The rules I found states something such as a player that causes  the facing
of generals can typically do this as a last resort (I am new to this and
can't answer why).  However, this player gives up his/her right to win the
game, being able to draw at best.  I did a little research and I am sure
you can find the same thing if you google it, as I did.  Not sure if it is
correct.

Question:  The swap function has been banned in the preset I am using. 
How would you go about modifying the start positions of the elephants and
horses before play, as allowed in the rules?
