Loss-condition should be King capture, not checkmate. You should also implement win-condition of just King and blocked Pawns.

I know, Fighting Chance isn't that good as a actual game, but I included it anyways. Zillions playing seems to promote to bishops a lot. To see how it was programmed, just follow the download link and you will see the codes. Search for 'Fighting chance chess' within the file to see its programming. I don't know if I programmed it perfectly though, maybe I made a mistake. But look at the codes anyways

Ha ha, I'm honoured to have my Fighting Chance in there, but I intended it to be used as a problem theme, not for a regular game. If anything it would be used for Xiang Qi or, maybe, Shogi. Since I don't have Zillions of Games, could you tell me how you programmed it? Does Zillions play well?

You need Z_GenImg library to run this file.

Am I the only one who can't play this one? The script appears broken - the file won't load and displays an error message.
