    Is there a way to turn it off? It really bugs me and messes me up.

    agreed. I dont need to see what piece moved last, I do it as if it were a position in a book that said "white to move"

    the 2 extra green squares harm calc a bit.

    I'm using Olive Grove board and it's barely noticeable on that colour.

    I think it's quite useful - I don't think I will remember without it. Do you mean you could still recall the opponent's last move?

    You don't need to know the last move to 'play the position'.

    Evaluating a position on the board eliminates "What is this guy up to with that last move". That can be distracting from the position of the board. When you solve a puzzle often you do not know what the last move was.

    I like to know what the last move was, and this probably gets me in trouble sometimes because I'm concentrating on what that last piece moved might be up to... and what's really going to happen has nothing to do with the piece just moved.

    Yes, I guess you are right - it's just me, trying to get the whole picture, especially if that last move was unexpected. 🙂

    It is nice to know what was moved etc. I just wish I could turn it off after I initially view the board. Similar to Phlab's view, for some reason then all I think is his last move was so and so rather than viewing the position.
