scripts default iconjavascript Chess Publisher's description

javascript Chess allows you to play an on-line classical chess game.

There are are a dozen or so chess games out there on the web, most of them use java applets. There lies the problem, they nearly all communicate using non-HTTP port 80 methods which usually means that if you're sitting behind a firewall (ie using the internet at work), they don't work.

This chess game uses pure HTTP port 80 communication and makes extensive use of OO javascript and DHTML. It has been tested on Netscape (4.x, and 6) and Microsoft (4,5,5.5) on Windows, Mac and Unix platform.

This script works by client side with only a bit of server side work to enable 2 players to play. Instructions: - Standard chess rules apply
- Move the pieces by clicking on them and dragging them around the board
- You can communicate to your opponent using the message box but messages are only sent after you have made you move. You should use this to ask for a draw or to resign.
- The program only allows legal chess moves, pawns are automatically promoted to queens when they reach the 8th rank. The program does not check for checkmate
- You do not need to register to play this, I don't want to keep any of your details, just provide yourself with an alias when you sign up.
- You will need someone to play with (or see below) as this game allows two people to play over the net.
