Hi people, I've written a chess program (almost), but dont have any graphical simulation of the board, the program just gives the move. I want to look start work on graphics, but dont know how, I've not come acrpss them yet. Any ideas/links of where to go to do this???

Of course there are a lot of ways of going about this. Here's one way to do the gui part that uses a font. You can download the font from http://www.dafont.com/en/search.php?nq=1&q=chess+alpha You can also use the font to make up your own set of images, either at runtime or to save as local files.

Thanks very very very much. It's not quite I want I want, but it's a great start, and hopefully I can figure out how to get pictures of pieces, and then get them to move according to the String that represents the move. I like the way the cursor works as well, Great Stuff!!!
