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.

HiddenLynx

Invented by Mikko A. Oksalahti, HiddenLynx is a beautiful, user-friendly, freeware Chinese Chess program for Windows that plays a good game. It includes unlimited undo and redo, lets you drag pieces with the mouse, shows you which legal moves are available, and saves games automatically. Overall, it is a great program for Chinese Chess. Note that the menu is on the right, not where it is in most Windows programs. The game ends with capture of the General, not with checkmate or stalemate.
