Chess program for playing and analyzing games
Crafty is a rapidly developing chess engine with more and more features being added regularly. It can play, analyze, and even annotate games for you. Crafty can utilize tablebases; these are available for FreeBSD in the related ports.
The files bitmaps.tgz and sound.tgz are available in your doc directory, usually /usr/local/share/doc/crafty. The bitmaps are for html annotations performed by crafty - they should be unpacked into the directory you normally analyze games into, and all should be fine…
The sounds are for move announcements. Unpack the archive somewhere, and have a look at the ‘speak’ script to customize for your use, if desired.
22.1 -> New “skill” command that can be used to “dumb down” crafty.
