Description Quim Gil (reporter) 2011-09-20 22:13:44 UTC
SOFTWARE VERSION: 
master

EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM: 
1. Launch an "atomic" seek from a PC. 

EXPECTED OUTCOME: 
Miniature can't play Atomic chess, therefore atomic seeks are not listed in
SeekGame.

ACTUAL OUTCOME: 
Atomic seeks appear in SeekGame and the UI refers to them as "Standard". No
wonder, since that string is hardcoded.

REPRODUCIBILITY: 
always

Logs:

FICS: "ManhProj (++++) seeking 3 0 unrated atomic f ("play 179" to respond)" 
(...)
FICS: "Creating: ManhProj (++++) GuestJQJN (++++) unrated atomic 3 0" 
FICS: "{Game 124 (ManhProj vs. GuestJQJN) Creating unrated atomic match.}"
Comment 2 Quim Gil (reporter) 2011-09-21 01:00:49 UTC
As a comment aside, it might be that Miniature CAN play Atomic Chess on FICS,
since the piece selection is the same than in standard chess and all the rest
is drawn or validated by the FICS server...

Same for suicide chess, but I'm digressing now.  ;)
