Toledo Atomchess with CGA graphics

In March 4, 2021 was published The Kilobyte's Gambit, an homage to the TV series "The Queen's Gambit". Developed by @mattround with the amazing graphics designed by Pinot W. Ichwandardi, it also integrated my Toledo Javascript Chess engine; and it became viral!

In case you didn't notice it (or more probably you are young enough to not remember CGA graphics!!!), all the graphics are done in 320x200 pixels using only four colors. Exactly the colors available in an old CGA video card sold in 1983. But some CGA cards could be connected to a NTSC TV and show 16 colors by interleaving different combinations of the four colors.
I was left wondering how it would look as a real PC game on CGA composite mode. So with permission from Pinot, I started converting the graphics to real data bytes for the 8088 processor.
I developed an user interface pretty similar to the Matt's game, but using the arrow keys for moving the cursor. And the chess engine was supplied by my very own Toledo Atomchess x86.
The resulting chess program is pretty interesting, it runs under DOS, and even under Windows XP running over VirtualBox on a Macbook Pro! Enjoy it!
