TI-Chess Homepage Moves to tict.ticalc.org
Posted by Eric on 13 September 2000, 20:57 GMT

The TI-Chess Team has joined the ranks of ticalc.org's hosted sites. Its home page can now be found at http://tict.ticalc.org/, so be sure to go there for your daily dosage of creamy goodness. *cough*cough*</reference to previous news editor>*cough*cough*.

Update (Nathan): The TI-Chess Team website now has a message board. Aside from general questions about their products, it also has a TI-GCC programming forum. As Thomas Nussbaumer says, "If the board becomes useful depends completely on you!", so definitely check it out!

I would think tichess.ticalc.org or ti-chess.ticalc.org would be a bit more intuitive but oh well. In any case, good job TI-Chess Team! If only the z80 calcs could handle that kind of AI maybe we could have some decent user-versus-computer games as well.

Maybe someone could try to hack any good Z80 chess program that does not require much RAM and plays well and quickly like Cyrus chess for ZX Spectrum 16/48 K.

"Chessmaster 2000" ran on a Commodore 64. Ok, so it had 64k of ram to play with, but on a 2MHz cpu with only 3 8-bit registers, it managed to play chess & do a 3d-rendered view of the board. Unless you're some grandmaster champion, some of the z80 calcs should be able to put up a reasonable challenge.

'course a 3-yr old could probly beat me at chess...

I am really sick of people picking on the z80 calcs, mainly the 83. I realize that it has an 8 bit processor and around 28k of ram, but not everybody needs a CAS and firmware that crashes a lot. I am not trying to start a flame war. I realize that the 68k calcs have superior hardware, but not many people need it and there are lots of people using the low end calcs, and it meets their needs.. Just a couple of thoughts.

Creamy goodness.
Creamy goodness.

Is that satisfactory or should I say it a few more times?

"Creamy goodness" was a phrase I stole from Phil about a year ago.

Give credit where it's due :-)

Well, it's certainly nice to see shreds of Nick Disabato living on in this web site, although I can hardly imagine him being yesterdays news already. I never got to write a sappy good-bye in the other post, but I share all of your feelings in that I am crestfallen with Nick's departure. At any rate, I am also crestfallen to realize that the 83 will not in the near future contain an AI that will be suitibal enough for me (even though I'm not that great at chess.) Oh well, at least I can bask in the glory of the action RPG once Zelda is completed.

Thanks, I think.
I've posted news articles in the past too, maybe 2 or 3 every month, so I'm not exactly new to this or anything...however being without Nick as the full-time editor certainly makes the job more difficult...

You sure like the word "crestfallen," don't you :)

PS: Got everything packed. The computer takes up more boxes than all my other things combined. I'm leaving in a half-hour. Heatfactory will be up at 10:00 AM my time at the latest.

Thanks for everyone's patience. :)

It was my word of the week. Right now it's 'ex officio', so I'll figure out a way to use it, I'm sure.

"Nick was easily viewed by Dan as a good web page maintainer ex officio his work with the ticalc.org project. . ."

If someone is interested: I have installed a message board on the tict homepage today. This message board holds also a forum on TIGCC programming where you can load up any TIGCC programming related posts.
