Although the code described on this page will still work as described, it has been made obsolete by recent developments in GAME Code. Although this page does describe code very similar to what is still used in many presets, it no longer describes the code used for the Chess presets, which has been completely revamped from the ground up. To see the current state of the Chess preset, go here: /play/pbm/play.php?game=Chess&settings=Abstract&submit=Edit and here: /play/pbm/includes/chess.txt You will find the code in the include file well-documented by comments.
