On windows 7 64-bit using 64-bit JRE, Jin for windows (jin.exe) won't start. You have to use jin.jar (double click on it) to start the app. Also, the Documentation link has been down for a very long time. That said, JIn it's my favorite chess client (on windows AND linux)
Great and neat piece of software if you're into chess.
I admire this program, thanks
Great. You are great!
Best Linux chess client (FICS) I have found. Would like to see these features added: Button for Seek (with my time) Button for 'Congrats', and maybe 'Hello'
If you don't have your own computer, then Jin is the best default way you can access the Free Internet Chess Server. It's a good basic program, but it could use a few minor improvements. It does not offer sliding pieces, which is a standard feature found on most other chess sites and programs. Also, it would be nice to have a rematch button handy when you finish a game. But overall, it's a fine program and many people (including me) are grateful to the author for writing it.
