    Redhotpawn allowed my opponent to castle across a check. Is that a bug in the software or am I missing something? (I am an experienced chess player but only recently started using Redhotpawn) Game 12135508

    You didn't castle through check. Your rook passed through a square that was attacked, but that's ok because "check" doesn't apply to rooks!

    I presume you are referring to Black's 18. ... 0-0-0. Your opponent's king did not pass through check. The move was legal.
