JChessBoard is a chess board written in Java that can be connected to another JChessBoard via a direct TCP/IP connection. No Internet Chess Server is required for playing.
Download the file JChessBoard-1.5.zip. Create a folder(directory) "jchessboard" or something similar which fits your needs. Open the zip file and go into the folder(directory) "JChessBoard-1.5". Copy then all the contents of this folder(directory) to the new created folder(directory). That's all!
The used chess.cmd file
JChessBoard works with Open JDK in OS/2-eCS, but I didn't test the network. I have made a "chess.cmd" file with the following contents;
@echo off set CLASSPATH= set BEGINLIBPATH=[drive: java]\JAVA160ga5\bin set path=[drive: java]\JAVA160ga5\bin [drive: jchessboard] cd [drive: jchessboard]\jchessboard java -Duser.home=[drive: jchessboard]\jchessboard -jar jchessboard.jar 2>jchessboard-bugs.txtI use 2 separate folders (directories), one for Java and one for JChessBoard with the files created by this program. The references used in the cmd file;
should be replaced by real drive letters. Adjust the file from the distribution below, ie. different drive and directories. Save "chess.cmd" and copy it to the "jchessboard" folder (directory).
Create a new program object. Specify the path and file name: "[drive: jchessboard]\jchessboard\chess.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 "JChessBoard". The download also has an OS/2 icon.
Parameters / options explained
In the file you can find the above command file (all drive letters are on set to C:) and an OS/2 JChessBoard icon: chess-ecs.zip.
