You are on the backup site for 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. So, if you are not here to test, develop, or merely read this site, you may want to change .org to .com in the navigation bar and go to the main site.

Initially I did not implement it because the Play-Test Applet is not suitable for specifying a variant with Shogi promotion: the order of the piece definitions is critical in that case, while the Applet inherits the order from the table of available pieces, without any interface for re-ordering them. But now that Diagram specifications can be pasted back into the Applet, this has changed. I guess I should make the textbox in which the HTML for the Diagram appears when you press the button editable. Then users could re-order the piece definitions there, and paste it back. Or perhaps there should even be a button for reloading what is in that textbox.
