    In a recent game I attempted to promote a pawn to a queen. For some reason, it came out as a knight. The game's still going on, but (obviously) not quite as I'd like. Anyone else had this problem? I'm not looking for a way to win, but it'd be nice to know why it happened and if there's a magic wand solution... 🙂

    I've never had this happen, but will admit it's been a long time since I marched a pawn!

    Good luck, but this will be a hard bug to prove.

    Probably your best action would be to send Russ a message and give him the game number, etc. and he can possibly look through it and find out what happened.

    Oh, and if you want me to fix the game, you need to suspend play straight away.
