    How does one castle in FRC?
    This is from a set piece game using a Chess960 board

    I'm white in this position and it is my move, but when I try to move the rook around the king to d1, it doesn't let me.
    Neither the rook or King has moved from the original position.

    it won't be possible to castle with the king in the wrong place.

    haven't play chess960 on here, but you should be able to castle. the king stays on c1 and the A rook goes on d1 just try moving the rook on d1.

    Here are the rules that should be implemented (see bottom).

    According to the rules, I should just be able to move the A rook to d1 and be done with it as neither king nor R on a1 have moved. The path is not obstructed.
    When I created the game, I did leave the castling boxes checked. Basically, I clicked 960 board, and that was it.

    Has anyone castled in 960 before on RHP?

    I didn't even know that we had a full Fisher Random (chess960) at this site. Yes we can setup a FR initial board, and go from there, but since FR has somwhat different rules concerning castling, and these rules doens't work, it isn't full FR.

    Russ has said that full Fisher Random is about to be implemented...
