Graphical interface to programs that play the game of Go and use the Go Text Protocol (GTP), such as GNU Go.
GoGui has many special features for Go program developers. It supports direct communication with the Go engine over a command shell. The Go engine can be replaced while keeping the current board position. Commands can be configured to display their response graphically on the board.
Download gogui-1.4.9.zip. Create a folder (directory) "gogui". Open the zip file and go in the directory "gogui-1.4.9", copy the files to the directory "gogui". That's it!
The gogui.cmd file
With this file the program GoGui starts. I have made a gogui.cmd file with the following contents;
@echo off set path=[drive: java]\JAVA160\bin set BEGINLIBPATH=[drive: java]\JAVA160\bin set CLASSPATH=[drive: gogui]\gogui\lib [drive: gogui] cd [drive: gogui]\gogui java -Duser.home=[drive: gogui]\gogui -jar .\lib\gogui.jar 2>goguibugs.txtI use 2 separate folders (directories), one for Java and one for GoGui with the files created by this program. The references used in the cmd file;
should be replaced with real drive letters. Edit and save the file "gogui.cmd" from the distribution. This file is copied to the "gogui" folder (directory). Furthermore, different paths?, adjust according to your needs. Create a new program object. Specify the path and file name: "[drive: gogui]\gogui\gogui.cmd". In the tabpage Session check the boxes "OS/2 window", "Running as an icon" and "Close Window to end program". In the tabpage General you can enter the name "GoGui". You find enclosed in the file a GoGui OS/2 icon.
Parameters / options explained
In the file you can find the above command file (all driveletters are set to C:) and an OS/2 GoGui icon: gogui-ecs.zip.
