A Windows GUI for shogi (Japanese chess). Comes with gpsfish, a shogi engine. Can be used for analysing game records, playing against an AI, suggesting better moves, similar to many chess programs. Has Japanese and English language settings.
Installing, running, playing games, analysis, loading kifu (game record), consider mode, hint, mate finding, changing board, pieces, piece stand, and background image, most options
What does not
Changing fonts and engine options, paste notation feature
Rather than setting the fonts and engine options from the GUI, I manually edited the settings file with a text editor. The settings file is located at C:\ProgramData\ShogiXyz\ShogiGUI\settings.xml. Be sure to close the application before editing, otherwise it'll overwrite the file on close.
Paste notation can be substituted by regular file loading.
What was not tested
A 64-bit bottle is recommended for shogi engines to work. The bundled engine, gpsfish, doesn't work on 32-bit. ShogiGUI itself still works however.
