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.

Jeremy, feel free to add a new preset.

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.
