4-handed Shatranj: I have fixed a bug where all pieces weren't always recruited at king capture. Now the program is also stronger, I believe. Download the updated version of 4-handed Shatranj(Four Seasons Chess) here: http://hem.passagen.se/melki9/4shatranj.htm In this program promotion occurs to queen. Is this wrong? Should it be fers?

I really enjoy this implementation, but if I'm not mistaken, one of the rules is incorrect: the queen does not move like its modern counterpart, but simply one square in a diagonal direction. I would like to see how the game plays when corrected. http://www.chessvariants.org/historic.dir/4seiz.html Or am I mistaken, and this is a slightly later development in the four player game?
