OpenChess is a Chess game, Opening Trainer and Chess database for the Palm OS platform.rnrnOpenChess has a clear and easy-to-understand user interface. While playing you will see the board, coordinates, the last move in SAN notation and a couple of buttons to reach the most used functions with only one click.rnrnFor example, you can turn the board, switch side, ask for move suggestion (hint) or display material differences at any time. OpenChess will support Drag and Move - you can make a move with just dragging a piece to the new square.rnrnA clock will display how much time the playing side has consumed so far. The same clock will be used to indicate the progress for computer moves. Additionally, you will be able to change background colors and piece sets.rnrnNew piece sets can be either downloaded or you can even create your own one, provided you have bitmaps of your favorite pieces (OpenChess Pieceset HowTo).rnrnOpenChess 3.0 will contain native support for most resolutions of PalmOS devices with PalmOS 3.0 and above.rnrnNew in version 3.0 is:rn- 320x480, color on PalmOS 5 (i.e. Tungsten T3)rn- 240x320, grayscale on PalmOS 3.5 (i.e. HandEra 330)rn- 240x320, color on PalmOS 5 (i.e. Qool QDA-700)rnrnDynamic input area (also called HiRes+) of such devices will also be used by OpenChess, now.rnrnAll games played against the computer or by yourself can be loaded and saved to the OpenChess palm database (PDB) and exported as PGN file to the Memo Pad application. Furthermore the board edit mode allows for setup of any legal board position, including information about castling and en passant possibilities. An opening book with 241 opening lines is built-in the OpenChess.prc - in addition, opening books can be loaded onto the device as palm database.rnrnIn Player vs. Player mode you can record chess games including variants.
