I sent this to ioffe, but thought I'd ask you guys feedback as well. I couldn't get his icon "stock" looking enough for me, so I took the default iPhone blue icon, and merged it with the Windows Vista "Chess Titans" icon, and came up with this. Thinking about changing it to a checkerboard background instead, maybe brown/off-white or something...

I believe that ioffe will be using another icon
unless he likes the above better (which would be completely fine with me).

Speaking of which...I can't believe he's had over 80k downloads, and only TWO people have donated anything. Funny thing is, both people are from Florida (me, and someone else, who that is, though, I don't know.) I mean, geez...would it be so hard to kick in at least a buck or something?

Imagine, APPL will start selling apps like Caissa via iTunes store. How much do you think it would cost?
5.99 or 9.99 or perhaps 19.99
why people would sponsor corporate predatory practices is beyond my understanding. I replied to every single email that was sent to me. I helped every one who knew how to shh and had 1.1.1+ firmware. Why pay, if you can just have it for free, mind you with decent support options.
Have you ever tried to resolve your (iTunes) issue with apple support for the products you actually paid real money? If you have, you know exactly what I am implying here.
I am simply enjoying working on wonderful platform with very interesting and talented people(aka. iPhone hackers community). I need money to for the hardware(iphones, laptops, servers, hosting/registry/backup charges, software licenses, etc...). My wife just wouldn't understand, if i'll buy another iphone($450) for 1.0.2 builds. We have 4 month old baby and only one income. I just can't. Sorry 1.0.2 crowd.
If every fifth would commit a dollar, I would have all the equipment needed and costs covered. Another important thing I would like to emphasize here. So far, Apple released only one feature update iTunesStore.app. If in 1.1.3 there would be new features, it us (iphone programmers) who drive apple to give you new features. People just refuse to upgrade their handhelds in order to have our apps. Apple can not afford to loose their own platform and they will move their butts quickly now.
GOOGLE give us million bucks, we'll port your OS on iphone
Too bad people like Steve Fosset die

Just so people don't get the impression that I'm trying to shove my icons down people's throats. ioffe had in fact asked me in a PM whether he could the icon, which I had originally posted in the Aqwoah thread. He did not relay his decision to not use it after that and that's why I posted what I did in the post above. So if the original icon remains or is changed to any other icon is completely fine with me.

I will suggest everyone in trouble to install bossprefs, if Caissa doesn't work for 'em
I do think that Armadillo does incredible art work.
Sir, Caissa dev team and would love to have your graphics of any kind. Boards, Pieces, splash, icon anything that is .png. We have customization support in 0.83. I'd gladly package into dedicated addon and release it via our official distribution chain. It is a lot of work, forgive me for my wishful thinking

Here's an idea, that as of yet I haven't seen any apps support, but IMHO would be a welcome idea: alternative Springboard icons, user-selectable from within the app. I personally like my icon for Caissa:
And Armadillo's icon is pretty cool too:
Maybe inside the app, under options/preferences, there would be an option to choose "alternative" Springboard icons, which would automatically rename the icon to "icon.png", then re-start Springboard (effectively putting the new icon in use.) Right now, I use SSH to accomplish this, but having it in the app as a native solution along with a few alternative icons would be a great step IMHO.
I do believe that some of the more advanced features you're developing (and yes, folks, ioffe has some ambitious plans for Caissa, like head-to-head internet play with dedicated Caissa servers) should be charged for. Maybe a one-time fee, or maybe a monthly fee. If you play chess a lot, and it only cost you, say, one dollar a month to play head-to-head against people from all over the world, wouldn't it be worth it?

Listen, you can create your addon, even if there would be only 1 icon.

LOL trying to create a repo of my own has been an ordeal, which I never have gotten right. I really need to get that figured out.

I have 1.1.2, Caissa runs but at the start of game, I mistakenly pulled the queen instead of the pawn and it placed the queen where the pawn suppose to be.
Also, I prefer if the chess pieces didn't look stretched.
I'm using gnu chess right now.

where did the chess pieces originate? I think what he means is that they look a bit to wide-stretched. Are these original images or were they resized from larger originals?

Just thought I would link to the chess boards and pieces I made for Caissa.
ioffe: Can you PM me with the specifics of how you place the pieces on the board? What are the dimensions of the pieces and the coordinates relative to the board. Also, for testing purposes, where do I put the boards and the pieces so Caissa will let me select them?
