What a coincidence! At the same time i was thinking of compound variant of Jangi (because here non-capturing moves of rook and cannon don't overlap and compounds of elephant don't need complicated river restrictions, plus i wanted to add special diagonal lines on 6 border files for compound pieces). By the way, if variant with compounds of silver general counts as variant of makruk, variant with compounds of alfil is variant of shatranj, in India was variants of chaturanga with both alfil- and silver general-moving elephants.
