Stephen, Before we go to far, I need you to know (as it is not clear from the instructions posted on CV right now), that the Bishop can actually 'castle' with either the knight or the queen/minister next to it, as long as neither piece has moved. It is optional to do the Bishop-castling (and it can only be done with one of the Bishops, but not both). This is the move that converts one of the Bishops from the black squares to the white squares. I'm working on building the preset to recognize the special rules of Modern Chess, but for the time being, we are playing the first trial game of the preset. Probably the first game ever of Modern Chess played in the internet. Thanks for trying the variation (and making history).
