Kamikaze Mortal Shogi. Send your Kamikazes on suicide missions in this Shogi variant.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

The 'Motif Shogi on Wood' piece set doesn't seem to have a piece for the Kamikaze. If you could add it, that would be great; I really like that particular piece set.

I have updated the presets for Kamikaze Mortal Shogi to spot check,
checkmate, and stalemate. The code for this can be seen in any of the
presets for it, such as this one:


And in the include file, which is the same one used for Shogi:

I just fixed a serious bug in the presets for Kamikaze Mortal Shogi. Whenever a Kamikaze captures a piece, it is supposed to be removed from the game. But the code was removing the Kamikaze with the capture command, which had the unintended side effect of replacing the captured enemy piece with the capturing Kamikaze. This would cause the capturing Kamikaze to be put in hand in place of the captured enemy piece. I have now fixed this by using an alternate method for removing the capturing Kamikaze. I looked over the tournament game currently being played between Ben Good and Michael Howe to see whether this bug had affected their game. Apparently, it hasn't, since neither side has yet made a capture with a Kamikaze.

I'm glad you like the graphics. I even made a Japanese Kamikaze piece, using the Japanese character for wind. Kamikaze literally means divine wind.
