The Alfaerie set of piece graphics in scalable SVG format.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating] Jean-Louis Cazaux wrote on Mon, Sep 25 11:12 AM UTC in reply to Jean-Louis Cazaux from Sat Sep 23 04:10 PM:To HG: this Wolf's SVG looks a bit confusing when seen in small size on a big board. What is strange is the rounded lower side. Because the mouth can be taken for the ears or the horns of something else and the ears can be taken as a mouth. I would suggest that you make a straight horizontal line for bordering the head in the bottom (like for other animal's icons, horse, camel, etc.). I hope I am clear...

Muller from 01:20 PM:For me, more piece images = good thing (though of course I'm quite a piece-nik). I'd make a bunch if I could, but I lack both the talent and the tools. H. G. Muller wrote on Sat, Sep 23 01:20 PM UTC in reply to Lev Grigoriev from Mon Aug 14 10:57 AM:Because the Alfaerie set frequently disappointed me when I needed a canine images, I now created a wolf image for the SVG and PGN sets: BTW, there is something very sick in the Comment submission system. Several times now the message that I am posting did not appear, and no amout of retries would make it so. I would have to sign out, and then sign in again, and post entirely from scratch to make it work.

Bob Greenwade wrote on Sun, Aug 13 04:06 PM UTC:Excellent ★★★★★It's very nice seeing the Zebra compounds! I can use the Zebra/Rook for my Kuhani, and Zebra/Bishop for my Mtawala. I'll still need a Zebra/Queen for the Malkia, though (and a Camel/Queen for the Sultana would be a good sight). Likewise, Zebrariders, Gnuriders, Bisonriders, and Buffaloriders are a "thing" (though I personally use them rarely). Of course I have dozens of other pieces that I'd love to see symbols for, but asking for even a large share would be unreasonable. A couple that I would like to have, though, are the Bodyguard (from Hiashatar) and the Friend. Daphne Snowmoon wrote on Sun, Aug 13 02:34 PM UTC:May I use this for my personal variant ?

Using Game Courier with the Table rendering method, the SVG pieces would not show up on the board, though they would show up in the game description. This was so for Chrome, Safari, and Edge on my iPad2 and for Firefox and Chrome on my Fire tablet. After putting Firefox in desktop mode, I got the pieces to display on the board. I tried Edge and Chrome on my iPad and got Chrome to display the pieces on the board after putting it in desktop mode. While software on the iPad 2 may be out-of-date, Firefox is even more up-to-date on my Fire tablet than on my desktop. So, I think something else is going on, such as mobile devices limiting the display of script-generated SVGs. 🕸Fergus Duniho wrote on Mon, Dec 26, 2022 06:29 PM UTC in reply to Greg Strong from 04:46 PM: @Fergus, can you please clear this image from the cloudflare cache: https://www.chessvariants.com/graphics.dir/alfaerieSVG/wchancellor2.svg Done. 📝Greg Strong wrote on Mon, Dec 26, 2022 04:46 PM UTC in reply to Jean-Louis Cazaux from Sun Dec 25 05:16 PM: @Greg: yes it looks ok, even with Safari Thank you for confirming. This was strange. I had to open the SVGs in a text editor and look for something that looked different in this image. I found a strange code in the layer object for the layer with the knight: "filter:url(#filter869)" I don't know how it got there or why it only affected Safari. I have replaced the original image, but it is still cached for the moment. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. @Fergus, can you please clear this image from the cloudflare cache: https://www.chessvariants.com/graphics.dir/alfaerieSVG/wchancellor2.svg Jean-Louis Cazaux wrote on Sun, Dec 25, 2022 05:16 PM UTC in reply to Jean-Louis Cazaux from Sat Dec 24 07:03 PM:@Greg: yes it looks ok, even with Safari, for the image you put into the comment section. The one in the main page is still the same, with the knight part blurred. 📝Greg Strong wrote on Sun, Dec 25, 2022 12:40 AM UTC:This is a test: Ok, I think I fixed it. Please let me know if this looks OK. H. G. Muller wrote on Sat, Dec 24, 2022 08:26 PM UTC in reply to Greg Strong from 08:09 PM:The images in Jean-Louis last comment do not show up for me on an Android tablet using the Samsung browser. But when I paste their URL directly in the address bar I can see them. It could have to do with the fact that they are on a http site, while CVP is https. Depending on browser security settings links to http on a https page might not be valid. Anyway, what is seen on Safari is very strange indeed. The Knight part is totally blurred. 📝Greg Strong wrote on Sat, Dec 24, 2022 08:09 PM UTC in reply to Fergus Duniho from 07:38 PM: I updated your HTML to use IMG tags, but your images are still not showing up.

I took WYSIWYG because it was a way to include pictures, with the default mode it is not possible. I really wonder how people embed images in their comments. OK, I try again. With Safari With Firefox 🕸Fergus Duniho wrote on Sat, Dec 24, 2022 06:36 PM UTC in reply to Jean-Louis Cazaux from 05:22 PM:Judging by your source code, you are not entering images correctly. Just because WYSIWYG mode seems easier doesn't mean it is. It is not exactly like a Word Processor, and you cannot paste images to it. You need to enter an URL for an image on the web, and using the HTML or Markdown formats will let you more easily see whether you have done this. Jean-Louis Cazaux wrote on Sat, Dec 24, 2022 06:26 PM UTC in reply to Greg Strong from 06:05 PM:What a pain. How you do to upload images inside the comments? 📝Greg Strong wrote on Sat, Dec 24, 2022 06:05 PM UTC in reply to Jean-Louis Cazaux from 05:19 PM:The images you posted didn't come through, but I looked on Safari on an iPhone and I see it but I cannot explain it. As far as I know, that image is no different than any of the others. Very strange Jean-Louis Cazaux wrote on Sat, Dec 24, 2022 05:22 PM UTC in reply to Jean-Louis Cazaux from 05:19 PM:And with Firefox (not my default browser), I see this, which looks fine! : Jean-Louis Cazaux wrote on Sat, Dec 24, 2022 05:19 PM UTC in reply to Greg Strong from Fri Dec 23 08:33 PM:That's crazy. I use a Mac Book. I am looking with Safari and I see this: H. G. Muller wrote on Fri, Dec 23, 2022 08:48 PM UTC in reply to Greg Strong from 08:33 PM:To me it looks OK. Some of the horizontal Rook lines are antialiased in a bit of an unfortunate way (so that a gray edge results), but if you squint so that you cannot resolve individual pixels this disappears (as it should). 📝Greg Strong wrote on Fri, Dec 23, 2022 08:33 PM UTC in reply to Jean-Louis Cazaux from 08:04 PM:You have something going on. It is exactly the same technology with the same vectors as every other knight piece. The knight's head is slightly smaller - it has to be to fit - but the edges are of identical sharpness. Does anyone else see anything wrong with the middle piece? 25 comments displayedLater ⇩Reverse Order⇧ Earlier⇩ Earliest⇧Permalink to the exact comments currently displayed.
