Hi,

My team and I are working on a checkers game called: "Checkers Genius 2".

Was hoping some people can play with the current alpha version
and provide suggestions or comments about our progress.
(both Windows® and Linux versions are currently available)

This game is open-source too, so if you care to look at the source
then feel completely free to download it!
( game engine uses: SDL1.2+OpenGL® )

I get this when I try to execute the program:[code]SDL (Everything) initialized
X Error of failed request: BadLength (poly request too large or internal Xlib length error)
Major opcode of failed request: 65 (X_PolyLine)
Serial number of failed request: 13
Current serial number in output stream: 14
[/code]

I am using ubuntu 11.04 64 bits, SDL 1.2 and g++-4.5.2.

[/quote]Hi,

Thank you for downloading and playing (err, running) the game.
I run Ubuntu 11.04 64Bit and the game builds and runs fine on my end.
Here is a screenshot of the game running on my Ubuntu 11.04 64Bit:

So the game builds ok, but has error when running it.
What graphics card do you have and are the proprietary display drivers installed?
[b]Game requires OpenGL® hardware acceleration to run.[/b]
(I know OGL is overkill for a simple checkers game)

Oh, never mind then: I never managed to get OpenGL to work properly on my laptop (HP Pavillion dm4). I'll try again on a more properly-configured computer.[/quote]Hi,

No problem, let me know what you think when you do play it, thanks...
