HL2 Chess - GCC Entry


HL2 Chess is, as the name suggests, a Chess gamemode with a HL2 theme. The two teams you can play as are “Heroes” and “Villains” which are both made up of HL2 characters. For those of you not familiar with Chess, I suggest you read through this wikipedia page.


(These videos are a bit outdated, I will replace them tommorow)


To-do List:

  • Add castling and en passant.
  • Add support for more than two players in a single server.
  • Add a check notification/block.

I played with him many times, it kicks ass. I hope he wins honestly

Looks good Chris !

Hope you win ChrisHansome.

Castling is truly needed and I never got to use en passant move ever so I don’t know about that one.
Maybe a bit slow but otherwise awesome job!

Wow, this is really well done. I looked through the code and I’m impressed.
You should adapt this to make a Stratego gamemode, shouldn’t take much work cause the base is pretty much the same.

Played this with UberMensch. It was a lot of fun.

I tried this out, was really fun but you should probably add some block so you have to move your king if he is checked, my opponent didn’t notice that, so I was able to kill the king, but that’s not really how you win real chess (according to the rules I always play with in real life). Other than that: it was great.

I was going to add a check notice but it slipped my mind. I’ll make sure to include it in the next release.
