This preset has become completely broken.  It errors when making any move.

Great, thanks! Did you also see how when you go back to a previous move the board faces the wrong way?

As I predicted, your opponent is playing Black. The condition for checking whether Black could promote was missing a minus sign. I have fixed that, and I have also modified the code to handle Pawn promotion automatically.

On a related topic, the game courier preset doesn't promote pawns. My opponent didn't do it, so I went back and repeated my previous move with a note to him to promote the pawn (it wouldn't let me do it for him.) The strange thing is when I went back to repeat my last move, it showed the board rotated the wrong way even though it was my turn to move. Then, when I repeated my move, it said 'Move made by black' when it should have said 'Move made by white.' I think everything is still ok with the game, though, regardless of the temporary glitch...
