I’ve been thinking about a solution to a lot of problems no one is having
I’ve seen interest in fuzzy stone placement, apparently we have looked into adding this but it was not as straight forward as would seem
I’ve seen interest in eliminating opponent rank display, last move display, ECT ECT…
Personally I’d prefer to play on a perspective board as one sees it sitting on the table.
All of these problems have finished solutions, if we could only talk to them?
How about an OGS GTP bridge application? It would be used as a stand alone application to handle browsing and finding games that would then launch whatever GTP client while handle communication between OGS API and the gtp commands playing the game out on the client.
This would make it possible to play games on OGS with sabaki, glgo, or any other client you may have grown fondness for.
While there is not much work being done on it now, this would also be extensible later for projects such as the physical goban interface for OGS some have pondered building.
Any interest? Opinions?
This was done at one point for KGS, though not sure how often it was used. http://www.weddslist.com/kgs/how/kgsGtp.html
I just like flexible open interfaces shrug
