Chessclock 1.0
Posted on: 12/18/2006 11:33 AM

Chessclock lets a computer (ideally a laptop) replace a traditional chess clock sitting next to a chess board.

(There is nothing chess-specific about it. It can be used to time-limit any two-player game.)

FEATURES
--------

- Fullscreen view showing two big digital clocks
- Set different timelimits for each player
- Optionally add time to a player's clock after their turn
- Turn counting

HOW TO GET IT
-------------

Simply checkout CVS module 'chessclock' and run. No compilation is necessary.

DEPENDENCIES
------------

Requires Ruby and Ruby bindings for GTK+ and Glade.

Ubuntu users can get everything they need with: apt-get install ruby libgtk2-ruby libglade2-ruby
