Board Size & Bitmaps

Postby Gabriel_Ruan » 10 Jun 2021, 19:56

Hello. Is it possible to play Shatranj at board size Large? I made 80px bitmaps that work in 'normal' chess but not variants it seems.

As an aside, I was wondering whether or not it is possible to use custom bitmaps in lieu of text at large sizes, in the case of Chu Shogi for instance.

Update: enabling font-based pieces allows me to scale the window as much as I want, but otherwise it is capped at size Medium for some reason.

Update #2: I created a second set of piece graphics for use in Shatranj at a size of 64px, which is reportedly the medium board size, but alas they don't display either.

Update #3: I can't make sense of the board sizes. I think they were capped at medium for some reason, but in fact smaller sizes don't work the way you'd expect them to either.

Thank you.
