Thank you for this message.

Concerning adding pieces i’m working on a huge update with more classic chess sets and much more “alternate” designs for existing pieces but also new ones.

The request to be able to load a classic chess board (or a classic droughts board) is not complicated to do and will be added to the to do list shortly after the piece choice update will be done.

Loading a Fen position is already possible. You can already load and save positions using board painter and it board painter can also be used as a tool to play correspondance games. This topic was discussed in earlier posts.

Jerome can be more precise concerning this.

Best regards

You should recreate old historical chess sets design. This will be a great experience for the current generation to play with these old chess set styles. Plus these unique chess styles definitely give a different look as compared to other chess boards games. As a result, this will give you some boost.

Hi David
Thank you for your suggestion.

My work resulted in having more than 37 different piece styles (the latest are still under development) + own Classic Chess Set + 7 different Alternate Pawn designs.

Reviving the old chess set styles is unfortunately not a priority. My next project will be to make all these pieces available in Rainbow colours, making it possible to play games for 3 to 10+ players.

Best regards
