Starting rules:

Quote

Attrition

-After a piece has been taken, the following team must also immediately take a piece or their opponent can move the opposing king one square in any direction. A king cannot be moved into check in this manner, nor does it prevent a king from castling if it ever finds itself back in its start position without having been conventionally "moved".
i.e. if black takes a piece, then white must immediately take a piece or black can move white's king one square in any direction on their next turn.

Pawns may move backward as well as forward. They may not take or check backward. They promote on the enemy's back line as normal.

Not sure how to do the board yet. Anyone out there with Photoshop skills who can be the boardkeeper?

I can't even find any shareware that can be used for these purposes :(

Help!

Paint.net does the trick. Or Paint from Windows 7 should, too...

Perhaps you could do it then, master of the Kentoshop?

I was hoping for an actual chessboard simulator but they, inconceivably, appear not to exist.

Erm... I'd be a very unreliable boardmaster I'm afraid. I have lots to do and... yeah. :( Sorry

Can no one do the board?

Technically I could've adapted my automatic Diplomacy board php thingy to do it, but I didn't ¬_¬

This is a really quick hack of Diplomap.php3 thingy if you wanted to adapt it for Chess...

<?
Header("Content-Type: image/png");

$board=ImageCreateFromPNG("board.png"); // Load in the pieces like this
$whitepawn=ImageCreateFromPNG("whitepawn.png"); // And so on...

imagecolortransparent($pawn, imagecolorallocate($army, 255, 0, 255)); //Background colour is Magenta

$border=ImageColorAllocate($image, 0, 0, 0);
$text=ImageColorAllocate($image, 0, 0, 0);

$fArray = file("nomicchessdata.csv"); // Loads a CSV file with the piece positions. CSVs are dead easy to edit.

foreach ($fArray as $fLineNum => $fData) { // Iterate over the file

list ($piecetype,$x,$y) = explode(",",$fData); // Each line just contains the x and y coordinates of the piece

if($piecetype=="WhitePawn"){imagecopymerge($board, $whitepawn, $x-10, $y-10, 0, 0, 20,
30, 100);};; // I can't remember what all these numbers do.

ImagePNG($board);
ImageDestroy($board);
?>

You can then just put this in IMG tags, and it will always point to the current board, or go to the site and do Save Image As and then rehost it. Either way.
