Chess AI also in Blueprints?

Yes the entire project is built in Blueprints!

Thats awesome

I made chess recently but played with Unreal.js. What decision algorithm did that person use?

  • I also thought about Paragon assets as Chess pieces but due to SingleThreaded nature of NodeJS I had to stick to static meshes :stuck_out_tongue:

I will do the shameless plug and put it here:

Min - Max algorithm with alpha - beta pruning

I am doing a BP chess logic based puzzle (slow progress) so I will be keen to check it out. And FerlinDev’s one as well, cheers.

I am curious to see what you do with camera angle/s, and how you approach square selection and piece movement.

Awesome can’t wait for the livestream! :slight_smile:

Hahaha what of the chances!! This spring jam I did chess too. What I learned is to not ever try again making a chess game in three days!! DIVINE BATTLE CHESS ARENA by xkonstantinos for 2019 Spring #ue4jam: Marketplace Takeover - itch.io

Paragon assets would be perfect for Autochess, Autochess has a pretty big market. Autochess would also work extremely well in VR, I already had a small glimpse with it, but Valve completely made their VR implementation unusable so deadend there.

What I’m trying to say is, make an autochess game for VR using paragon assets and eventually bring it to the Oculus Quest.
There’s a market, the assets and animations exist.

Is it LAN/internet implementation present?

Awesome, can’t wait. I wish there was a fan project to resurrect Paragon. I’d host a 24/7 server on my at-home server.

is it for sale? I would like to buy it on steam.

@TinkerTyler There a few projects of that nature, Predecessor & Core to name a few. I can’t wait for this live stream.

Stinks Ill be at work during the livestream. Thanks for doing this one.

I’ve been working on a project that’s way too much for BP but I’m doin it anyway :smiley: Lookin forward to this!

Amazing skills shown here!

Is there a link to the source?
