Can you provide me with a complete code which represents the chess board and it's pieces where my task will only be to make the program more intelligent. With good graphics please.

Hi Drake009,

You seem quite intent on writing a chess program.  This is your 5th query in a week looking for "how tos", 4 of them graphics specific.

Perhaps you should learn to walk before you run and start with an easier project.

I see what you mean some1 suggested that i start with a tic tac toe but am not that motivated to do a tic tac toe am interseted in Chess programs so if you have a suggestion say maybe a web site where they deal with computer ches programs you may give it to me even if they use Java am very comfortable with it.

Thanx Kdo am using Microsoft Visual C++. anyway like you said(walk b4 i run) i think i have to tackle these task using Java first since am most comfortable with it( i have already made great progress with java) but you can still augment it with C since my original idea was to use C because of it's effieciency. I also have microsoft Visual J++ 6.0 and JGRASP on my machine so your advice is welcome. Thank you.

If I were you, I'd strongly consider using C++.  Both C++ and Java use C as their "foundation" so the languages will look very similar.

In this case, C++ has the distinct advantage of have GUI APIs built into the language and base libraries so graphics will be much easier than trying to backstitch them into C.  Plus, there's a lot more help available for C++ graphics than C graphics.

Good Luck,
