    I am fairly new to the site (not a member yet... still on the fence) and I have never tried En Passant. So I am setting up a Conditional Move against a buddy I am playing and I can not figure out how to do it if he tries to move his pawn past mine. I tried taking his pawn (no luck), I tried moving to the square where I would be after En Passant (no luck), and I tried cursing at the monitor (some luck).

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I dont use conditional moves, but I would expect you would have to make the same En Passant move as normal (go to the square you would be after en passant).

    I know that a while ago people noticed en passant wasnt working in conditional moves yet. I have no idea if this has been fixed tho.

    I am guessing it still doesn't work in Conditional Moves since I tried exactly what you said (as well as other things as you can read in my original post).

    It turned out that I did not need to make the move anyway. The person I am playing understands the game well enough to see that move coming. Thanks for the reply!
