Notes

This zip file contains ZRFs for Shogi, Mortal Shogi, and Kamikaze Mortal Shogi. They are bundled together because they share most of the same graphics. The Shogi ZRF is an optimized and finetuned ZRF, written by Fergus Duniho, that plays better than the one that comes with Zillions. It also includes new and improved graphics, designed by Fergus Duniho. These include symbolic pieces, pieces with images of Chess pieces, single-character Japanese pieces, and diagrammatic pieces. It also includes a checkered board and a marble board. Besides these, the graphics that come with Zillions may also be used. The ZRFs for Mortal Shogi and Kamikaze Mortal Shogi were both based on the one for Shogi, and so they share the same improvements.
