Game of Chess Day 1



About 24 hours after starting, here is a video. I have most of the rules implemented in a generic way (still to do en passant, castling and double pawn moves but these may be treated as special cases). As you move it calculates which pieces you are threatening and which threaten you. These are highlighted in red and green.

I will use a heuristic combining the number of your pieces threatened and the number of the enemy threatened for the AI, to help decide on the next move.

AI opponent is now working! :) I had a couple of bugs to fix in the pawn direction and heuristic where it was producing crazy moves, but the moment I knew it was working when it thrashed me within about 10 moves.

Ok I'm not very good chess player, but it was amazing to see how good it is from some simple rules. At the moment it is only doing 1 move lookahead. I will try and write another blog post showing it tomorrow and hopefully have some more improvements.

I cannot wait to see what you show in your blog post! :) I'm almost ready for my post as well. Just fixing up some small stuff... You're well ahead of me that is for sure! I'm not very good at committing to times haha... always get pulled away by other things. :D I'm amazed how fast you're putting this together! Keep it up!
