Just like to point out.

https://www.chessvariants.com/play/pbm/play.php?game=Chess+with+Different+Armies&log=pallab-cvgameroom-2006-64-786

In this game, I was white and I won the game. However the game courier shows that my opponenet won the game.

I am wondering why that is so? I don't clearly see anything in the code that precludes mixed pieces.

I am testing with a modified preset

http://play.chessvariants.com/pbm/play.php?game%3DAssymetric+army%26settings%3DFIDE-Assym1

But whenever I tried to actually play a RR vs FF preset appears, not my modified army. I would appreciate any help.

Nice to see you back. When you were not around I found this cite and become a fan of CWDA.

Anybody like to play this army? Although I do not really like the nightrider piece I can still play with it. Nightrider is always a problem and it is difficult to calculate with it :). Another queen variant which is short range is NBD or NAFD.

What happens with a KRKW endgame, I guess it is a draw just like KRKN endgame.

There was one Chess with different armies tournament 2001. As far as I know
none has been arranged after that. I was wondering if people are interested
in another one. Let me know and we can continue this discussion.

CWDA is one of the best chess variant there is. The best point about it the main concept is simple yet deep and brilliant. It is certainly the most chess like variant. In Betza's language 'Heavy duty chess'. Another variant which may come close to this realization of 'brilliant yet simple idea', is the Kamikaze Shogi variant by Fergus.

One can not move into check although the rules states that the goal of the game is to capture the opponent king, not to checkmate it.

'Not all of my games are jokes, you know.' 
Question is that whether this particular variant is a joke or not, it is not about your other variants.

Sam,
Creating a new chess variants is 'trivial'. Yea it is as trivial as
writing a poetry. Anybody can write down some matching words in five minutes
but a good poetry is something non-trivial. Same goes here!
