Well, I suppose that IDs of multiple capitals are OK. As long as you use a comma-separated promoChoice string, and the longer names don't have to be referred to in morph or captureMatrix.

Using single-letter IDs is a bit hard, with 43 different pieces.

Though I probably could break everything down to X and +X.

Beware that the Interactive Diagram superficially might not seem to care much what you use for piece IDs, but that it could wreck some of its functionality when you do not use single-letter IDs that are all different. E.g. promoChoice is not able to distinguish pieces that have the same ID, and morph and captureMatrix don't understand multi-character IDs. There might also be an issue with the ability to read back its own games.

I believe the exclamation point does make for a distinct ID: DS vs !DS.

Distinct enough, I guess.

The Deva and Dark Spirit look much better now that they have their Maka Dai Dai moves.

I'll take another good look at this one tomorrow. It's getting pretty late for me right now, as of the writing of this Comment.

I've now corrected those errors in the ID to match what's in the main text.

I believe the exclamation point does make for a distinct ID: DS vs !DS. At least, it does with the Diagram Designer. If not, H.G. can weigh in on it.

Kirin (K) and Phoenix (P) have same IDs as King and Pawn, respectively, and the Dark Spirit adn Divine Sparrow have duplicate IDs (albeit with the latter having an exclamation-point prefix). For the former two, I think you meant KR and PH as in normal Kagamigi.

Also, the decision to have the Deva and Dark Spirit promote to something with the exact same move as its unpromoted counterpart is baffling to me. I know it very occasionally happens with Taikyoku Shogi, but there isn't really a reason to do this.

Does anyone see any duplicated piece IDs?

Should I reorder the pieces in the Interactive Diagram and/or Pieces section?

Are there any problems or missing bits that I've missed?

If none of these is a "yes," then I think this is good to go.
