I would like to create piece sets for use with Hiarcs Chess Explorer.

Can you please explain the process in detail used to create your *.png piece set images. I would like to create some kind of template for the creation of different pieces.

Also, are the png's just svg's with .png extentions?

Thank you.

You will need to create a 1800x600 png image which contains all white black pieces. White is on top. Each piece colour/type is 300x300 pixels 32 bit colour depth.

Area around pieces should be transparent.

An example can be found the HIARCS Chess Explorer/data/themes folder.

Provided such a png is in that folder HCE will present it in the preferences.
