Some pieces have been renamed

Van -> Wazir (Movement also changed: D -> W)

Ferz(Sa士) -> Ferz(In刃)

Daphne Snowmoon wrote on 2021-08-12 UTC

Piece moves reworked, Piece names modified, Castling and Enpaasant removed, Pawn rules modified, board size and piece placement changed.

Nelson // I made major changes to the rules and in the process the promotion restrictions were removed!

You can now describe the desired behavior for Pawns (regaining the double pushe when they are dropped on 2nd rank) by prefixing the double push by ii. Moves with such a prefix will be allowed whenever the piece is on a square that was occupied by a piece of that type in the start posiiton, irrespective of whether the piece moved before (and then somhow returned there). A single i prefix indicates moves that can be made only when the piece has not moved at all.

Thank you! But now Pawn's moves have changed so I don't think it's necessary to use it in Pandemonium. If I ever make other variants, I'll use them!

Castle added. I plan to gradually increase the Castle.

H. G. Muller wrote on 2021-08-25 UTC

I am very skeptical as to whether this castle is any good. In games with drops attacking is usually easier than defending, so that defending is a losing strategy. The game is a 'race to mate', and if you don't make an effort to checkmate, you will surely lose that race. You put all the strongest pieces in that castle, so you have virtually zero attack power left.

In Shogi a castle typically contains pieces with low mobility, which cannot easily be used in attack (without dropping them): Lance, Knight and the generals. I can add that even then castling is a dubious proposal: super-human players such as Alpha Zero don't find any of the popular human castles (while in Chess it finds all popular human openings!).

If castling is useful at all, a good castle should not involve any strong pieces, and consist mainly of Pawns, Guards and Knights. And perhaps a Bishop if it can 'look outward' with useful aim.

I'll take your point


Renamed piece + Repositioned piece + Changed piece type

Pawn drop mate now available It is now possible to drop a Pawn to a File that has a Pawn Pawn drop possible at Last Rank

Daphne Snowmoon wrote on 2021-09-23 UTC

Most of the rules have been modified !!

Daphne Snowmoon wrote on 2021-09-26 UTC

All descriptions of Pieces are not visible on mobile. (Other pictures are visible, but only the pictures related to the Piece move are not visible)

How to solve it?

Fergus Duniho wrote on 2021-09-26 UTC

Try using only alphanumeric and punctuation characters found in ASCII in your file names. Korean letters may not be recognized by all software.

Daphne Snowmoon wrote on 2021-09-27 UTC

As you said, I changed the file name to English, but I still can't see the pictures related to the piece move on mobile...

If I use Safari browser's reader view, I can't see all the descriptions in 'Pieces'

However, if I hide the reader view, the shape of the picture is broken.

Fergus Duniho wrote on 2021-09-27 UTC

On my iPad, Safari's Reader mode is skipping the whole Pieces section. Without Reader mode, things look fine in both Safari and Chrome. I also tried Firefox's Reader mode on my Likebook Mars. It did not skip the Pieces section, though it did mess up your ASCII diagram.

Daphne Snowmoon wrote on 2021-09-27 UTC

Ummm... is this an unsolvable problem?

Fergus Duniho wrote on 2021-09-27 UTC

It might be. It looks like Safari's Reader mode makes inappropriate decisions about what to exclude. In another page I looked at, it showed the Pieces section but skipped the Rules section. My advice would be to not use its Reader mode on this site. It should be unnecessary anyway, since mobile pages here leave out sidebar ads.

Fergus Duniho wrote on 2021-09-27 UTC

I fixed the problem by no longer enclosing each section in SECTION tags.

Daphne Snowmoon wrote on 2021-09-27 UTC

thank you!!

But for some reason, the text often looks red. hmm

Ben Reiniger wrote on 2021-09-27 UTC

The red is because the text is now wrapped in an <a> tag, and hovering over that changes the text color.

Fergus Duniho wrote on 2021-09-27 UTC

Okay, I closed the A tags, and now the text is no longer red in regular mode, and it's no longer blue in Reader mode.

Daphne Snowmoon wrote on 2021-09-29 UTC

Ben, Fergus // Really thanks for helping !!

Daphne Snowmoon wrote on 2021-10-24 UTC

I implemented the piece icon, how to install, and more!

Daphne Snowmoon wrote on 2021-10-28 UTC

You can even actually play Pandemonium on the bot-spam channel on Pychess Discord!

Daphne Snowmoon wrote on 2022-05-03 UTC

I Fixed a typo

Pawn : Moves one square orthogonally forward


Pawn : Moves one square orthogonally forward or sideways

Daphne Snowmoon wrote on 2022-05-11 UTC

I Fixed a word

Promotes to 'Scepter' -> Promotes to 'Kangaroo'

Daphne Snowmoon wrote on 2022-05-21 UTC

I added 'Campmate'.
