Re: Engines playing Musketeer Chess, good price

@Ferd I get the first perft all correct. Ok good. The second one is wrong after and including perft(3) That position is complicated not sure if mine is even correct. If we don't agree at perft 3, here is the perft divide at 3. Can be of help to track down the issue. Perft divide 3 a2a3 : 1326 a2a4 ...

Re: Engines playing Musketeer Chess, good price

It is not allowed to gate if the piece is pinned.

Re: Engines playing Musketeer Chess, good price

I think that what Daniel meant is that if b1 gets attacked, and your Cannon is at b0, you would not gain anything by playing Nc3 without gating the Cannon, (even if that was allowed, which I think it isn't), as this would surely make you lose the Cannon without compensation, as it could never be ga...

Re: Engines playing Musketeer Chess, good price

But there is a rule that a musketeer piece loses its right to gate if its to_square is no longer a virgin. Example (see image below) black to play and would like to play f5b1 capturing the knight at B1 square, in this case the white cannon at b file loses its right to gate for the rest of the game....

Re: Engines playing Musketeer Chess, good price

If a fairy piece had the chance to get into play but declined it, it is as if the piece is out of the game forever, right? Right. So why not make this move forced? No player is ever going to decline to do that anyway... also it is easier to handle for engines too i.e. b1c3 and b1c3C are the same no...

Re: Engines playing Musketeer Chess, good price

Also, I am not sure I understand the negotiation rules. It has 2 initial game phases in order. 1. PS (piece selection) phase 2. GP (gating preparation) phase. Starting position used by Jocly (an internet server, was down still down). See image 1. image 1 https://camo.githubusercontent.com/a2daf9eb7...
