Toledo Atomchess (c) Copyright 2015-2019 Oscar Toledo G. http://www.nanochess.org/ https://github.com/nanochess This Github repository contains the x86 assembler source code for Toledo Atomchess and Toledo Atomchess Reloaded. Toledo Atomchess allows the player to play against the computer, the computer only plays basic legal chess movements, no promotion, no castling and no enpassant. All this in 356 bytes bootable from a floppy disk or 352 bytes if using the COM file. Also there is a HACK mode version reaching 326 bytes with COM file, or 330 bytes bootable. Toledo Atomchess Reloaded plays full chess movements and currently sizes up to 779 bytes. It hasn't been optimized further because of lack of time. Check the source code for further details. In order to assemble it, you must download the Netwide Assembler (nasm) from www.nasm.us Use this command line: nasm -f bin toledo_atomchess.asm -o toledo_atomchess_disk.img nasm -f bin toledo_atomchess_reloaded.asm -o atomr.img Or this command line for compatibility with bootOS (see my repositories): nasm -f bin toledo_atomchess.asm -Dbootos -o toledo_atomchess_bootos.img It can be run with DosBox or qemu: qemu-system-x86_64 -fda toledo_atomchess_disk.img qemu-system-x86_64 -fda atomr.img Thanks to following people: * HellMood for suggesting the translation of Toledo Atomchess to nasm syntax and some optimization suggestions. * Peter Ferrie (qkumba) for suggestions. * qu1j0t3 for providing a makefile. * theshich for optimization suggestions. Enjoy it! Useful links: Original homepage of Toledo Atomchess http://nanochess.org/chess6.html >> THE BOOK << Do you would like more details on the inner workings?
