Download Conqueror1.01 to play graphical
khan games against the computer.
Download and run the conqueror setup file. The program
requires java jre version 1.6 or higher. Download java here
if you are not sure whether it is installed.
Unzip the download folder anywhere on your hard drive and run from there
by double-clicking on 'Conqueror.app'. Optionally, you
can move the folder to /Applications. If you have a java-enabled browser,
the program will run on its own, otherwise you must download the latest
version of java here
before running. If you can't get the program to run, double-click on the
file conqueror1_0.jar. If this doesn't run, then it's pretty
sure you don't have java installed, or you have put some spaces in a subfolder
name. For example, if you put the program in a subfolder, use the '_' character,
not space, ex: Desktop/my_download/conqueror/...
This program is free software and shipped with no warranties.

the past 20 years has made this project possible.
Many thanks to the myriad chess programmers whose open source code and
ideas presented has facilited engine design, in particular, praise
