Yes, and I have now increased the relative value of the Elephant and removed the small board since it was too small. The Elephant is still less valuable than the knight, but the difference is not that big. The Elephant (Silver General in Shogi) is surprisingly powerful, despite its slowness, as it is a strong defensive piece, but it is also powerful in mating attacks. To be certain that you have the latest version, please download again.
