Don't have the time for a team leader position on a project and if I'm honest with myself I know I don't have the experience for it either :P so I'll just take a normal position if it does happen preferably in the GUI department or maybe the AI.
cool, i have no idea how a project like this comes together, if you start at the center naruku, things will begin to form from an intangible mass, i would like to see that, its like a mini model of a real industrial project :D
I created the project on github http://github.com/naraku9333/ChessPlusPlus
This will be my first project on github, so I'm not to familiar with it yet. Either PM me or post here your github ID as I believe that is all I need to add contributors to the project. If you would rather fork the project and issue pull requests that is also fine.
We do need to make decision as to what API to use, I'm partial to SFML2 but am open to suggestions. I was also thinking of Qt for any GUI elements we may want (file menu, chat window, etc)
