I am just about to implement Chess480 in my SMIRF program. SMIRF will then randomly select positions from Chess960, but only those, where the white king is right sided to the queen. Thus the redundant half of mirrored starting arrays is filtered out. To distinguish its FEN, a preceding 'm' is placed immediately before the castling tags block, as specified in current X-FEN.
