As a follow-up on the previous posting and for users that want to experiment with a remote chess server without setting one up themselves, I have, very temporarily, set up a remote chess server with various engines at ports 2000 through 2005 on aartbik.dyndns.org. Simply type this hostname and one of the ports in Chess for Android and let me know if you were able to connect!

Although it was lots of fun, I am shutting down this temporary remote chess server again. If you want to experiment again with connecting a client to a server, feel free to drop me a PM or email.

No, for Android devices (smartphones, tablets, Google TV, etc.)

An upcoming release of Chess for Android will make "network socket engines" first class citizens, i.e. with support for all features that ordinary third party engines enjoy (including saving the options that were selected during first import, excluding the host:port). This will make it possible to run tournaments between locally running engines, and an engine running on a much more powerful remote chess server . Folkert van Heusden found an interesting alternative use of this feature for his engine POS. Since POS is written in Java which he could not easily convert into a stand-alone ARM binary, he wrote an Android wrapper around POS that acts as a chess server, named PosForAndroid , but running locally. This way, he can import POS in Chess for Android. I am running some tests tournaments and will post some results shortly.

Version 4.0 of Chess for Android focuses on localization and internationalization . All user facing text (except the chess notation and engine messages) has been translated into the following languages.

  • English (the default)
  • Dutch (translated myself)
  • German (many thanks to Philip Stutz)
  • Hebrew (many thanks to Haran Talmon)
  • Polish (many thanks to Michal Kaczmarek)
  • Spanish (many thanks to Krizia Lopez)
  • Swedish (many thanks to Anton Hansson)

If you spot any mistakes, if you would like to see support for other languages or, even better, if you would like to help with further localization, please drop me a private note.
