Monkeyjump is a program for messing around with GNU Go and SGF-files.
I wrote it back in 2005 but decided to release it in 2013, since it was somewhat fun.

What can I use it for?
- Interfacing GNU Go via GTP (the program speaks GTP for you)
- Guessing your way through professional games you might have stored as SGF
- Playing Go against GNU Go, while beeing able to edit the board at any time (this means you have to check for yourself if your move is valid)
- Avoiding Cgoban1 and/or the ascii-interface of GNU Go (Cgoban2 doesn't seem to support GNU Go directly)
- Stepping through an SGF-file
- Saving the pattern of the white stones as an image
- Saving basic SGF-files
- Playing with patterns of stones
- Checking what GNU Go would have played
- Python2 and Pygame (Psyco is optional)
- GnuGo or another GTP-speaking go-playing computer program
- Edit the file "gnugocmd.conf" in order to enable your favorite gtp-compatible program ("gnugo --mode gtp" should work).
- Edit the file "keybindings.conf", so that you know what all the keys does.
- Start the program. You can give a board size as the first argument (9, 13 and 19 are common)
- Loading SGF-files doesn't always give the correct positions. Patches and pull requests are welcome.
