Full Cavalry. Rooks are replaced by Lancers and castling is still legal.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Makes sense, and thank you for the compliment. I figure it would be more approachable and manageable for ChessV than 8-Piece Chess (despite my personal love of the latter).

You're welcome.

Yes, ChessV is still in development, off-and-on. New versions will be forthcoming, but I make no guarantees about what they will include. The effort involved with programming support for the Lancer is probably "moderate". But there is an almost infinite list of things that should be added, and honestly, there are many that are desired by a larger group of users. But it may happen at some point. It is an interesting piece.

Awesome, thanks Greg! On a related note, do you have any plans for ChessV updates? It'd be cool to see how the engine handles Full Cavalry. Hope all is well.
