"It's no accident that capitalism has brought with it progress, not merely in production but also in knowledge. Egoism and competition are, alas, stronger forces than public spirit and sense of duty."
- Albert Einstein

This is a cool screensaver that does an autoplaying game of chess. There's a built-in AI that makes all games look different, though it's not particularly advanced, so even a newbie would beat this AI.

From a technology point of view this demo illustrates a few interesting concepts, such as shadow mapping, projected shadows, perpixel lighting and a shader generated wood material.

It should run on Radeon 9500 and up and GeForce FX.

Fixed a minor issue with the GFFX. It should work fine with GFFX now.
