The pathology guy himself is the one naming Zebra Knight (Knight plus Zebra) here. Friedlander's Frog is the same 1,1 + 0,3.

It needs to be able to play without royal piece (capture all pieces of this side) or with more than 1 royal piece (before beggining, player must chose rules - capture all kings, checkmate last or checkmate either).

I think, only 3 pieces should be added: Shogi knight, compound of Korean
pao and vao, and another one, i was thinking about it when played it
several days ago, but forgot... Maybe, i'll tell it later. Maybe, also
royal versios of wazir. By the way, griffon can also move 1 square
diagonally (and dragon probably also should be able to move 1
I think, it's the best programm for chess variants!

When a royal Eagle moves diagonally, it sometimes creates a regular King on one of the squares next to its destination.

Hi, Ed. I think you designed all these pieces, no? I wrote you an email asking this, but I don't know whether you got it. I am wondering whether we might be able to combine all your pieces into a piece set for presets on Game Courier.

For Atomic Bomb, which squares are referred to by '1-2 squares away'? For example, if an Atomic Bomb is on c3 and Pawns are on a1, b1, c1, d1, e1, a2, b2, c2, d2, e2, a3, b3, d3, and e3, which ones will be destroyed?

Problems fixed:<BR> <UL><LI>Rhinos now work like they're supposed to.</LI> <LI>All pieces give check like they're supposed to.</LI></UL> Problems remaining:<BR> <UL><LI>A Red Crab on its 2nd rank still moves backwards and <BR> cannot move forwards.</LI> <LI>Rutland Rooks still cannot move like a Rook.</LI></UL>

•A Red Crab on its 2nd rank still moves backwards.
•It declares checkmate when I have a Bulldozer in front of my King.
•Rutland Rooks can only move and capture as Ferzes, but check 
like they're supposed to.
•The picture for Chinese Knight near the bottom page is different from
the one in the applet.

However, this is an improvement over before.

A Red Crab on its second rank moves backwards, not forwards.

Your applet has just frozen!

A lot of times, I can capture the computer's
royal piece, and the computer keeps playing.
