Hex Shogi 81 Preset for Game Courier

Created by Fergus Duniho, Hex Shogi 81 is an adapation of Shogi to a hexagonal version of the usual Shogi board. The board has the same dimensions and uses the same coordinates as the usual Shogi board. The only difference is that spaces are interpreted as hexagons instead of as squares. This preset will enforce the rules, spot check, checkmate, and stalemate, and automate captures and non-optional promotions. Please report any bugs to Fergus Duniho. As long as you don't make any illegal moves, bugs can be fixed without breaking your current game.
