    Hi guys.
    We are starting to analyse games in our private forum and would like to show a pictorial representation of a board before the game has concluded.
    I think I am right in saying RHP does not have the facility to do this, you can only get a FEN from the final position.
    Now I can work it out myself but it takes me ages and is usually full of bugs.
    In short
    I want to analyse a board and get a FEN from any position.
    I think there must be some 3rd party software out there that will let me do this.
    Cheers

    No, no, you can do this within RHP. Here's the way:

    Go to "New Game" page.
    Click "Advance Options"
    And check the "Play from set piece"

    Here you have a board where you can set up any position and you see the corresponding FEN-string. This you can cut and paste as you like.

    Glad that I've made someone happy today - and it is still morning (in my timezone).
    The day begins well!
