    Move the King, and only the King, the normally illegal two squares towards the nominated Rook and then click on Move. When the page refreshes it will reflect the new "castled" position.

    I have looked at Game 1043765 as this is the only public match that fits your criteria and the King is legally able to castle to the King-side Rook. ie : O-O

    Believe me, the code is all written (and it is all animated and everything ), but it can't be rushed out because of all of the other stuff bundled up with it.

    If its a legal move just move the king over 2 squares and select MOVE - the Rook moves over on completion of the move
    Remember - another criteria is you cannot move thru a checked square
