I'm starting this thread so that users can share their images that they have created for pspChess.

I am attaching the original chess set and a set from Ziics pieces for examples.

32x32.

Use the images in the first post as your template. They show you where each piece goes and with what background.

Cool beans. I'll make some a Star Wars set some time next week :)

In fact I'll do an original trilogy set and a prequekl trilogy set

maybe someone could make a chrono trigger set, i think it would be pretty easy for anyone who knows what they are doin (but i dont...). Its kind of a request, so maybe someone is willing to do it. I bet a lot of people would appreciate it though, since there is such a large ct fan group. Just a thought... :) :

anychance of a DCEMU UK compilation PSP Chess special release :)

maybe a lord of the rings set could be done too

The problem with some of these sets is that it's hard to tell what peice is supposed to be what, it's the same problem with most real custom chess sets.

When I get a chance to do some later this week I'm going to try and make it easier to tell what peices they are supposed to be.

I would have no idea what is going on in a real game of chess with these peices.

I whipped this one out real quick, a sorta final fantasy battle set. Also a few attempts at an advance wars chess set. Ones set on a classic black and white board, the other on a grassy plain. Keeping the nice 16bit look while at the same time making the sprites smaller was hard as hell. Might make a few of other opposing armys later.

I've just recently changed isp's so I've lost my current web space for the time being. (stupid isp cancelled and deleted everything I had within 2 hours of me calling them. Bastards didn't even give me time to back anything up either). :mad:

I will try to set up my new webspace within the next few days and upload my chess skins again.

I'll make some pieces and then upload here ^^

I made some piece sets:

template 1, to make your own pieces
template 2
Saint Seiya characters from the black knights saga (credits to Usako for the sprites)(had no knight to put as peon so I put Jabu :P)
Sonic Battle (E-100s custom colors by me)(had to choose between the characters so I left out Cream and E-105[I prefered to use the gray ones as peons])


more to come ;)

PS: I can't use the images in the game... i've put one with the name of pieces and other with the name of pieces2, but when i go to the display options and change the image nothing seems to happen...

You also need to turn on the option "External Pieces", if you have not. I belive the order is important unless you save your options. Turn on External Pieces, then Select the Image file. I would also suggest that you just save your options after getting it set up, then the next time you load it will load your custom pieces.

Shiaoran

u need to know something about spriting...
and that's something u don't learn in one day

try searching in google for spriting tutorials and figure how is the best way to make the pieces

personally, I rip the sprites out of roms, edit some and put it inside a 33x33px square, so i know the size it need to be to fit in the pieces sheet ;)

August 26th, 2005, 16:40
is there a downloadable software for spriting? if so and you know one, hyperlink it plz

Shiaoran
August 26th, 2005, 23:00
no, u must use you mind, hand and mouse(ou touchscreen if u have one)

i peronally use paint, yes, PAINT to make my sprites

This project/homebrew/emulator what ever it is, has been unstickied. It has been unstickied because it is either an old release or has not seen an update in ages and is simply taking up space being stickied on the first page.

If the creator has a new update please post the new update in our submit news section or if you have already been granted the power post it directly in the PSP news section. Hell you can even post it in here and we'll re-sticky it because it will be considered an on-going/updated project.

Thanks

Nice work people. I'd like to use some these pieces an eventually make some myself, however I can't seem to get them to load. I select "external pieces on", then try select a piece file when all I ever get is "-> ../" and I can't navigate to any other folder. At first I tried to place the piece files in the same folder as the pieces.png itself, when that didn't work I tried other folders but the problem persisted. I'm using version 0.31.

Did I miss some installation detail or what could be the problem?

I know I havent updated the program in a while, but I'm sure people are still enjoying it. If you enjoy pspChess, please add yourself to the pspChess user map I've created on frappr.com.

http://www.frappr.com/pspchessusermap/map

I would like to see how many people are still using it, and where they are from.

It would be a nice way to show your appreciation for pspChess.

Thanks.

Just unkill yourself and install it on your 2.6 PSP, assuming you have the eLoader and GTA:LCS.

I've been using PSP Chess for a while now and it works fine on my 2.6 PSP.

Hello all!

This is my first post and i am kind of new to all this stuff. I have bought myself a PSP two months ago and since that i am in love with it. It`s a shame there is no Chessmaster game for our PSPs. But hey,.. this PSPCHESS app is very cool!!

There is only one request i have.. Can anyone please direct me to guide how to make a chess set of my own. I dont like to one installed or neither of those on 6 pages. I like to play on classical chess set, like the one attached. Is there already made one? If so please direct me there. If not i would please someone to be so nice and give me some hints on how to create my own "Pieces" and once done; where to put them..

These are the Pieces i would like to use..

Why keep upgrading they will hack 2.71 eventually and then you can downgrade. Unless the next firmware has PSone Emulation I'd say stay as old as possible on your firmware. No games require anything above 2.71 yet so don't upgrade.

Actually, the latest eLoader (0.99) works with 2.70/2.71. Only 2.80 folks are out of luck for the moment.

I'd love to see a new version of the old Amiga classic 'Battle Chess'. This version spiced up the game a bit with animations of each peice moving and included gory animations as you took another peice.
http://www.retrogaming.it/amiga/battlechess3.png

A star wars theme for battle chess would be really cool (like the game they play in the first star wars film on the millenium falcon). :D

Being more of a 'traditional' chess player I decided I wanted some 2d sets that looked more standard than fantasy. The ones that come with the game although detailed are 3d representations which don't quite look right on a 2d board.

Those who play Chessmaster and Fritz will know what I mean between the 3d and 2d views.

Enjoy...

A little (2 years) late, but I've just started using pspchess. I had the same problem (on M33 3.52 F/W). All I had to do was move the MUSIC folder from mem stick root to under the PSP folder. Possible that the default directory cannot be changed in v0.31?

PS and no, you dont lose the audio playback option in XMB :-P
