The header file conio.h is a non-standard header file.
However, it is not needed anyway. Just comment it out.

Just remove #include <conio.h> ?

Yes. Remove it. It isn't needed.

Change:
void main()

to:
int main(void)

I didn't remember firstchess to have these issues at compiling.

Maybe you can give a try to secondchess. It was my own project some years ago, and it's basically firstchess + castle + ep. So the code isn't much more complex than first chess:
https://github.com/emdio/secondchess

BTW in the repo there is a chart_functions.png image with the relations between the functions.

Hope this helps

Yes, now I have had more time to write code, I should put more time to it in the near future. I have finished my tictactoe, which can be found at https://github.com/matrix110/Tictactoe. No quality guarantees, I just tested that it compiles

I have to admit that I haven`t looked much into C programs because C and C++ are separate languages. Not much time to chessprogramming though. I know that the engine needs to be well planned, otherwisely can happen old-fashioned :D
