                      AmiBoard - An electronic chess board

                              by Thorsten Greiner

                                 V1.0 (25.3.1994)


Introduction:

    This is a new chess program for the Amiga. It is not a  port  of  GNUChess
    but  a completely new program. It requires a 68020 or better processor and
    Kickstart/Workbench 3.0. Also lots of RAM are welcome :-)



What's in it:

    - Strong chess  engine  (evaluates  between  500  and  1000  nodes/sec  on
      68030 at 25 MHz), parts of kernel written in 68020+ assembler

    - Opening book from GNUChess with about 30000 opening lines

    - supports PGN (Portable Game Notation), several thousand  games  in  this
      format are available via anonymous ftp. One example file is included.

    - uses Standard Algebraic Notation (e.g. Nf3 instead of g1-f3)

    - Chess pieces are loaded from IFF brush, can easily be  changed  to  your
      liking with any standard paint program

    - Fontadaptive GUI

    - Mostly localized (Some error texts will always appear in English)



What's not (yet):

    - Full localization 

    - Support for comments in PGN

    - Detection of draws according to threefold repetition of position or the 
      50 moves rule

    - Setup of positions

    - Installer script
