"Extremism is so easy. You've got your position, and that's it. It doesn't take much thought. And when you go far enough to the right, you meet the same idiots coming around from the left."
- Clint Eastwood

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.
