Game Courier checks where GAME Code has been entered for a preset, whether there is a list of legal moves, and the value of the rules flag to determine the extent of a preset's rule enforcement, and it now displays this information below the board, just underneath the name of the game, which links to the rules page. It used to put this information above the board before a game began, and it didn't weigh in the value of the rules flag. It now displays it below the board during the course of a game. The rules flag can be set with the command "setflag rules;", typically in the pregame code. Setting this simply serves as a signal that the code you wrote actually does enforce the rules. It has no effect on the rest of your code, and it will not provide you with rule enforcement if you don't actually program it in.
