Play Chinese Chess (Xiángqí) on Game Courier

These presets are for playing the Chinese form of Chess, known as Xiángqí, on Game Courier, our online play-by-mail system. Each preset will enforce the rules and spot check, checkmate, and stalemate. They recognize normal illegal moves, such as a piece moving as it can't or a player moving into check. But they will not enforce the rule against repeated checks. That is up to the players to abide by. If you find any bugs, please report them to Fergus Duniho. The presets here come in a selection of board/piece combinations, and users are free to choose any other board/piece combination after they begin playing. Each combination comes in a CSS version and in a JPG or PNG version.
