I am trying to use this SFEN code. The site accepts the code, but when I try to start the game, it just goes back to the home page without starting the game. Any help with this is greatly appreciated!
The SFEN is:
SFEN Code Doesn't Work
@NickAlexander The SFEN is invalid, as it can't contain the underscore characters "___"
ln1gkg2l/2s4s1/p1pp+Bpnpp/1r4p2/7P1/P8/2GPPPP1P/2S6/LN2KG+r1L b BPsn3p 1
That's interesting though. It doesn't tell you it's invalid if you are on the home screen. But it does (correctly) consider it invalid if you use the board editor.
I don't know how to duplicate whatever you're talking about.
@Toadofsky He was using this invalid SFEN:ln1gkg2l/2s4s1/p1pp+Bpnpp/1r4p2/7P1/P8/2GPPPP1P/2S6/LN2KG+r1L_b_BPsn3p_1
(it has underscores instead of spaces)
From the main menu, you go to "Play with the computer" -> "From position".
If you enter in this invalid SFEN, there is no warning or message that the position is invalid, and it even updates the preview window. But when you try and start the game, Lishogi kicks you back out to the main screen with no message or prompt and this is what was confusing @NickAlexander
If you try to put the invalid SFEN into the "Board Editor", it does tell you that the position is invalid.
Everything works fine if you use a correct SFEN.
Thanks, I filed github.com/WandererXII/lishogi/issues/671 in case there's some way to improve the UX without tons of coding & maintenance effort.
