    I (BlackEmperor) am playing an unrated game so I can teach my friend (Fatality) how to play Chess for the first time. However, it doesn't seem to updating our moves anymore, and refreshing it (with my browser and on the page) does not update it.

    What could be the problem?

    He has currently made a move, and it has shown his move to him (moved black pawn from G5 to G7), but it has not updated in my game.

    All Hail the Black Emperor

    This is the game that isn't updating...
    Game 662943

    That move would be illegal, so it won't be accepted.

    1. black is in check. Black therefore must make a move that gets him out of check.
    2. If black were not in check, the black pawn could move from g7 to g5, but could not make the move you described.

    does this help?
