v2.1.3 (18 Jan 2013)

  • CraftBukkit 1.4.7 compatibility (will also work on 1.4.6 & older)
  • Fix for UTF-8 encoding problems sometimes seen on Windows, especially with Russian and Chinese locale settings. Enforce UTF-8 loading of messages files (in plugins/ChessCraft/lang) at all times. Russian/Chinese messages still won't display properly on a Windows console, but that's frankly a Windows problem. Messages do now display correctly in-game in all locales and on all tested platforms (Linux/Windows).
  • Very large styles (e.g. "huge" or "yazpanda") may suffer from slow chunk updates with the vanilla Minecraft client, leading to poor board redraw performance. It is recommended to use the Optifine mod (or the Spoutcraft client, which includes Optifine), and experiment in particular with the "Chunk Updates per Frame" and "Dynamic Updates" video settings.
  • xboard protocol support should be considered experimental at this time - while the AI.yml file contains some definitions for xboard-base AI's, they are marked as disabled by default, so they won't be auto-picked as opponents. They can be explicitly invited, however, with e.g. /chess invite gnuchess1. xboard support has been tested successfully with the gnuchess and crafty engines.
  • MySQL database access is currently not multi-threaded, so be aware that a slow or unresponsive MySQL server may induce server lag. This will also be addressed in a near-future release.
