    Default ChessMind for a ChessWorld

    HI,

    I'm not sure which section this would go in.

    I have to write a ChessMind for an assignment. It's for a ChessWorld where minds can run each other and take each others pieces.

    I need help on how to actually start it. I know if I can get one piece to work I can figure the rest out..

    Here's the skeleton for it..

     
    import org.w2mind.net.*;
     
    public class Skeleton Mind implements Mind {
     
     
     
    	public void endrun() throws RunError {
     
    	}
    	public void newrun() throws RunError {
     
    	}
     
    	public Action getaction(State s) throws RunError {
    		// always try to move the same pawn, causing an invalid move forfeit quickly
    		String fen = s.toString();
    		return new Action("12,28");
    	}
    }

    Any advice to get it started is greatly appreciated..

    Can you explain what problems you are having?

    I've never seen the package that the code is using.

    We have to design moves for a ChessWorld and upload them to the world.

    This might explain it a bit better

    CA318 practical

    or this

    The World-Wide-Mind project

    I basically don't know how to get it started. If I can get one chess piece to move then I will be able to code the rest. It's just the initial start..

    Sorry, I know nothing about that package. Is there a forum for its users? This forum is for helping java programmers. If you have questions about how to write a java program using the Java SE classes, post them here. I don't know where you can post questions about the package you are using.

    No, there's no forums what so ever. It's a pain I know. Just thought I'd give this a try..

    Thanks for the info..

    There are several others here, maybe someone else knows about it.
