There are five positions critical to Chess960 / FRC to be verified:

Thank you for confirmating / refuting results.

(kings and rooks while being unmoved and having castling rights are marked by a '*' instead of column letters)

Thank you for confirming - those are heavy Chess960 positions.

Yes, I remember I had problems with orthogonal opponent slider on back rank preventing FRC castling some time ago (this can't happen in orthodox chess) - position #4.

These are great!

These positions have helped me find a flaw in my makemove that would corrupt the board in FRC positions where the king moves to the rook square (basically, the rook wasn't removed before the king moved there).

With that fixed, I can also confirm the perft counts.

I'm implementing FRC in RubiChess these days and I'm in trouble with this special perft position. In ply 7 Rubi finds only 6447669103 instead of the correct 6447669114 moves so she misses 11 moves. Up to ply 6 everything is fine. Can anybody imagine which special tricky position can be on the board after 6 plies that has missing moves?

Try a distributed perft, where you see the node counts for each node at ply 1. Then, make the move for which the node counts are off and repeat until you get to a position where you’re off at depth 1.

Okay. But for this idea I need some reference data e.g. from an engine that does it correct, right? Will search for an engine that can output perft nodes per move at ply1... Ethereal will be my first bet.

SjaakII can do that. “Perft 6 1” does a distributed perft to depth 6 and outputs node counts for every move at ply 1.

Okay, thanks. I just noticed it is yours :-)
Already did the very few changes needed in Ethereal and distributed perft is running... But I will have a look at Sjaakll later.
