    This forum is for pre-sales questions only.

    It's safe to assume that creating a chess add-on for XF would be possible, especially if similar add-ons have been implemented in other forum platforms in the past.

    Licensed customers can post here if they wish to fund development of an add-on from a third party developer:

    are you talking about a viewer or play by post?

    Would be interesting to see a playable chess game built for XenForo, but until then I took what you posted in the OP and made this for you:
    It's not playable but it does what the links you posted do..

    It is certainly possible as I had chess integrated into XF a while ago along with playback bbcodes for past games. Again, lack of interest made me unmotivated to continue with this among other things but assuming you have a license and a budget you could get this made.

    Yeah I was thinking the same way of creating it.. but honestly I would rather just add in an actual playable form of some sort so you can actually play someone in real time.. although a Play by Post using BBCodes would also be interesting..

    Exactly, the game was in real time, but you could copy/paste the game ID into a post and end up with the options to view the game move by move by clicking forward or back, or click play and watch the game unfold at a speed of your choosing.

    BBcode was literally just for viewing the previously played games, chess itself was at a static page and though I wanted to be able to open a running game at any time from an overlay, I stopped before I got that far.
