Description [fr]

Une interface pour plusieurs variantes de Shogi, par Steve Evans, portage Linux par H.G. Muller.
En C (d'après la version initiale en Visual Basic).

ShogiVar (pour Shogi Variants) est une interface libre et multi-plateforme pour plusieurs variantes de Shogi (jeu d’échecs japonais). Tous les jeux peuvent être joués à deux et la plupart (excepté Tenjiku) contre la machine (IA). Elle supporte les jeux Micro-Shogi, Mini-Shogi, Judkin's Shog, Whale Shogi, Tori (Bird) Shogi, Yari Shogi, Heian (Early) Shogi, Modern Shogi, Sho (Small) Shogi, Wa Shogi (2 variantes), Chu (Middle) Shogi, Heian Dai (Early Large) Shogi, Dai (Large) Shogi, Tenjiku (Exotic) Shogi, Dai-Dai (Huge) Shogi, Maka-Dai-Dai (Ultra Huge) Shogi, Tai (Grand) Shogi.


Un programme pour jouer aux variantes du shogi

Shogivar est un programme permettant de jouer aux variantes du shogi. Il a été écrit par Steve Evans en 1998 en Visual Basic 3.0. Malheureusement, les exécutables produits par ce compilateur ne peuvent plus fonctionner sur les systèmes d'exploitation 64 bits modernes.

Steve Evans a publié le code source Basic en 2011 et l'a récemment déclaré open source sous licence GNU Public License. Cela a permis à d'autres personnes de tenter de restaurer ce programme classique dans toute sa splendeur!

Cette page présente une tentative en cours de portage de ShogiVar vers Linux en traduisant le code source Basic en C et en le liant au système frontal GTK de XBoard. Ci-dessous, vous pouvez voir quelques captures d'écran de ce projet. Le code source, ainsi que celui de la version originale, peuvent être trouvés dans le dépôt git de H.G. Muller.

Description [en]

A program for playing Shogi variants

Shogivar is a program to play Shogi variants. It was written by Steve Evans in 1998, in Visual Basic 3.0. Unfortunately, the executables produced by this compiler can no longer run on modern 64-bit operating systems.

Steve Evans released the Basic source code in 2011, and has recently declared it to be open source subject to the GNU Public License. This has made it possible for other people to make an attempt to restore this classic program to its full glory!

This page presents an ongoing attempt to port ShogiVar to Linux, by translating the Basic source code to C, and linking it to XBoard's GTK-based front-end. Below you can see some screenshots of this project. The source code, together with that of the original version, can be found in H.G. Muller's on-line git repository.
