Description:

Fritz and chessbase look alike theme for the "knights" chess game. Complete chess set with game pieces and wooden board as shown in the profile pic.

Work in progress. Looking to add some final touches to this app in the future. I am looking at further polishing and redoing each piece, like adding some shading and resizing them smaller on the board. Might make the outline and the color on each piece lighter on the white pieces.

Theme working in the knights chess options to apply this theme.

Update: To apply this theme you first must download the knights chess application. To do so enter this command in the Konsole or terminal bash.

sudo apt-get install knights

Version 0.02 Alpha. White pieces sharpened through node tweaks in Inkscape. Further sharpening and adjustments will be made with the white pieces for them to render as sharp as possible on high definition screens like mine and others. Black Pieces rendered to board.

Looking to apply the boarder and some other board highlights with piece movement as soon as I can figure out how. Would like to port sounds for the chess pieces also on movement but I am not sure if this app will support sound. I will find out if it does in the future.

Thanks Noughmad. :) I will take another look and keep developing this theme. Peace.

The theme works and looks nice. However, the pieces are stretched to fill the whole square, so the board looks too full.

To prevent this, add an invisible square to each piece element in the SVG, group it together with the piece, and set the group's id to BlackKing etc. This way, the invisible square will fill the chessboard square, and pieces will be the correct size and aspect ratio. You can also adjust their positions this way.
