I wish to play chess with
chess.el on a FICS server using M-x chess-ics but using that logs me as a guest player. How can I login with my registered user/password?
I've come with a way to login. At the beginning of
chess-ics.el comes a list of servers, I can edit it and add my username (or handle) in front of
5000 as a new arg for connection. Then
M-x chess-isc will ask me my password and that's it. (I have to use set seek 1 when already logged in to get the extra seek buffer, and set availinfo 0 to stop the annoying noise on the
Anyway, now my issue is this, I don't like editing the
chess-ics.el file to tell that I want to log in as my username. How can I tell
M-x chess-ics that I want to use my username for connection? I've tried
C-u M-x chess-ics but it seems the
chess-ics.el script doesn't support that.
I am guessing I need to make some custom command or something (sorry for the newbie language here) so that I can call not the default (
chess-ics) but the
(chess-ics my-username) which in turns calls what I want. Am I right? So I need to defun something and overwrite the default
M-x chess-ics to call my new function. Is that it? What would be the correct syntax to do this. I'm really pretty new on hacking emacs lisp :(
