These are the graphics I prefer for this variant, from Alfaerie - Many:

For the Bishight, this one, b.n

For the Knishop, this one, n.b

The ones used for this preset are very confusing to me and hard to keep straight.

Jeremy, feel free to add a new preset.

I agree that the pieces that Jeremy presents are easier to understand -
these are the pieces that ChessV uses.  But Tony created the preset and so
I can't change it.  And what he did was reasonable, because creating a new
piece set would have been a lot of work, and, at the time he made it, there
wasn't the all-inclusive 'Alfaerie: Many' piece set, and Game Courier
wouldn't have supported such a thing - at that time, pieces could only be
represented by a single letter.

But yes, Jeremy, if you want to replace that I would be all for it.
