I changed the checkering pattern of the settings file as you suggested, Greg.

Regarding the value of the champion on 12x10 vs. that of the bishop, my way of estimating it gives some weight to larger board size affecting long range pieces well, while short range pieces not so well. As always, people are naturally free to feel skeptical of my (or other people's) assigned values to piece types, which in my case I write that they are only tentative estimates (derived often from unproven formulae of mine and/or other people's)..
