This document describes the process of porting version one of Microchess originally developed on and for the KIM-1 6502 development system to the PICAXE 28X2 and 20X2 microcontrollers. The resulting program is logically equivalent to the original software with some user-friendly enhancements enabled through some of the features of the PICAXE devices. The techniques involved could be applied to other software and computing platforms.
