I managed to make the Setup's 4D diagram for this submission appear normal, as far as both the 2D mini-board checkering patterning and having a thinner spacing for the inner margins between these boards. The trick I finally came up was to use a complex checker pattern that was to be generated by the Diagram Designer. For it I used two sequences of 29 binary numbers (i.e. 1s or 0s), plus I more or less alternated these 29 digit numbers a dozen times. It seemed excessive, but I didn't succeed with other ideas that I tried.

I've increased the scale of the setup diagram slightly to make viewing it somewhat easier (e.g. to see the board co-ordinates), without the diagram being longer than I can fully see on my laptop, that is without using the sidebar. Note that I've now used a proper 4D alternating checkering pattern for the 25 5x5 2D mini-boards. I could not manage to do so, in using the Diagram Designer, without increasing (i.e. doubling) the thickness of the spacing for the inner mini-board border margins, a consequence of there being an odd number of squares for the mini-board ranks or files, unlike for my earlier 4D chess variants, which used 16 4x4 2D mini-boards.
