    I'm new to RHP but enjoying it very much.

    I hope this suggestion doesn't sound lame. I find the board analysis functionality is great. But I find myself evaluating scenarios quite a few move ahead, and when I decide on my plan of attack I have forgotten how the scenario started.

    Is it possible for the trial moves to be stored and scrolled through using the step arrows. With this system there may need to be a reset button to take the board back to current position.🙄

    This might help..many people take down notes manually (pen and paper, oh my!). Then put their determined plan in the the notes block.
    Hope that helps.

    I hope this gets done also... so lets keep pushing for it.

    But for now, check out winboard... Once you get it installed, just paste the pgn and you can explore lines, back up, etc.

    RHP is not a chesssoftware - you can play against real guys here.
    xboard/winboard can help you to do so.
    Arena is another piece of software that lets you play chess against computers, analyse games and so on. (www.playwitharena.com)
    but these programms can help you: you may even import all your games here at RHP into these applications: just get the pgn or FEN of it and paste it into chessamster or whatever.

    But remember that it is against the rules to use a computer to help you decide what move to make. That is, don't say either 'what does the computer think I should do here' or 'what would the computer do if I did this'. It's OK to use a database of openings, though.

    thanks for saying that.
    but it's allowed and good to make an analysis after the game finished.
    I do that sometimes.

    I have a few things to do, but a new rewrite of the whole client board code is due soon. (To include flipping, etc)

    There is no reason why I could not do this too.
