Xiangqi / News: Recent posts

First release, 0.5

The first release is now out! :)

You can play it, you have to check for checkmate yourself (no pun intended) King facing king isn't done yet, but will be. I've set things in place.

I'm flirting with the idea of an interesting GUI system that I might make. I might also use the borqueror one, but I want to make one myself.

In short, a lot of cleanup, a lot of work, and just generally a usable game :)
