a crash that could occur if, on startup, Zillions was either denied
permission to access the registry or if Zillions settings did
not previously exist. This could happen if Zillions had not previously
been installed on the machine.
a position is too small to display a label, Zillions will now
display a dot. This can help you locate tiny positions.
FRISIAN CHECKERS - Orthogonal captures weren't being allowed.
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.
some bugs affecting outside games (affected no games in Zillions):
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.
recycled into the store could not be dropped unless they also
appeared within board-setup using the "off" keyword.
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.
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
to allow unlocked versions of Zillions of Games 1.Xp and 2.Xp
to co-exist on the same machine.
bug where the wrong side could be reported as the winner when
loading a saved game.
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.
