Hey, Derek, do you have Zillions? You should check out the file, available at my Zillions mirror. It has balanced double move Schoolbook with your choice of the goal of capture or checkmate, as well as a balanced doublemove version of Schoolbook using Betza's much weaker "Half-Shell" pieces.

It also has a version of Schoolbook with Mats Winther's hacks to make Zillions not always start out with moving knights before pawns, albeit without the doublemove variants.
