this looks interesting too, i like the javelin and the way it captures and
disappears after capture.
i think you might have an error, to do with the pawns. you say that it
captures forward (except when en passant) but if you right-click on pawn
and select 'properties' it says that it can capture diagonally also.
oh, i just noticed it also says in 'help' (mouse over piece to give 
description) that pawns capture diagonally
i'll check this game out soon.
edited: tough to play (for me anyway he he) .. plays good :)
