HG,

The preset (here : https://www.chessvariants.com/play/pbm/play.php?game%3DGrand+Apothecary+Chess+1%26settings%3DApplet) does not apply the shuffle algorithm as the interactive diagram does. Normally the nightrider and warlock should shuffle on the left side and then mirror in the right side and then mirror for black. Initially they were not shuffling at all.

I have added this piece of code before calling the shuffling algorithm: (Y W) // shuffleset 0 0

And now sometimes it shuffles the pieces on the same side. Meaning 2 warlock on the right and two knighriders on the left. Probably this is because I do not undersand the meaning of the 2 zeros.
