Chess module

I'm looking to see if anyone has worked on the chess module to update to new xoops ?
I just downloaded the new suico module with youtube fix
It works great
I just got some new users registered today and they are checking things out
using modified xswatch theme it is an invite only community for a loved beach location.
Things are looking great so far but looking for more things to add like ability to play each other in chess.
Other interesting ideas would also be appreciated
I <3 Xoops

Re: Chess module

ok,
just my 2 cents ideas...

Try to use assessment to test knowledge of the flora and fauna near this famous beach

Fun survey (xoopspol or other modules)

You can organize a photo contest with the excellent wggallery module.
1 - You impose a theme
2 - People offer photos of this beach for the competition with the imposed theme
3 - You close the proposals
4 - You open the contest for 1 week (or 1 month) by activating the votes only at that time for this album "contest"
5 - You offer a mini gift to the first 3
Many advantages:
- Lots of publicity around this event
- Many people will register to vote (good for you site)
- You can probably reuse the photos for your site, if they are free of rights


NB - Google traduction...

Re: Chess module

create new game page missing game preponderances choice
Game type:

You may optionally provide a board setup position, using FEN (Forsyth-Edwards Notation). If omitted, the standard board setup will be used.
FEN setup:

after chosing and submit I get Confirm your game preferences
Game type:
*error*

I installed new shoutout module works great so far

Re: Chess module

@miktre,

I made a few minor changes so the module will install. You can now create new games. I have not done any extensive testing but it appears that most features are working.

Drag-and-drop chess piece movement doesn't work (yet) and there are several formatting issues on page display but it looks like most of the functionality of the module is now working.

Please take a look at it and let us know what you find.

Download my latest changes at https://github.com/zyspec/chess

Re: Chess module

Great I downloaded new version and it works
I will keep testing
But another question:
When I downloaded it was chess-master
I forgot to change name and did an install
It now shows up at bottom of my modules page with no name
when I try to uninstall it goes to a white page?
After changing the name to chess it works great but still listed at bottom of modules page unable to remove or uninstall
Any suggestions on how to remove?

If it works fine, then keep it as it is, since my changes don't provide any new features, only upgrades to the code for PHP 7
