Freeware Chinese Checkers Program
Last Updated 25th January, 1998
Here is a freeware version of chinese checkers written in C.
Because this is freeware please advise me of any bugs, suggested
improvements and any other constructive comments. By doing so you will receive
free upgrades, via the internet, if or when this
program becomes shareware. It uses a graphical VGA playing board and the
mouse is used for making moves.
It now uses smart enough play that it has even taught me stuff about strategic play.
(That is it is new stuff I didn't know before). This is because it incorporates
artificial intelligence into its move making.
The Super VGA version
should work with any of the following chipsets (see below). If
you don't have a supported chipsets download the
VGA version instead.
The size of both downloads is approximately 160 kb. Please read the README.TXT
file inside the zipped files.
Some people have advised me that they can't get this program to run on their
Windows 95 or NT Turbo Charged Pentium with Mega-Mega memory capacity. On
these machines they get out of memory errors, general protection faults,
or unable to perform I/O mapping messages. I suspect this is a video
card compatibility problem. Unfortunately, as I don't have unlimited resources
and access to a multiplicity of video cards, I have not yet been able to
determine the exact cause. So until I do please try the standard VGA graphics game
instead. I have not heard any reports so far to
say that it doesn't work. Sorry about the graphics quality though.
If this doesn't fix it please let me know.
- Cirrus Logic
- Trident VGA 8900 - might work with later chip numbers.
- Mach 32
- ARK Logic - (Will not autodetect, must edit LIBVGA.CFG)
- ATI SVGA
- Avance Logic 2228/2301
