capers

Play checkers against the computer and study draughts games from books.

This contains the full source code to both the python GUI and the C engines. Prebuilt binaries can be found at http://arton.cunst.net/capers/index.html. To compile yourself, clone the repo and issue "make" from the project directory, then run "./capers".

Directory overview:

  • ./ application starter, main Makefile, license, misc stuff
  • cake/ the cake engine by Martin Fierz
  • cliche/ a commandline host for cb-engines, two more engines by MF
  • share/ pixmaps for the board, glade layout, engine runtime dir
  • doc/ some documentation, not all
  • games/ some example pdn game books
  • debian/ for dpkg creation

Capers depends on python and gtk, and pygtk, which glues them together, version 2.4 of pygtk at least; also, it needs gnome canvas to display the board, and python-ctypes, to talk to the engines. It should work on most linux distributions, provided the dependencies are met; It might also work on Windows, if you manage to collect all the above packages.

Happy hacking!
