a position is too small to display a label, Zillions will now
display a dot. This can help you locate tiny positions.
NINUKI variants - Fixed a capturing problem.
- CHECKERS: FRISIAN CHECKERS - Orthogonal captures
weren't being allowed.
- COINS: TURNING variants - Corrected sound.
display problems when the board was enlarged:
background outside of the board wouldn't redraw properly,
e.g. moving the moves list around slowly could leave screen
with an even-valued dimension of x pixels would be enlarged
to 2x-1 pixels rather than 2x pixels, causing problems in
games with pieces that were meant to entirely cover the background.
- Fixed some bugs affecting outside games (affected
no games in Zillions):
- Puzzles with random players were not being
correctly detected as puzzles by Zillions and so the repetition
goal was being enforced as in a 2-player game.
- Pieces recycled into the store could not
be dropped unless they also appeared within board-setup using
the "off" keyword.
- If total-piece-count was used with players
at the top level (not under an "and"/"or"/"not"),
any specified players would be ignored.
incorrect syntax error that occurred when "not-attacked?"
or "not-defended?" commands were used with two arguments.
bug in checkmate games where a king would be allowed to move
into a square threatened by an enemy piece having the ability
to capture without moving.
bug in checkmate games where detection of whether a king was
in check was applied inconsistently for partial moves.
potential problems that might occur if "kill-positions"
is used on a position in a zone.
bugs with "Highlight Movable" or "Highlight Attacks":
was not being updated after a partial move.
unnecessary flickering of the highlighting while loading in
a saved game.
the popup help for "Highlight Movable" and "Highlight
Attacks" in the Board Options dialog.
- Fixed problems with the Recent Games menu:
problems with the menu and the titlebar after an attempt to
open a ZRF with a syntax error.
user ZRFs ending in "Select.zrf" to appear in the
bug where the wrong side could be reported as the winner when
loading a saved game.
- Fixed bug where "Move-types" in the
statistics window was always reported as 0.
bug where change-sound wasn't always played in some situations,
such as promotions.
"Win/Loss in x" number displayed in the search bar is
now more accurate for repetition goals.
items in popup menus for choosing moves
if they are long (to be more compatible
with older systems, which might refuse to display such menus.)
improvements to the Language Reference
