I'm trying to figure out how to get the castling rules enforced properly. I really don't understand what I'm doing. Based on this preset I managed to include the fischer file and make the proper castling moves display as legal, but when I try to actually castle it says You cannot capture your own pieces. I think this has something to do with the post move sections but I'm totally lost trying to understand what needs to be changed.
