That doesn't really sound like it is a form of chess... But we will see!

Current form of chess was heavily moderated. I will definetely keep you posted with the progress.

You guys are doing a great work.

Wait, I’m confused.
Are you talking about a proper historical variant? Or are you talking about a game you invented?

This is proper historical version of game which was moderated by people since milleniums down the the time.

I cannot claim the invention because there are few other people know about this version of chess.

I am documenting my notes so that it can be played.

For now, people are not daring enough to consider it as a programming project to design a GUI.

Satyendra

I guess that is not so much because they don't dare, but more because the rules are kept secret from them... :lol:

This is not something to be kept secret, I have till now documented 10% of pictorial representation of steps and generally get few hours of spare time on sundays...

I am not criticizing that. But if up to now there is no public description of this game anywhere, it is of course a complete impossibility for any programmer to implement it, and not a matter of "not daring to consider it".

With your blessings, I have got one developer interested in designing the GUI.

I am done with 30% documentation as I get sundays only to write the rules in pdf or chm format. I am attaching how modern adaptation of Real Ancient chess looks like.

I suppose you got this when you tried to attach your PDF file with the description? Then I suppose that it is not possible to attach things to postings, because it has already been done too much. I guess this is to be expected sooner or later on a busy forum. It is a forum feature with a rather short 'expiration date'.

Perhaps it helps if you complain to the board admin in the help section, but I have little hope.
