Hehe, the piggy-faced knight was found somewhere on the internets and converted to multicolour then fixed by hand...

Rough: Tom-Cat makes the EF intros, I think he's made them all (?) except the initial menu system we used when EF arrived.

So he painted / converted all the pics and coded the menu's.

yeah I rough(harr)ly remember that no-ani-option, but since those were what made it different from other chess games, it spoiled all the fun :)

As I said before and as Lemming also pointed out, AI of BC is definetely smart enough for lots of fun.

Who painted the piggy-faced knight in the N0 intro? Sweet.

q0W: that would have been quite difficult to test for them as Battle Chess was published in 1989.

Ryk: Disk accessing animations can be turned off by default.

Dudes, I can assure y'all gonna have much more fun trying to beat the BC AI at level 9 first and THEN going back to Colossus Chess or The Final Chesscart or an actual board or whatever if you feel like it wasn't enough challenging :)

Nice realease! Wanted to try this game anyway!

@TheRyk: According to 64'er 01/86 (page 40/41) you should stick to Colossus! BattleChess wasn't compared, but following your link in addition proves it.

@Count: Ha, found sth:
The table confirms my guess more or less, Battle Chess AI is average compared to others such as Colussus, but probably still good enough to beat me :)

Ryk: afair there even was a test in 64'er Magazine letting all chess programs compete against each other. Colossus 4 vs Battle was also done.

What MacGyver sez. Back then, you only played it for half an hour and once you giggled enough about the animations, you were fed up with the loading times and never touched it again. Now we can really find out about the AI's strength. Im not very optimistic about that, though, and _expect_ that I'll stick to Colossus, in the end, but who knows, now it's actually possible to try.

I already love the idea of this game as an EasyFlash version :)
