it may have been answered before (did search, couldn't find) but how does one generate FEN for some middlegame/endgame position? RHP offers only that of a finished game. I mean, without going into very details about FEN itself and how it's composed of. Do you have to figure it out yourself?
Do like this:
(1) Create a new game. (You don't have to go through the whole procedure, you don't actually need to start a game). Click "NewGame" in the MyGames page.
(2) In the lower left you find a link "Set up your own board". Click it.
(3) Read the instrections at the left, and put the pieces where you want them.
(4) In the bottom you find "Board Status" and "Current Fen". That's a valid Fen string. Copy it with your mouse adn Paste into whatever you like.
If you want to know how the FEN code works, it's not hard, just look it up in the FAQ
, or google it.
