Malex has offered to post an update for my addon wowChess so that it works with 3.0. I've made him a maintainer on curse, and will post it here once he posts it there.

To make this work in 3.0 (and not screw up your chat) you just need to comment out lines 114 and 115 in wowChess.lua.
Code:
--Called when its loaded
function wowChess_OnLoad()
	-- Hook ChatFrame_OnEvent so we can examine messages
	--WoW_ChatFrame_OnEvent = ChatFrame_OnEvent;
	--ChatFrame_OnEvent = wowChess_ChatFrame_OnEvent;
	wowChess_MoveLogSetFont();
Loading a game doesn't seem to work though.

resigning

I've also found that the resign command results in the opposite of the intended affect. When a player's resignation is accepted, it gives the win to the player who gave up.

Bug report:
My hubby was playing with his friend and the friend resigned his game, but my hubby was given a loss for it.

Let me know if you need more info - I'll wring it out of them.
