If I may be aloud to jump into this one, I tend to agree with HG here. After some size, let's say >144 squares, such explanations tend to become tedious and neatly packing them to some degree actually helps, it helps me at least :)! This is why I have never fully read the wikipedia page on the 25x25 and 36x36 shogi variants. They are way to tedious (as I see you are more passionate about this than me, maybe you could do something about it on this website allong with Maka Dai-Dai, and maybe the others, but that is definetly a hellishly tedious task for someone to undertake, your time is most likely better spend in other ways).

HG, anyway this way has it's shortcommings too :)! Many pieces have very special abilities that are in the best case difficult to represent with betza notation, and in many cases are outside the scope of the initial notation, which to my understanding was chess with different armies and regional variants :)! Anyway I see you took steps in that direction, too so mostly it is just me noticing rather than anything else :)!
