The ability of Pawns to check is now fixed.

Pawns double step and promotion have been fixed.
The problem with the pawn checks is inherited from the Victorian Chess preset.

For Pawns to promote, check the option 'Exclude Pieces not in Setup'. Doing this will create a variable that is used to indicate what pieces you can promote a Pawn to.

Curiously, Pawn checks were not being recognized in the moves I made to test this. I will look into this further.

Since your Pawns start on different ranks than in Chess, you also need to set the variables wpr and bpr in the Pre-Game section, like so:

set bpr 8;
set wpr 3;

Thanks for your help. Already have copied the Victorian Chess preset code into the Euchess preset. Everything is working well except two points:

1) Is not possible to make the pawn's sarting double move; it appears a message like this: 'You may not move a P from f3 to f5.'

2) Is not possible to promote pawns on the 10th rank. When one enter 'manually' the move, for example P f9-f10; Q-f10, it appears this message: 'You may not promote your Pawn to a Q.'

What can we do?
