This preset still seems to not be showing queens properly, at least in logs in finished games. Also, there may be a bug with the preset:

The graphics set used for this game, which is in http://www.chessvariants.com/graphics.dir/gifford/catapults_of_troy/, is missing a Queen. I will change it to the default value for the time being.

Thank you, Gary, that's been my thought too, but I haven't been able to get it to go back to a previous move so I wonder if that previous function may have been inadvertently disabled. Or did I just forget how to do it? I sent you a game invite mainly so after move three, you could test it out, though you could do it more quickly by inviting yourself to a game. I'd like to play Time Travel Chess of course anyway....

To my knowledge it still works to send the king back in time. There was never a special function or code for this. You just view the earlier position using the standard pre-set feature, then add the time traveling king to the game.

Did the feature allowing one to go back in time get disabled or did I just forget how to do it?
