Re: 1K Real Chess for ZX80

The en-passant should be properly managed: as said just double-step on first move of every pawn allows it. Easy to test various combination with this "flexible" version moving appropiately both sides. Also manual moves are checked for legality, with the only exception for castling in which there is ...

Re: 1K Real Chess for ZX80

I tested the en-passant and it is working. The way is the usual one: you take the piece you want to move and put it in the destination square! If it happen to discover a strange situation (this or another) please report it and I'll investigate! Good to know that alfa-beta version is stronger! Anyway...

Re: 1K Real Chess for ZX80

So, here it is: the flicker free release of 1k real chess for ZX80. Hope is working! 8-) Attached there are 2 versions; one using alfa/beta pruning on 4 ply, the other quiescence search on 3-5 ply (I've still to merge of the two capabilities). Both are still without initial move logic and full optim...

Re: ZX80 porting of Super Micro Chess 1K

So, the good news seems that the engine logic is working! ;)

Regarding the move input I didn't change, and last time yourself preferred the "flicker" version! If the ROM is bugged can it be corrected there? This weekend I'll try again on my ZX80. I'll try to ask also the opinion of Paul.

In the meantime I would like just to show what I did with the trace (out 53) and some postprocessing scripts: an interactive navigation of all the engine calls equote]xecuted in the

Re: ZEsarUX 6.1 BETA

ZesarUX is a great emulator. The only area it really needs improvement is debugging: it seems that all the facilities are there but the user interface is not very "approcheable"... Maybe creating an extension for this fantastic editor https://code.visualstudio.com/docs/editor/debugging , or similar ...

Re: Which emulator and assembler for the Mac?

An old question but anyway for my short but pretty intense personal experience I would surely recommend as others ZesarUX as the emulator, but FASMG with EZ80 includes as assembler! :) PS: I even posted time ago a quick start kit to develop "extreme programs" (why to use assembler if not? 8-) ) with...
