AutoIt Chess

Hi!

This is a project I've been working on for quite some time and I'm happy to finally being able to release something that almost works as a complete chess game.

Features:

- A working PvP mode that detects both Check, Checkmate and Stalemate.

- Game engine written completely in C++ for maximum speed.

- Clean looking GDI+ Graphics

- In game assistance that help you see where you can move your piece.

- Animated menus and info screens

- High scores

ToDo:

- Bot (Need more testing of the game play so there is no weird bugs that undermine the bot before I can start working on it)

- Rotation of board when players switch turns.

- Castling

- Better looking info when winning/draw occurs

- Optimize for better speed

- An icon (have any?)

Screenies:

Download:

autoit_chess.zip

IMPORTANT!

If you cannot move the pieces or get an subscript error that means that the Game Engine couldn't be initialized, please download the VC++ 2008 Redist to install the libraries necessary for the game to function correctly.

Have fun! :)

Just tried, I`m impressed, looks very nice and work fine.

I like very much About from your menu. I like the effect of letters to move the mouse.

Very good script. :)

Thanks Andreik, I've spent quite some time on this so your kind words means a lot :)

Yeah, I like the about too, I was actually surprised how well it followed the mouse when I first tried running it. Thought it would look jaggy at first. Also check out High Scores, there's a pretty decent looking fire there o:)

Looks nice!

Chess Icons

Thanks!

Unfortunately I cannot use any of those icons since they look like shit when enlarged ;)

I'm overwhelmed, and also I've gotten a new word in my vocabulary :)

I'm going to start working on the bot as soon as I get some free time :) Just be sure to hunt for bugs in the current version o:)

Hey,

I have to say it looks realy nice!

I think i found a bug, I clicked High scores, and it starts loading the high scores gui (like in your img) but when its almost done (which takes about a full sec.) it starts drawing the background darkgrey from top to bottom and then again with a different grey and so on....

AutoIt 3.2.12.1

Windows XP sp2

Hey again,

Ok, so now i tried to play it, just clicked a white pawn and got pwned tongue.gif

White Pawn selected
C:\PathTo\AutoIt Chess.au3 (975) : ==> Subscript used with non-Array variable.:
Return $call[0]
Return $call^ ERROR

changed to following code (line 969)

Func CanPieceMoveThere($PieceIndex, $Column, $Row)
    $struct = GetStructFromPieces()
    $call = DllCall($hDll, "int:cdecl", "CheckPieceMove", "ptr", DllStructGetPtr($struct), "int", $PieceIndex, "int", $Column, "int", $Row)
   
   
    Return $call[0]

   
    Return False
EndFunc   ;==>CanPieceMoveThere

It fixed the error but i can't play the game, keep getting the '!Move forbidden' message, think its something with the dll or dllcall.

The dll is in the right place (unpacked it again to make sure it wasnt corrupt)

and again,

so i tried the following (line 969):

Func CanPieceMoveThere($PieceIndex, $Column, $Row)
    $struct = GetStructFromPieces()
    $call = DllCall($hDll, "int:cdecl", "CheckPieceMove", "ptr", DllStructGetPtr($struct), "int", $PieceIndex, "int", $Column, "int", $Row)
    ConsoleWrite("CALL: " & $call & " (" & VarGetType($call) & ")" & @CRLF)
    If Not IsArray($call) Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
    _ArrayDisplay($call)
    Return $call[0]
EndFunc   ;==>CanPieceMoveThere

i got the following output in the scite console:

White Pawn selected
CALL: 0 (Int32)
CALL: 0 (Int32)
CALL: 0 (Int32)
CALL: 0 (Int32)
CALL: 0 (Int32)
CALL: 0 (Int32)
CALL: 0 (Int32)
!Move forbidden
White Pawn selected
CALL: 0 (Int32)
CALL: 0 (Int32)
CALL: 0 (Int32)
CALL: 0 (Int32)
!Move forbidden

Hope you can fix it, the game looks very prommosing :)

Try this icons. It`s only white pieces but is easy to make black pieces from white pieces.

Hope you like.

Ok , so i installed the VC++ 2008 Redist, no effect, still can't move any pieces.

BTW: high scores showed correctly once (out of +- 30 views)

I know exactly why this is happening so I will fix it in the next version (using an additional buffer).

Thanks, the icon is only instead for the AutoIt logo so I really only need one. WHich one do you think is best? I really like the rook/castle :)

(ok, i feel stupid now, overlooked the IMPORTANT part o:) )

Ok , so i installed the VC++ 2008 Redist, no effect, still can't move any pieces.

Can you please run this exe? If it doesn't run something went wrong with the VC++ install.
