Yes!  This should do it:

FindRule( Move50Rule ).TypesThatResetCounter.Add( Massai );
FindRule( Move50Rule ).SetRequiredDirection( Direction( 0, 1 ) );

The need for only resetting the counter when moving forward was added long ago for Chess and a Half.  I don't remember ever needing the TypesThatResetCounter list before ...  Maybe it was added for something or maybe I was just anticipating.
