You are on the backup site for Any posts, moves, or other changes you make here will not be permanent, because the pages and database from the main site will be backed up here every midnight EST. Additionally, things may not be working right, because this site is also a testbed for newer system software. So, if you are not here to test, develop, or merely read this site, you may want to change .org to .com in the navigation bar and go to the main site.

Circular Chess

Here is the new preset for Circular Chess. It enforces the rules, and it renders the board as a JPG image at 70% reduction in size.

Note to Developers: Rule enforcement is made possible by some additions to the GAME Code language for using logical directions, similar to how directions are defined in Zillions-of-Games. Study this preset and its include file for details. Read the Developer's Guide for details on the new functions used for logical directions.
