(11) may run from archive
(12) comes exepacked to reduce memory usage (should be archived for max. effect)



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
CONTENTS
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

directory src ... the source (examine src\readme.txt for details)
directory tools ... contains a tool to generate chess puzzle files
directory bin89 ... exepacked TI89 version + corresponding launcher
directory bin92p ... exepacked TI92p version + corresponding launcher



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
!!!!!!!!! IMPORTANT NOTICE !!!!!!!!!!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Always start TI-Chess from the commandline and not from any explorer-like
program to prevent crashes. Most of the available explorer-like programs cannot
handle large nostub programs correctly, even if they may start them your
calculator may crash some time later.

UPDATE:

The only available explorer which handles TI-Chess correctly is the
TICT-Explorer. With the TICT-Explorer you don't even need the launcher program,
but you can start file tichess.ppg directly.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
STARTING TI-CHESS
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The necessary files for the TI89 can be found in directory bin89 and for the
TI-92plus in directory bin92p.

Steps:

(1) if you have a previous version of TI-Chess on your calculator, please
delete it first!

(2) upload ticstart.9xz and tichess.9xy to your TI92plus
or ticstart.89z and tichess.89y to your TI89

(3) archive file tichess.ppg for better memory usage

(4) type: ticstart() and press [ENTER]

NOTE: If you want to solve the chess puzzle which comes with TI-Chess
upload file ticpro.9xs into your TI92plus or ticpro.89s into your
TI89



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THE MENU SYSTEM
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The main menu can be reached from the game window by pressing [ESC] if it's
your turn. Press [ESC] again to go back to the game window.

To select a menu entry just locate the cursor on it by using the cursor keys
([LEFT] and [RIGHT]) and press [ENTER] or [DOWN].

(1) NEW GAME: Starts a new game

(2) LOAD/SAVE: Loads, saves or exports a game. The used slot may be selected by
using [UP] and [DOWN].
Press [ENTER] to load or save or [ESC] to cancel.
Note: game slot ticsave0 cannot be used for saving, because
it is used by the automatic load/save mechanism.

EXPORT Game will write the moves so far to textvariable "ticexpt".
This variable can be directly viewed on the calculator with
its text editor or you can download it to your computer for
further processing.

(3) TRAIN (Train your Brain):
Loads chess puzzles. The chess puzzle may be selected by
using [LEFT] and [RIGHT].
Press [ENTER] to load the selected puzzle or [ESC] to cancel.

NOTE: "Mate in 2" puzzles may be solved by TI-Chess.
Load a chess puzzle, set the level 3 and change the
side so that the program calculates the next move.
"Mate in 3" puzzles may be solved at level 5.
"Mate in 4" puzzles cannot be solved by TI-Chess
correctly until now, because level 7 would be
necessary for it.

(4) OPTIONS: To change any of the settings locate the cursor on it
and press [LEFT] or [RIGHT]. Pressing [ESC] will leave
the settings menu and stores the new settings.

entry STRENGTH ... Strength of calculator's AI
entry AUTOLOAD ... Enables/disables automatically loading
from game slot ticsave0 at program start
entry AUTOSAVE ... Enables/disables automatically saving
to game slot ticsave0 at program exit
entry HASHING ... If hashing is ON the program will allocate
additionally memory (+20kB) during runtime
to speedup its calculations. The program
must be restarted if you change this
parameter !!!
entry REQUESTS ... Enables/disables YES/NO requests.
entry SAVE MVS ... Enables/disables storing of moves in save
slot. If disabled just the position is saved.
entry PIECESET ... sets the active pieceset (1 or 2)

(5) HELP: Displays help page

(6) ABOUT: Displays credits page

(7) EXIT: Leaves program (key F5 as shortcut for exit everywhere !)



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

the save file.
