs, the author recommends a top of the line GPU - it's not exactly the same, but the result would still be an engine that is far stronger than the top humans.

Recomputing the AlphaGo Zero weights will take about 1700 years on commodity hardware. Upstream is running a public, distributed effort to repeat this work. Working together, and especially when starting on a smaller scale, it will take less than 1700 years to get a good network (which you can feed into this program, suddenly making it strong). To help with this effort, run the leelaz-autogtp binary provided in this package. The best-known network weights file is at http://zero.sjeng.org/best-network
