    Probaly been mentioned before, but this would be useful for setting up set piece games. Am I going mad or was it present before the upgrade.

    I know you can get the FEN from the Game History screen, but that is only from the latest point in the game.

    The downside, I suppose,is that it probably makes things easier for cheats. But what the hell, they're going to cheat anyway!

    Edit: perhaps there could be a link in analyse board to start a new game from the current position.

    You can get the PGN from the "MY Games" screen, by clicking on Info.

    Ouroboros has written a script for Firefox with the greasemonkey extension to put the FEN on the game page. http://members.shaw.ca/ouroboros/RHP/

    I don't know how that is going to help you in setting up a set piece game though?

    Yes, that script is very good as far as it goes, but I think we need something directly from the analyse board screen, as this only takes us from the current position in the game (real time).

    Then, if you want to replay a game from a certain point you would be able to rewind to that position and start the game from there with a click of the mouse.

    There are some limitations that are listed at the top of the script.

    You really are a very clever person ouro! Now we just need Russ to implement a 'start game from this position' link, or Wulegbr's set piece idea (pasting a FEN into the set piece screen). Or can you do that as well?

    Fixed a problem in the script where the original callback was not being called after the board was rendered. New version at:
