Any posts, moves, or other changes you make here will not be permanent, because the pages and database from the main site will be backed up here every midnight EST. Additionally, things may not be working right, because this site is also a testbed for newer system software. So, if you are not here to test, develop, or merely read this site, you may want to change .org to .com in the navigation bar and go to the main site.

Victorian Chess on Game Courier

Here is a selection of presets for playing Victorian Chess on Game Courier. Click on one of the buttons below to choose a preset. Each preset enforces the rules, and each can spot check, checkmate, and stalemate. All the following presets use the same settings file and differ only in how they have been customized to use different pieces, boards, and rendering methods. If you find any bugs in the routines used for enforcing the rules, please report them to Fergus Duniho. Interested developers should note that this preset makes use of the chess2 include file.
