    . . . doesn't appear to work. (For me that is!) Am I doing something wrong?

    Yes, I obeyed all the rules of chess. I moved the king but the rook didn't!

    Hmm, I think I recall someone else having this problem.

    The problem lies in castling not being supported in the "Quick mode" of conditional moving. Same for en passent.

    Try using the "Deep Mode". And tell us if it works, hey?

    Thanks. I'll try that when the chance arises again. Is this something Russ could fix I wonder. You there Russ?

    Had the opportunity to try conditional castling myself. It works in the "Deep Mode" of conditional moves.

    Agree with Dudley though, the move is common enough to be part of the "Quick mode".

    I have raised the issue in the Site Ideas forum. Maybe we'll get feedback from there.

    Yes, I utilse deep mode whenever castling..you have to move both the K and R individually..I assume this works as I've made many such moves and I think I'd have noticed by now if the game was returned to me needing the moves to be made again, those that I have in my in game notebook.
