Sorry if the updated page is a disappointment. Is there any specific aspect that you don't like? The rule changes are an attempt to address your criticism of the forwardness, and should not be a problem for anyone familiar with both Shogi and Xiang Qi. The new setup layout was an attempt to reduce the vertical space that it takes up. As I was raising the issue of crediting my contributions in implementations - a feature inspired by my next new variant - I thought it logical to credit those on whose own variants I had worked here. The table of pieces before and after promotion also seemed sensible.
