For the four kinds of stalemate rules to implement in Zillions:
  • International rules: Specify that stalemated player wins. (Condition of no pieces remaining is not necessary because having 0 pieces already means no moves available)
  • AISE rules: Specify player with 0 pieces remaining wins (stalemate is draw by default).
  • FICS rules: The count-condition in Zillions can only specify whoever has more pieces wins, not loses. So, what you can do, is specify that each player moves his opponent's pieces: (turn-order (White Black) (Black White))
  • Ebenfelt's variant: Turn off stalemate checking. Set option 'pass turn' forced.
