I got an email from David King <drking@...
about details of the SGF details of Hex GM.
Does anyone know something about this?
If yes, please send David an email and CC a copy to me.
I'm contributing to a discussion about a standard file format for Hex
games. The smart go format has come up, and from there I've found the
smart game format FF4, which appears to have Hex listed as GM.
Can you point me to any further info about a standard for Hex - game
specific properties, applications using it, etc?
It's likely that if we adopted a standard based on sgf, most if not
all hex apps would implement only parts of it, igonoring properties
that they couldn't handle; basically there's only so much work people
would be prepared to put in - Hex is a minority interest game :). But
at least there would be a good foundation.
Thanks for any help you can give.
