Advanced Chess game with impressive computer AI.


If that is an impressive AI then the non impressive ones must really suck.
It seems to just play to it's own plan regardless of what you do.

Actually, it's just impressive for being JavaScript.

Javascript? Is that like a coffee table book or something?

It's a client side scripting language that is useful for small things. Your browser executes it and because of it's nature it can't really be that complex.

It's usually used for simple things like switching one image for another.

The author of this JavaScript really did put together an impressive script. Doing a chess game at all in JavaScript is really impressive, much less one that has a bit of intelligence at all.

Think of it this way, the code for this game is only a bit more text than what's been posted to this thread.

So from a JavaScript developer standpoint, it's really impressive. I've got a lot of respect for the author.

Ahhh, OK. I remember that stuff. It's not whether your code works, it's how many lines you need and how long it takes to run.

Haven't done any code for about 9 years now.

Well it's not really the size either.

Put it this way, imagine a 2 story lego house. It might not be much when you compare it to the strength of a brick building, but the material used for it is what makes it impressive.
