Some questions

Postby Philippe Etard » 30 Aug 2008, 09:49

Hello,

My question is about the size of the chessboard. Is it possible to modify the chessboard with FIDE pieces and rules. Size 7x5. I have seen a screenshot of a mini variant.

7 . . . . .
6 . . . . .
5 . . . . .
4 . . . . .
3 . . . . .
2 . . . . .
1 . . . . .
A B C D E

A1 Rook B1 Queen C1 King D1 Knight E1 Bishop
A2 to E2 pawns
Symetrical position for Black.
Castle King to B1(8) and Rook to c1(8).

I have another question related to internet chess. I have downloaded the latest Winboard 4.3.14k but when I connect to FICS, it says a file is missing.
Can you help me.
Thank you.
Philippe Etard

Which file? Considering timestamp (the ICC equivalent) isn't included, it's probably timeseal.exe. I couldn't find a stand-alone download, but http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/winboard/winboard-4_2_7b.exe

Timeseal and Timestamp missing. I copied them and it works now. Thank you.
