I usually demonstrate MorphOS at the annual AmiWest Show in Sacramento, California, each October, and from what I have seen recently, the show is still planned to go forward this year, even though there is the risk of COVID-19. Reading your thread here gave me the idea to challenge someone who owns an A-Eon X5000 running AmigaOS4, to a friendly chess game, if someone here can provide a working port of Stockfish for MorphOS, for me to run on either my 2.7GHz G5 PowerMac, or hopefully the Quad G5 PowerMac I will be picking up around the middle of this month, from fellow member here, Doffo. I'm trading to him one or two of my Classic Amiga big box systems, but we have not worked out all of the trade details yet.
So, if you or someone else that has good porting skills can complete the port of Stockfish to MorphOS in time for this year's AmiWest Show, I will issue a friendly challenge to one of the show attendee's, perhaps Alex Perez, or Bill Bosari. It could be a fun event to watch during the show.
