In Chess, there is a problem when there is a pat game (= a player is NOT in chess, but can't move without going chessed, it's sort tie game) (don't know the english words ) : the games doesn't stop with the pat mention
for checkers i think it would be a good idea if you can set the ai level ((and so indirectly how long it keeps thinking)

As far as AI for chess, yes, that would be very nice. I think most chess engines are too big for the ClassPad though. It would have to be a simplified AI engine.

if you must have
you have :
i don't know when you have this invisible card bug (but there is no gaming problem so it's not really inconvenient)
a suggestion for solitaire :
have the red figures (hearts, diamonds) drawed in "unfilled symbols" so that we can easily differentiate black and red figures.
(good work lool ;-)

though a link would probably be better than a file.

In general, you can only host someone's copyrighted software on your website if you have the owner's permission. If the software has a license with it, the license might give you permission to distribute the software, along with some conditions. In contrast, you can almost ALWAYS provide a link to their software or to their main download page.
As far as any software I've written and put on ClassPad.org, I include a license that lets anyone host the download on their website if they want, as long as they also provide a link back to ClassPad.org. Since the download URLs should never change, I'd also suggest linking directly to the download on ClassPad.org instead of hosting the download directly. That way you don't have to keep updating your download everytime the software is updated.
In general, when it comes to ClassPad software, people are not making any money doing it. They want their software shared and are happy to have it on other websites.

I prefer to link to classpad for all the CP stuff. Great games, i will refresh my site's classpad section about the add-ins.
If anyone wants to have an add-in from classpad.org on their site it is fine. The only requirement is you list the website www.classpad.org along with the add-in download.
We've been careful not to change the links for each download, so you can have a direct link to the add-in download and it shouldn't change.

OK, I've linked all the add-ins in the File Sharing and created according categories.
Nice! A few things I noticed..
- CHIP8 is listed under Utilities. I think it fits better under Games.
- The Spreadsheet add-in states "The download link will bring you to a download page on classpad.org with screen shots and more details." I think you mean classpad.net. (An easy mistake to make )

its there, check again.
Freaky. I checked, and it wasn't there in my browser.
There must be some page caching problem with the file sharing pages. When I looked at the main ClassPad add-ins download page it listed 5 games and 5 utilities. When I looked at the games page, it only showed 5 (CHip8 missing).
I did a refresh on every one of these pages but it still didn't get the update. I have to clear my cache for it to finally pull in the new pages.
I'm not sure what the problem is. Having to clear my cache all the time is more than just an annoyance. Not only do I not want to have to do this because I loose my cache, but I never really know when something new has been added so I'll never know when I need to clear my cache.
Have you seen this problem before on casiocalc.org? Could it have something to do with the ActiveX code in these pages?

This happened because I didn't use the File Sharing interface to make the changes but the hidden admin panel (I didn't want the changes to appear in the "edited files" part of the news).
So the File Sharing page "modified date" (sent to browser) wasn't updated and your browser thought the page was still valid.
When you press F5, you ask your browser and proxies to check if their cache is valid.
With CTRL+F5 you ask to your browser and proxies to re-download everything from the original server even if their cache appear to be valid.
I've enabled private (proxies cannot cache) page caching on every page of the site except inside the forum.

I didn't know about gthe CTRL-F5 trick. This is good to know.

in the solitaire that was mentioned by OVERLORD, that is neccesary.
In the other hand they are very helpfull in that moments that I don't have anything to do for example in the bus going to school.

Yeah its very difficult distinguish between red & black figures on solitaire, and more with the screen protector :S, anyway i like it .
Greg Williams has updated these games with bug fixes and improvements. Red is easier to see because it is now an outline with white in the middle. Also the crashing bug for 2-player games connected over the link cable is fixed. You can download the fixed versions on www.classpad.org

BTW, if you downloaded these games a while back youi might want to get the latest version. The graphics for the cards have inproved and the randomizer for Solitaire has also improved.
A few more cool add-in games have also been added within the last month or so.
