I've been having problems with the Local Network Mode. I have rules set to allow all communication for Banksia. However on Windows 10 when I start a network game it has not been registering on the Remote machine. I have even went so far as to temporarily disable firewall, but still no success.

Note that I can see the status messages stating that *System has joined, but the new game window never appears on the remote machine. Everything used to work fine some versions ago.

Well Gold can work when paired with the right board colors.

This looks better: https://i.ibb.co/8jK4XF3/2020-08-30-7-28-13.jpg

Perhaps, I should say "me too".

However, I have experience about that. A long time ago, I released a freeware chess Java Applet with highly customizable. One of the busy websites used that applet but supprised me much since it didn't use any themes I built carefully and showed in the demo nor somethings closed but a strong plain gold color instead. That made me doubt much about my art ability for a while :wink:
