I just fixed a serious bug in the presets for Kamikaze Mortal Shogi. Whenever a Kamikaze captures a piece, it is supposed to be removed from the game. But the code was removing the Kamikaze with the capture command, which had the unintended side effect of replacing the captured enemy piece with the capturing Kamikaze. This would cause the capturing Kamikaze to be put in hand in place of the captured enemy piece. I have now fixed this by using an alternate method for removing the capturing Kamikaze. I looked over the tournament game currently being played between Ben Good and Michael Howe to see whether this bug had affected their game. Apparently, it hasn't, since neither side has yet made a capture with a Kamikaze.
