WDSchess V1.0 readme file Compiled by Peter Brown 31/03/2020 from the chess sample source code included with the WDSibyl development package Install_20100117.zip from https://www.wdsibyl.org/ I have added some code to:- 1] Create, write, read an ini file that stores the position on screen at exit and the current selected Difficulty level 2] Positions the game centre screen on startup if the stored screen position is partially off screen I have changed the name from os2chess to WDSchess partly to avoid confusion if an os2chess package already exists and also to differentiate from the original source code.
