Board DGT Draughts e-Board

Post by Krzysztof Grzelak » Sun Mar 26, 2017 14:06

I have such a question because it is difficult to find the answer to my question. I would like to buy an electronic board on the site http://www.raindroptime.com/dgt-draughts-e-board.html I want to conduct various tournaments over the internet using this board but in the following manner. I have a DGT board with clock, right and left laptops stand. They play two programs between themselves on separate laptops, such as Kingsrow and Scan. After the movement made program Kingsrow (white), I make a move on board DGT I'm moving on a second laptop in the program Scan (black). When Scan responds to traffic on the second laptop, I make a move on the board DGT and execute move on the program Kingsrow. And so the whole game. My question is whether you can broadcast the game online as I described above using a board DGT Draughts e-Board.

Krzysztof.

Hi Krzysztof,

In response to your e-mail:

If you buy an e-board it comes with the software needed to broadcast games on the internet.
You will need a website to show the games, see http://livedraughts.kndb.nl/index.php.

(The software I wrote, DSBS, has a different purpose: it lets you play on the e-board against any draughts program supporting Dam Exchange Protocol, DXP. As-is it cannot broadcast games on the internet.)

An alternative for you would be to broadcast the games via http://toernooibase.kndb.nl/ link > Live Games.
Then you don't need an e-board, you can use a tablet instead.
