Thread for discussing this package: http://boards.openpandora.org/index.php/topic/13889-beta-dream-chess/

The chess engine Crafty 23.0 is bundled in the package. Just replace dreamer for crafty in dreamchess configuration (there is a openings book and a config file in /appdata/dreamchess/bin for fine tuning Crafty). Crafty was developed by Dr. Robert M. Hyatt with contributions from other devs too.

Special thanks to:
Lunixbochs, for his awesome LibGL, for providing a compiled new version and for testing.
Mcobit, for his kind advice on Pacifi3d (that came to fruition here).
PtitSeb, for his awesome Codeblocks pnd.

Changes in 0.0.0.4 [Appdata folder deletion needed]:

* Fixed the weird settings saving behavior.
* Removed mouse cursor.

Don't know how good dreamer is and I can barely move the pieces. But in this site there are some reasonable tests methods: http://www.computerchess.org.uk/ccrl/. At least Dreamer appears in the 40 moves in 4 minutes ranking.
