Saying that this variant is derived from 'Infinite Chess' without a link is unhelpful. It means that the reader has to look under I in the index and discover that the ones here and here aren't the one. Unfortunately when they get here and try the link from it they will discover that this page cannot be dsisplayed. Do you know where the last has been moved to, and if so is there any chance of a link?

You say that you have changed the Pawns anyway, compared to the elusive original. So each player has two lots that cross each other. Are each lot barred from capturing outside the line of four orthogonals along which they make their noncapturing moves, as the ones in my Fivequarters are? If not, what happens if they turn onto off it? Does it make a difference whether they do so in the enemy loop or their own?
