Someone needs to say this. That page is 'too loud' and difficult to navigate. It is rather painful on the eyes. It needs a webmaster.

I am not sure where to put this. My bookmark for the Gothic Chess comment areas points to dead space. Anyway, here goes: ============= The 2005 Gothic Chess Computer World Championship will be held online this year at the http://www.GothicChessLive.com website. Everyone is invited to watch, and if you have written a Gothic Chess program, participation is free! We have one candidate from Iran this year, so we can neither charge an entrance fee nor award any prize money in case this person enters and/or wins (USA citizens cannot transaction any money with Cuba, Iran, and a few other countries.) All participants will be mentioned in an article appearing in the June 2006 issue of the International Computer Games Association Journal. The 2004 event was reported on at the Chessville.com website: http://www.chessville.com/GothicChess/ComputerWorldChampionships.htm For rules and registration, as well as playing times and login information, visit: http://s13.invisionfree.com/Gothic_Chess_Forum/index.php?act=SC&c=5 Come watch the best programs play for the title of the world's best!
Actually, there is a song they wrote called 'Who's Behind The Door' that contains possibly the most curt, and most thought-provoking lyric ever written: 'Looking out to the stars, think about what you are.' And if you do think about it, it is rather profound.
I just read through some of the comments on here about ChessV and Gothic Chess. Some were not 100% on the mark. First of all, ChessV was given a one-year Gothic Chess license from November 2004 to November 2005. ChessV played in the first, bi-annual Gothic Chess Computer World Championship. You can read more about this on chessville here: http://www.chessville.com/GothicChess/ComputerWorldChampionships.htm There was also some discussion about the graphic which was displayed by the ChessV engine. Greg is confusing two issues. I did contact him about something regarding Gothic Chess, but it it was not the item he mentioned. After his license expires and is not renewed, the subsequent versions of ChessV could not contain a Gothic Chess setup, and that is all. I also contacted somebody about an image shown on Wikkepedia under Gothic Chess. It was ORIGINALLY one I had drawn and is widely in use. The one that replaced it was a ChessV board's image of Gothic Chess. Again, I believe the sands of time have led to Greg confusing issues. I never said what was represented by him or others.
Gothic Chess Live, the 'beta site', is now up and running. http://www.GothicChessLive.com is the website. Check your emails for the password mailed to you. Hope to see you there.
John Vehre? Where did you disappear to? Waaaaaaay back when we were playing a friendly Gothic Chess match via email, you had me on the ropes, then one fine day your email bounced! I am at Go[email protected] now, FYI. Hope to chat with you later. --Ed
