The form was using the wrong set for the alfaerie pieces. That's now been corrected.

When I tried favoriting it, it gave me a blank page without any feedback, but when I went back to the Fusion Chess page and reloaded it, both of us were listed as having favorited it.

I  just tried to "Favorite" funsion chess, and favorite.php just came back with a blank screen. (FYI)

url was like: ----://


Note I added the "--" so that the url in this message is invalid.

Hey nice idea.   This is pretty neat.  I did some testing.  When you select the Marble pieces (Black and white), there appears to me no Image for the fusion of King/Bishop.   It is showing the text "kb".  Overall very low priority to look at/fix.

I updated this a couple days ago to fully enforce the rules. Today I updated the Motif and Magnetic sets to include the royal compounds, and I added presets that use these. Note that I changed the value of o/O in the Motif set. It used to be an upside-down Queen, and it is now the Dragon King. Since I don't think anyone uses the upside-down pieces, I thought it would be okay. If anyone knows of anything using the upside-down Motif pieces, please let me know.

The commands for Game Courier automation have been greatly enhanced recently, and if you want to see a good example of what can be done with them, take a look at this preset in Edit mode.
