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.

By the way how strong is the AI ? Not that I think I can beat it anyway (I am too rusty right now) but just out of curiosity, vs the other chess games available on Pandora.

Thanks Monkfish! If you or any other chess player want a new engine to be added, just drop a line in the forum ;-) [As long as the engine is Xboard compatible it should be possible to add].

excellent software 5/5, best chess program on Pandora in my opinion. AI seems reasonable enough - The possibility of other engines being added in future makes this seem all the more playable though. Works really nicely with Pandora controls.
