Since the pre-set for Janus Chess has Kings and Queens reversed from that in the rules, I wanted to point out that castling long and short are now reversed. But, to castle Kingside with the current pre-set, the Kings would go to 'i' and the rooks to 'h'... to castle Queenside the Kings would go to 'b' and the Rooks to 'c'... At least that is what I think.
