SuperAndernach: A piece [other than a King] changes color upon moving.

Isardam: The moves causing a Madrasi – like paralysis are illegal. This holds right up to the capture of the mated King. This is standard form of Isardam.

    I think 1….Rh2-h6=bR is not a check. If so it cannot be played !

    In Part (a), is it mate after 3….Kxe4? It seems that black has the move 4.Kd2.

    I think everything is OK.
    In initial position move 1…Rc4xc2=bR?? is impossible thanks for illegal paralysis with wRh2. So 1…Rh2-h6=bR+ is a check.
    And after 3…Ke5xe4# move 4.Kd3-d2?? is impossible: 4…Rd6xd2=bR without paralysis.
