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.)
- 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.
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
