Chu Shogi. Historic Japanese favorite, featuring a multi-capturing Lion.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Your welcome. In case your wondering how I made the preset, I mostly copied code from the Tenjiku Shogi preset (which was based on the Suzumu Shogi preset) and modified it to suit the needs of Chu Shogi and the its sets. The hardest part was implementing the Lion trading rules. For those, I used a variable to check whether a Lion was captured or not, and then tested moves based on its value. For allowing a Kirin that had just captured a Lion to be taken, I simply used a flag to mark its spot and created an exception to allow it to be recaptured.
