    Default Chess

    Don't know how many of you are chess buffs, but I put in a 3d chess game so people can play each other. It's very cool, I think, so if you like playing, it's a great way to play chess with people who may literally live halfway across the world from you. Much better than email chess any day!

    Yes and I need lessons if anyone is interested. I played by myself for a while but it was a bit of a train wreck! It is pretty cool though.

    The chess game is cool! I got to play it and it was fun. It is also very realistic and runs smoothly.

    Congrats! It must have taken quite a while in making it.

    Hmph! Watch out for that Lily, she says she can't play but she whupped my butt in maybe 6 moves! HAHA! I really like to hover around above it and contemplate my next move. My av has great chess playing moves. She likes to shift around and cross her arms and check the time. Born chess player I think!

    Lily, I wish I could take credit for programming that--but all I did was modify an already existing script and put it in. But glad you like it, just the same!

    So you two had your first game, huh? Lily, I may need to take you on, LOL!

    It was just luck (not talent)! lol
    Anyone want to play chess? I can try...most likely I won't win. But oh well, playing isn't all about winning, it's about having fun, isn't it?
