    My CHESS Game..

    Hi All,
    Me and my friends are building a console based chess game for an assignment..... Please check it out and give me your coments... you can move around the pawns.... thats it... (note white starts first and then the black..) the other color cannot be moved without moving the proper one...

    TO move left click the pawn you want to move and to place it on a specified block ... right click the mouse button on that particular block...

    Please post your valuable sugestions.. And we are planing to add backtracking algorithms to make the computer play against the user...
    The game is not yet complete...
    You have to first extract all the files to make it run..

    hmmm it's pretty good for being in it's beginning stages. You're right that you're images do lose a lot of quality.

    Can you post the code you use to load the bitmaps?

    I liked it. I thought that it was good for it's beginning stages. But, the image quilty is definetly low. When you add the backtracking algorithms for the single player mode it will greatly improve the game, in my opinion. Over all it was good, so far.

    I changed the color to chades of balck and grey... It looks much better now.. but it would be better if i was able to display the color properly.. Any way i have attached the new chess game with the better apperance.. have a look and sugest please to make it look better.. if yiu can see my present image loading code and correct something you are surely welcome...


    Well the code for loading one of the images is as follows..
    Code:
    void wking(int sx,int sy)
    {
       char a;
       ifstream ifil;
       ifil.open("C:\\project\\image\\wking.bmp", ios::in);
       for(int i=0;i<54;i++)ifil.get(a);
       for(i=0;i<60;i++)
         for(int j=0;j<40;j++)
         {
    	ifil.get(a);
    	ifil.get(a);
    	ifil.get(a);
    	int g=a,k;
    	if(a<0)g+=256;
    	k=g/16;
    	setcolor(k);
    
    	if(colorflag==0)
    	k=wcolor;
    while(k!=WHITE && k!=0 )
    {
     k=k-1;
    }
    if(k==WHITE)
    k=WHITE;
    else
    k=8;
    
    
    	if(a!=0)putpixel(sx+j,sy+200-i,k);
         }
    ifil.close();
    }

    Code:
    ifil.get(a);
    ifil.get(a);
    ifil.get(a);
    Is it just me or are you discarding two bytes here? As far as I can see, you're only using one color... doing manipulations on it and using it as other colors.

    I tried out your bitmap loading routine on SDL (I don't have/use Borland) and with a few modifications I was able to load the bitmap perfectly.

    This is my code, you can probably implement it using BGI.
    Code:
    void wking(int sx,int sy,display *screen)
    {
    	char r,g,b;
    	ifstream ifil("wking.bmp", ios::in);
    	ifil.seekg(54, ios::beg);
    
    	for (int i = 0; i < 60; i++)
    	{ 
    		for (int j = 0; j < 40; j++)
    		{
    			ifil.get(b);
    			ifil.get(g);
    			ifil.get(r);
    			DrawPixel(screen,sx+j,sy+200-i,r,g,b);
    		}
    	}
    	ifil.close();
    }
    Here's a screenie of the bitmap it loads (as you can see, flawless):
