Nice

This is pretty awesome, I always wanted to play chess on KT. There are some challenges though
-The computer is quite silly and gives pieces away even on hard
-Movement is a big buggy, sometimes the pieces will make illegal moves and the game will sorta crash

Isn't there a better chess engine that can be transported to the KT?

Exclamation Kind of off-topic, but...

For those that wanted to play Chess on KT, even if not free (1 dollar):
http://www.amazon.com/Chess/dp/B004KACWZW works well. I bought initially for K3, but later saw it avaiable for Touch too.

Hopefully it will be something with clean (non-obfuscated) code.

I just got a kindle touch and I'm having some troubles installing the app because there is no install file. I extracted the Kchess directory on the root of my kindle, but I get lost from here. Once I open my kindle I cannot see the directory nor is there a way to access it and see what I put on there.

Also I cannot install it from my computer, at best I can extract the files on my kindle memory but I do not see these on the kindle.

Could anyone please tell me how to see/run this app once I have copied it to kindle?

Thanks a lot!

  1. install jailbreak http://yifan.lu/p/kindle-touch-jailbreak/
  2. install launcher http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=161263
  3. copy Kchess folder to the extensions folder which will be created after innstallation of launcher
  4. restart Kindle
