Promoting pawn to other than a queen

Post by SilentKnight »

PROMOTING PAWN TO A KNIGHT

(Windows 10, build 60)

I am entering a game and the move involves a promotion of a pawn to a knight. The system automatically promotes to a Queen. How do I promote to a knight?

thanks

To promote a pawn to a piece other than a queen, type the move into the move entry area. For example, type:

exf8=N

Then press Enter.

Thank you ... any chance of a pop-up option to select from in the future to keep consistency with GUI approach? Entering a character base move is not very intuitive when your main mode is GUI. While I am sure the instructions on how to enter the move using characters is available I could not find it, but I do admit to having a 'boy' look :).

Cheers

Yes, this will definitely be fixed.

The latest versions should have this fixed.
