Oops, my bad! Non-capture only is indicated by 'n', not by 'm'. I was mixing it up with Betza notation. :-(

So the non-capturing Rook (Betza mR) would be R: (1,0,sn*). An 'm' would be simply ignored; FairyGen checks for occurrence in the string behind the second comma for 'n', 'c', 's' and '*' only. You don't have to specify anything about captures if you don't want them.

Using (0,0) as step for a completely immobile piece might work, as the piece would see itself in the target square, and captures of friendly pieces is never allowed. It should not be needed, though. But there must be a space behind the colon, perhaps this was the problem.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

Top level header: <H1>

Block quote

Second paragraph in block quote

First Paragraph of response. Italics, bold, and bold italics.

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.

Secondary Header: <H2>

  • Unordered list item
  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
    • Nested list item

Third Level header <H3>

  1. An ordered list item.
  2. A second ordered list item with the same number.
  3. A third ordered list item.
