Play Chess from Terminal.app
Authored by: AlienBenefactor on Apr 12, '06 09:38:44AM
First install xboard, gnuchess and crafty using fink. Don't use darwinports because the interaction between gnuchess and xboard have been broken for some time. Then in X11 mouse over to Applications - Customize Menu. Click the ADD button and enter this string in the second field:
 xboard -size medium -fcp gnuchess -scp /Applications/Chess.app/Contents/Resources/sjeng 
Note: -size just determines the size of the chess window and can be ommitted. Let the games begin!
