Description:

Knights is a simple chess board for KDE 4. It is a rewrite of the KDE3 Knights.

Its home page with regular updates is at http://noughmad.com/knights.

You can play againts computer engines that support the XBoard protocol (like GnuChess), against anouther player at the same computer, or on the Free Internet Chess Server. It has automatic rule checking and some nice animations.

For compiling, you need KDE as well as libkdegames headers, which are usually found in libkdegames-dev or libkdegames-devel packages.

Packages can be downloaded form build.opensuse.com, however try to use your distribution's version when possible. In any case, please report any problems, bugs, and wishes to bugs.kde.org (product knights).

The source archive includes a README.themes file with info for creating and sharing new themes for Knights. They can be uploaded to kde-look.org, and downloaded directly from Knights.

Due to a recent break of compatibility in KDEGames, versions from 2.5 onward require KDE 4.9 or newer. User of older KDE version should use the 2.4 branch.




Changelog:

Version 2.5.0: Port to new KDEGames library, compatible with KDE 4.9

Version 2.4.2: A handful of usability fixes

Version 2.4.1 introduces support for the UCI protocol, setting the difficulty level of chess engines, game history display, and loading and saving PGN files.

Version 2.4.0 brings voice support, possibility of external control by dbus, and a couple of bug fixes.

Version 2.3.2 is a bugfix release with several fixes, mostly by Dave Kaye. It fixes drag-coused freezes, dropping pieces outside of the board, and a theme appearing twice in the selection dialog.

Version 2.3.1 fixed exactly one bug; the peace captured by en-passant is now properly removed.

The changelog since the last stable release (2.2.0) includes:

- Watching two engines play
- Improved time control support for chess engines
- Better support for the XBoard protocol means Knights can play with more engines, including Crafty, Sloppy, Sjeng and Phalanx.
- Players can now make and receive offer for draw, pause, undo, adjourn and abort. All except Draw are only used when playing on the chess server.
- Players can now undo their moves.
Improved game dialog, with more game options.
- Improved server dialog, with a seek graph.
- Ability to interact with a chess server or a computer engine via a text console.
- Simple chat widget for talking to your remote opponent.
- Selecting and moving pieces by clicking, without dragging.

Trying to build from clean, freshly cloned source (last commit: f1d3153 Improve notation for castling moves). I'm getting the following error:

 openSUSE 12.2 (KDE 4.9 repositories)

No package for openSUSE 12.2? :-(
I updated to KDE 4.9 and Knights was removed. I found out why when I checked the available software. Do you know why it hasn't been included in the Extras repository, not even with the recent 4.9.2 update?

The problem is that KDE games library broke compatibility with 4.9, hence two different versions of Knights. I think the majority of users are still on older versions of KDE, so I kept the packages for the <4.9 version.

I don't use openSUSE, but if you want to have Knights included in their repositories, try writing to their maintainers.

 Mind changing the name?

 
 by Evropi on: Jan 26 2013

Another open source game by the name of Knights already exists, based on the GPL'd source code and CC'd art.

The game is highly innovative and inspired by roguelikes and (possibly) Gauntlet. However, there are no immediate comparisons. And hey, it's a great game. You can find it at:
http://www.knightsgame.org.uk/

So, uhh, would you mind changing the name for your project?

Hello!

I'm sorry for not noticing this earlier, I don't read this site regularly, pleas send me an e-mail (miha@noughmad.eu) for such issues.

Now, I really would mind changing the name. My program is inspired by Knights for KDE3 (http://knights.sourceforge.net/) which was a popular game that I enjoyed. Of course, if you feel strongly about this, I could change it. But please send me a private email so we can discuss the details.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
