After some installation problems (had to do some manual changes to Omega.bmp) i got it running. Those changes were the following: get a printscreen of the omega board, edit it to fit the original picture size, save it on top of the original omega.bmp. Though I liked the game idea, i must say the AI is too easy. I got an easy win (took back 2 moves only :) ) in a 1st try. Maybe that's because I have ~22XX ELO rating in regular chess.. huh, anyway this is smth i'd like to play in regular tournament, as it throws away all those boring 20moves depth opening lines.
