Hey guys,

I decided that this year I'd do something for you guys instead of nothing. Without further interruption, let me show you: Chessyourself.

If some of you may recall, Idiot got bored and made some fancy chess pieces that dubbed into the era of 'chessyourself avatars'. What I plan to do is simple: make chess, but use these graphics he made. However, the only thing is that I need 12 more chess pieces, and these are the rules to obtain one:

Rules of Chessyourself Verification wrote:1) You must be in good standing with the community. If you're seen as a spammer, you're not getting in.
2) First of all, you have to post in this thread to show you're interested.


All of these rules should be a good guideline as to whether you think you are allowed in, and I hope it is seen as fair and balanced.

Another thing: The game will be finished (I hope) by New Year's (Eve?) as a playable game/demo. I say this because it won't take long to make, only that certain features like showing where you can move will take a while. This game/demo will not feature AI and will need a second person with you, although I could try to make some AI once everything important is done.

Here are the current pieces:

I wanna be the king, and if you decline I'll make your game crash like you've never seen before!
I'm just kidding, I'm not gonna do blackmailing, I'm already in, heheh.

Looking good so far. But I have a question: How will you know which peace is what?

In terms of what side, I'll make 2 layers per graphic. You'll know what side the piece is on depending on a diamond-shaped hole in the middle of its base. It'll be filled in with a lighter black with a white outline for the black team and also the opposite for white.

You should allow custom pieces before everyone starts raging after you for "why I'm not a fucking king".

To allow custom pieces would be a little more work involved, Wary. I also could make it so that it's randomly chosen instead as to who is what each game.

I updated the OP so that you only need the two requirements and don't need to say what you want to be. I don't know why I thought that was good at the time to say what piece you want to be. It was early in the morning for me and I was in a rush.

I never thought this game would see the light of day.
At least I know it'll become something now, because it's in good hands.

If you'd do this, how do you plan on indicating which character is what piece each game?

When a random ID is chosen, make sure it's not chosen again, while also giving it a random string value ("pawn", "bishop", "rook", etc). This would be the easiest way to do that. Of course, I'd also have to make sure that the value does not exceed the amount of black/white pieces for that rank. This is one reason why I wanted to do fixed player pieces earlier, even though Wary has the point of people arguing about not being a King piece.

Just to get it out here I have been asked to sprite additional trophies/pieces for anyone else wanting to be in the game and have agreed to since I did make them originally.

So just to make it easier, if you don't have a piece and want to be in it please post some sort of reference to what you want to look like.
If you already have a piece and want it remade, do the same thing.

(This message has not been run by Turtle and he may do things differenty but I'll still be spriting it regardless and the reference would still be appreciated)

Yeah, I was also gonna mention you're doing the art, but didn't.. my bad (also I agree with what Idiot said). I should have. Don't kill me! Also, I'm currently streaming at www.hitbox.tv/TurtleP right now if you want to watch development.

Progress:



I tested each piece's class with the exception of the queen (which is just a rook + bishop together in one) and they all work. Now I have to get the rules done (check, checkmate, castling).

Also hovering over a piece briefly causes it to show the type of piece it is so you know what you're doing.

Found this in an old folder
If there's a knight spot open I would love that
Obviously the sprite needs some work but I hope that's a decent reference...

This game looks really cool. Looking forward to seeing how it ends up, and thanks for being awesome!

Update OP with new screenshots n stuff.

Also now instead of the hover-text you can hold left control to display what each piece is. Each piece is randomly generated for every game, and also I made everything looks like traditional chess.

PrincessKiller, it looks nice, but too small. I haven't gotten an update from idiot with more chess pieces yet so I don't know who he has made. Also due to plans for today and tomorrow I might not be able to release the demo (also because the bishop won't capture pieces for some reason).

Fantastic. I'm being sarcastic. Show it off somewhere else if it has nothing to do with the game.

Be dumb less.
It's Turtle95 logos. They could be used for the game. Maybe it could have been better to PM them but it's him trying to help out.

I'd like to have my avatar in this if it wouldn't be too much bother. I'm having some issues working out scaling at the moment. It's quite a wide symbol. Also I guess I just want to make sure symbols would be allowed?

Why wouldn't your symbol be allowed? I made TripleXero's symbol as one back when I first made them so I don't see what the problem with yours would be.
Plus it's mainly been your avatar anyway so there's nothing else to go by.

Also here's a picture of all the new ones I've made thus far. Some are in Turtle's OP some are not.

I'm going to go ahead and make my own chess piece to replace the current one, since my character looks pretty different from how it looks there. I would also make one for my pony OC, but I have already done it before, but I can't find it anywhere.

I finished making mine, by the way.

Bigger version, because why not?

If there can only be one per person, then you could replace my current one for the one I made.

As of Idiot's latest sprites I have 1 spot left (for the traditional max of 32 pieces), so I guess that goes to Teciminer.

Well, I guess it depends on how much you want Camewel in it. Personally I would rather have Luna, but it's your decision.

Yeah, I'm gonna replace Luna's current one with the new one, and I don't know how Camewel actually feels about being in it, but I won't discard that piece unless he says he would rather not be in.

Only reasons I made it the way I did was due to your yoshi having a coat on as well as small pixels. Turtle can pick whichever edit he wants to use but I'll stand strong behind the original.
