well this is an excellent zrf of course, all these 'capa' variants on 1
zrf, nice board, graphics, all pretty cool. 
if you update in the future, 'schoolbook' is another, plus what about
this site here, this looks interesting i think, yes?

The next time you update this master file ...

A worthy inclusion would be a game invented by David Paulowich that I
believe is entitled Outrigger Chess.  It is only described in an article
by Betza listed on the CV Pages as 'Outrigger Chess'.  The unique
properties of this Capablanca variant have been discussed recently at the
Yahoo group Chess Variants.  Its opening setup is a piece of cake.

One thing I like is how the castling rules are set up in the ZRF, allowing the king to have different initial squares and still be able to castle. This gives me a lot of flexibility with how I can set up the pieces in the opening, allowing me to use Zillions to prototype a number of opening setups for the pieces.

I just checked, and the ZRF was in the zip file. But I did just update it because I fixed some graphics.

When I unzip this file, there is no ZRF. Will you update soon?
