(4x4x8, Cells: 128) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Charles Gilman wrote on 2005-11-25 UTCThe update is now posted and I have requested an inverted Unicorn image for the Horn, which I had forgotten to before. Charles Gilman wrote on 2004-07-17 UTCI notice one slip-up in my notation: I have used B for both Bishop (2nd rank) and Brassgeneral (1st rank). However the letters are only for guidance as I have not given letters for promotees: any implementation would something more symbolic. It occurs to me that as 'more sideways than forward/backwards' obliques are not used in Shogi they could represent 3d radials in move-diagram symbols. I tried to draw some examples in Ascii Art, but the Preview stuck in extra newline characters which made them look all wrong. Charles Gilman wrote on 2004-07-05 UTCRegarding rotating the pieces, ANY rotation swaps rouind two pairs out of top/bottom, left-rigt, front/back and leaves one pair alone. Changing ownership of an unpromoted piece swaps front/back and leaves top/bottom alone. Promotion swaps top/bottom and leaves front/back alone. Changing ownership of a promoted piece and simultaneous demotion (as in Shogi capture) swaps both and leaves left/right alone. Tnunelshogi intermewdiate promotion leaves top/bottom alone but swaps top/left/bottom/right cyclically. Regarding piece details what I keep off the page is name origins. I briefly describe moves here, but admittedly assume familiarity with two components and ability to extrapolate a third. Perhaps before describing linepiece promotion I should add a sentence (with suitable hyperlinks): 'Their respective short-range versions the Wazir, Ferz, and Viceroy do NOT occur as pieces here but are mentioned as their moves are added during promotion and are also components of generals.' Would this help or is something even more explicit needed? 3 comments displayedLater ⇩Reverse Order⇧ EarlierPermalink to the exact comments currently displayed.
