Spanish Chess 1500

If you had a Java-capable browser, you could play Spanish Chess 1500 here.
Keys "s"=save "l"=load "b"=back once

The queen moves one square diagonally only, except she can jump two diagonally on her first move, but may not capture when jumping. Pawns promote only to queens and may also make the jump on the first move. There is no castling, but the king can leap if he has not been in check. Bare king wins.

Thanks to Tom King for help with the debugging.
