FIDE rules govern by default, which means that mines are captured by normal replacement in space (i.e., the capturing piece is not destroyed). The diagram is wrong with regard to the Orbiter. It can move to d4 or f4. The Zillions version of the game is rule-abiding, or so I hope, and it might help to clear up issues that perhaps aren't clearly expressed in the written rules.
