Playing a Simple Chess Program

Chess Program

I've been sent a simple chess java applet written back in 1999. The owner wants to modify it slightly to add a bit more feedback and track the moves it makes.

Even though it was updated last to run with Java 1.3 (and some method calls have been depreciated) it doesn't take much to stick it into a new NetBeans project to get it going with the latest JDK.

It's also a pretty good chess player although I've yet to find the difficulty setting..

I also play chess, yahoo in particular and was hoping to get a program that could be used / modified to walk through / replay a formerly played game.

Is there more to your article that was “clipped”?
