Knights - A chess interface (GUI) for the Trinity Desktop Environment

Knights is a graphical chess interface designed to work with TDE. It's designed to be both friendly to new chess players and functional for Grand Masters. Knights is called a chess "interface" because it does not come with it's own computer players. There are several computer players ( Chess Engines ) already. Unfortunatly, most chess engines do not include fully featured GUIs. Instead, they rely on other programs ( like Knights ) to fill the gap.

What Chess Engines can work with Knights?

Knights should support any engine which uses the XBoard protocol developed by Tim Mann. Knights will also offer it's own protocol for future use. To date, the following chess engines have been confirmed to work with. If you know of another, please let we know so we can update this list.

  • GNUChess v4.0 patchlevel 80
  • GNUChess v5.02
  • Crafty v18.09
  • Crafty v18.10
  • KnightCap v3.3
  • Sjeng v10.0
  • BabyChess

List of Knights' key features:

  • Play against yourself, against computer opponents, or against others over the Internet.
  • Customize your board and pieces with over 30 different themes, or make your own!
  • Audio cues help alert you to important events.
  • Novice players can preview potential moves.
  • Save your unfinished matches and play them again later.
