Oh, I know, I understand the design choice and I am used to play on the board.
Nonethless, on the screen, I see a diagram, as it should be, not a board (3d-rendering on a flat surface is a poor design choice to me).
I'm used to see chess diagrams with black on the upper side
and having it reversed make me dizzy.
I'm just wondering if there was an option to set the behaviour
I prefer. I didn't expose a flaw or criticize the design choices.
