Release Notes

Huo Chess is one of the smallest in size open source chess engines. It is customizable and can be used as a teaching tool for the underlying logic of chess AI engines. Please see below on how to use it or customize it.

HOW TO PLAY: In order to play, just enter the coordinates of the starting and the ending square of your move - by following the directions of the program.

HOW TO CUSTOMIZE: Huo Chess version 0.82 is significantly small in size (52.5 - 61.5 KB depending on the edition) Note: The Huo Chess version 0.82 has deep thinking capability (up to 20 moves: 10 half-moves for the white and 10 half-moves for the black pieces) and plays decent chess. The program has also an opening book capability, which means that anyone can optimize the program by adding his/her own opening moves data in the respective folder Huo Chess Opening Book (which should be in the same directory with the executable). Moreover, you can also optimize the way Huo Chess thinks by changing the CountScore function and the way the computer values the pieces or the chessboard position.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: Huo Chess version 0.82 requires .NET Framework 2.0 or above in order to run. You can download that framework from the Microsoft site for free. In order to change the source code and re-compile, you will need the Microsoft Visual Studio 2008. You can download the Visual Studio 2008 Express Edition from the Microsoft site for free.
