Omega Chess Preset for Game Courier

Omega Chess

Here is a preset for playing Daniel McDonald's Omega Chess by online correspondence with the use of Game Courier. This preset will display legal moves, enforce legal piece movement, and spot check, checkmate, stalemate, three-times repetition, and the passage of 50 turns without moving a Pawn or capturing a piece. To mark the coordinates correctly, it generates diagrams from predrawn images, and to fit on the screen, it renders diagrams as resized JPG files. Click on the image to go to the preset.
