Hello
I miss a piece symbol to represent the shogi generals:
Gold general: 1 step, 6 directions: 4 orthogonal (fw, bw, lw, rw) and 2 diagonal fw
Silver general: 1 step, 5 directions: straight fw, 4 diagonal

I would like to use them in some giant chess variants board
Thank you
Hi Jean-Louis
We will think about it.

If you have icons share them.

I also put again a crocodile by the head only which will be consistent with the other icons you have.

Thank you very very much Jérôme for these additional features. That's nice.

The Crocodile's head is not on-line yet.

For the Silver and Gold Generals what I needed was something iconic, I can't use the Japanese writing pieces (although they are great). Something like you have done "westernising" the xiangqi pieces, made for shogi as well, would be fine.

Of course, for xiangqi and shogi, the pieces you've made are really precious and useful to draw diagrams, but someone will ask if we can have the boards too.
Thank you again.

the crocodile is online, probably a cache problem.

try to reload this resource : https://musketeerchess.net/tools/boardp ... crocos.png

Bonjour. Je suis un peu casse-pied mais je trouve que la tête de croco n'y ressemble pas beaucoup. L'encoche entre la mâchoire inférieure et le cou ne devrait pas exister, il faudrait la supprimer, un croco a le dessous de la tête plat. Les 2 mâchoires font sensiblement la même longueur, celui ci a une mâchoire inférieure bien courte. Enfin les yeux sont placés sur le sommet du crâne, au niveau des 2 protubérances, afin d'être à fleur d'eau. Ce serait possible de le retoucher ?

Hello
I still miss a piece symbol to represent the shogi generals:
Gold general: 1 step, 6 directions: 4 orthogonal (fw, bw, lw, rw) and 2 diagonal fw
Silver general: 1 step, 5 directions: straight fw, 4 diagonal .
I can't use the Japanese shogi. Something simple like the two icons I have posted some posts above would be enough. Would it be possible to include them?
