    I like the comparison of the catured pieces very much!
    It's perfect that they are sorted by value (other, but not so good idea: captured time). But one can't compare too well if for example I caputred the Queen, and my oponnent a rook (and other equal pieces). You konw what I mean?
    Would it be possible to leave a speace under my Queen and above it's rook? What do you think about that?

    I think you're talking about having a 'fixed' location for each captured piece. 1 for each Queen, White above the Black, 4 for the other pieces, etc... instead of 'cramming' them into a line at the bottom of the screen. I think that would be a cool idea!

    Along the same line, what if there was displayed the 'point' differential between the players. ie. White +1 if they have a 1 pawn advantage.....

    Where would captured promoted pawn pieces go?

    Yes, exactly! Thanks...

    And for promoted pieces we'll find a solution!

    It freaked me out recently when I flicked to the next game & saw that my queen was on the captured line (which is by the way a very cool feature!).
    I'd forgotten that I had promoted a pawn (suicidally) so that was by 2nd queen. It'll look wierder when I lose the 2nd one.

    In the appropriate 'fixed' pawn location of course.

    The problem would be with promoted pawns. Where would your 2nd Queen go for example? Maybe this is not a good idea.

    I still like to point differential so that at a glance you could see who is ahead materially.

    a "captured pieces line" in the game history would be great. but too much work I guess... :'(
