What problems does Dipole Chess exhibit?  I have run the game a bunch of times in Zillions and it plays like Dipole does.  If problems are considered weakening of pieces, then I can understand that being seen as a 'problem'.  It isn't really.  Dipole Chess is like Dipole in that it is meant to be a game where you either capture your opponent's king, or outlast your opponent (outlast your opponent is what Dipole does).

Anyone here, including the mystery person, please explain what you see as problems with Dipole Chess.  If this is M. Howe, please say you are yourself, and explain why you didn't go the Dipole route with Advancing Chess.
