ChessFriend-Fire is a graphical user interface chessboard for chess engines. It is developed and maintained as free software by the members of Schachfreunde Brand 1981 e.V., a small chess club in Aachen, Germany.
Overview[edit | edit source]
ChessFriend-Fire has originally been developed as a training tool for the members of the chess club Schachfreunde-Brand. The need to develop a separate chess software arose because the members were somewhat dissatisfied with competing chess programs which either were not freely available, clumsy to use or would only run for specific operating systems. With ChessFriend-Fire, pgn-files containing comments and annotations about last tournament games could be shared and viewed among each other by a agreeing to a common software standard.
ChessFriend-Fire supports the Universal Chess Interface (UCI) protocol and is bundled together with Stockfish, one of the strongest chess engines available. ChessFriend-Fire allows the user to set custom tags for each game, which makes it easy to find them again even in a fairly large database. Another feature which distinguishes ChessFriend-Fire from similar software is its ability to export games into the LaTeX format, which simplifies the creation of publication-ready game fragments for e.g. the club newspaper considerably.
