    you know what would be funny?

    if instead of actually playing it, we have to program an AI that plays the chess game for us, and see who can come up with the winning AI. :]

    it sounds like fun but i think chess AI is toward the top of the scale when it comes to complexity

    Even though chess AI may be complex, all the program has to do is win against other entries from cprogramming.com. This might not turn out to be complex at all. I would start with 1. e4 no matter what. 2. Bc4 no matter what. 3. Qh5 no matter what. 4. Qxf7. Then a check: Did I just win? If not, my program resigns.

    I think chess will be too complex, at least I won't have enough time to participate.
    Something like the "Connect 4" contest from a while ago would be really fun... If only I had noticed that contest!

    [edit]
    We're getting off-topic, I believe The Brain ment a real human vs human contest . That might be fun and not too time-consuming.

    The only reason I read this topic was to see if someone said that

    Looks like a cool program.. but why can't I see any pieces on the board..?? (all I get when I run the .exe is an empty board)

    the program is a bit rough edged (created when I hardly had any good programming experience)..

    to solve the problem you will have to extract the project folder to C drive and then run the exe.. and the AI is too simple to beat but it does give chess noobs a run..
