    Good program with simple, but nice interface and functions. Playing with my family members now over the Internet. Positive: - GPL license - suits my needs - offers me possibility to learn programming chess game myself by analyzing code and documented mysql tables - no major bugs found so far. Cons: - project updates long ago (are improvements made?) - although version does what it needs to do, some less relevant parts not working correctly for example change of language. Due to minor shortcomings no 5 stars are given, but I'm really happy with this game.

    Been following webchess since beholder board. There have been better versions in the past. I have a version 2. Works great and installs great. This webchess1rc2.version is a step back or 2. I could not get the admin portion to work. I am staying with my version 2. After more than three years later. I was expecting alot more. Instead there is less. Sorry guys. My first thumbs down. Update: Changing my thumbs down to thumbs up. 3 days later went back to try again. Admin works now. Must have been a cache thing.
