Thanks for your reply.

My chess game starter kit essentially gets you 90% there.  Out of the box (or download in this case) the kit allows you to make only valid moves on th board.  Changing that so that some of the moves are stored on disk should e a piece of cake.

As to the compiler, Microsoft has a free C# compiler:

http://www.microsoft.com/express/

You can use that to compile and edit my Chess Game starter kit.

I hope this helps.

I noticed that you had a Chess Game starter kit on your website.  Since I do not know how to program in C# (I last programmed in Fortran 77) nor do I have a compiler I probably cannot pursue this idea on my own even with such a great head start as that kit offers.  So instead I am taking the lazy way out and asking you the same question I ask all those I run into who can program.

I think the availability of a chess opening practice program would be of incredible interest to many players - even to the point of being profitable.

What I am referring to would be a chess engine which needs do NO evaluation since it would merely accept legal moves and respond with pre-stored book moves.  If the human player did not play a move in the book of the computer they would be told so and asked to try again (and the computer could put the piece back for them).  As the give and take moved through the book the names of the opening lines could be presented because I think they could be easily linked to a key move in the database of stored moves for the opening.  If the human made it all the way to the end of the stored line I would expect the computer to announce this and congratulate them.

Of course it would be nice for the human to be able to edit and add to the opening book, but that could be version 2.

This to me seems to be just a case of adding a database to the starter kit - but then I am an idiot - because I have asked several noted programmers for such an application and have been told it is not so simple.  Maybe you could explain this to me or better yet create such a program for us all.  I would be glad to help in anyway I could - providing the opening database or whatever.

Thanks in advance for your comments or any help you can offer.
