Lantern is a Java Interface to ICC
Install Java, minimum version 6, if not installed to use Lantern. Java can be off in web browsers. Only versions 5.82 and later work on Java 9. Java is no longer installed by default on Mac.
Lantern Chess can be used for a free trial on chessclub.com. See validating a PayPal trial if you do not allready have an account. There is a temporary hold by ICC of $0.01 in order to validate. Lantern Software is free.
Prior to starting this interface, I made the Pulsar Chess Program which plays chess and variants such as Atomic, Crazyhouse, Losers, Three Checks, Chess960, and Giveaway. This is an iOS version as well.
Lantern is a GPL program. Unzip the same jar file you downloaded to get at Source Code and License. We are on github.com at lanternicc
