    I would love to see an intelligent means of being able to analyze game piece value at different stages of the game. Although the following generally applies at all times:

    i.e.
    * 9 : Queen
    * 5 : Rook
    * 3 : Bishop
    * 3 : Knight
    * 1 : Pawn

    It is such that as you advance from open - mid - end game that each pieces potential value is influenced by the layout of the board and the remaining pieces on the board. It would be nice to have some means of reviewing this during the playback of old games. It would also be useful to provide a total piece value below the playing board so you can see without looking at individual pieces how the game weighs up.

    If you're using Firefox and Greasemonkey, there is a script to display the overall captured piece value below the board. You can find it at:

    These figures are misleading, please do not put them anywhere near my games.
