I don't believe we use temporary userid numbers. If you're having problems, you might be entering a userid or password that it doesn't like. But I'm not sure what the details are on acceptible userids and passwords. David Howe can fill you in better than I can.

I have tried to registor as a new user and it won't send my tempory user ID number. I watched some one else do the same thing. What do I do? how do I know if I'm doing it right?

I'll look into it Ben, but Zillion's handling of attacked checks don't work very well in double-move games.

apparently i never got around to mentioning this before... i noticed some time ago that zillions does not enforce the rule that a king in check can not make a drop move. this is a critical rule, and so it should be implemented if possible.

Alas, that is not one of the things that Zillions gives you control over.

i noticed recently that the way zillions numbers the moves does not match the way they are really supposed to be numbered. which may not sound like a big deal, but it can make things confusing when playing by email and trying to track down an error. so i'm wondering if this would be difficult to fix.

Black's castling has been fixed, history revision is now 1.1

I'll fix the castling tonight. As for adding or removing pieces, yeh, that's a problem with some games. If you do that with Arabian Nights Chess or Gothic Isles Chess, for instance, you will likely mess up the bare King handling (bare King handling counts captured pieces -- the Zillion's (pieces-remaining 1) construct won't allow baring back for a draw, since it happens immediately).

it appears that castling works for the white pieces but not for the black pieces, this neeeds to be fixed. <P> of less importance, but something that i've never seen before - and possibly something that can't be fixed given the nature of the game - is that if you artificially add or remove pieces in the middle the game, zillions gets confused and doesn't allow any pieces to be moved.
