Chess


Could anyone give advice on installing and configuring Spike 1.2 Turin chess engine? The tarball is on my Desktop. Should I move it to opt to unpack? Do I need xboard to make it work? I am using Jin to play on fics. thanks

Unpack it and you'll see a Readme.txt. it explains what to do.

Did you check your repository first? Installing it via package management is a lot simpler than compiling it.

I use jose to play (much better than xboard), you can use all xboard and uci engines with it. You can also use knights, which is part of kde and looks nice. It lacks options for analysis though but it's good for letting 2 engines play against each other (I have around 20 engines installed and sometimes like to see them compete with different settings).
For analysis there is also scid.
