This project is not part of the GNU Project.

This is a user space driver to connect Novag chess computers (tested on Novag Citrine, it could work on others) to desktop PC programs. It includes patches for ChessDB and EBoard.

On ChessDB, the driver let's you enter your moves to ChessDB in real time, or transfer the whole game when you finish. You may take back, introduce variations, etc.

On EBoard, it allows you to play games on FICS (Free Internet Chess Server), using the chess computer. You may also play against chess engines like gnuchess or crafty.
