Additionally, things may not be working right, because this site is also a testbed for newer system software.

Whether in this or a related script, I have encountered both of these problems before, but I don't know what to do about them, since I didn't develop Jocly and don't know its ins and outs.

Bugs in implementation?

I played this game against the computer using Firefox under Linux and I found the following strange behavious:

1. Sometimes, the computer moved its King to the centre of the board and the game ended. I see reasons for the computer to resign in the concrete situation (and it does not resign in really lost postions). I noticed that castling was a promising move for the computer.

2. When I get a pawn through to promotion, I cannot choose a piece to promote it to. I get a white band over the middle files of the boards, but cannot click on anything. There is a (x) mark, but it does not close the white band either.
