Popeye doesn’t accept Kangaroo(KA) for HurdleColourChanging. Gives an error message: HurdleColourChanging only allowed with certain hoppers. Same it doesn’t work for Kangaroo Lion (or Rabbit).
Works for Chinese pieces (LEO,PAO,VAO,NAO), for Lion/Bishop-Lion/Rook-Lion, for Nightrider Hopper & Nightrider Lion. I don’t see any list of allowed pieces for HurdleColourChanging property in Popeye’s manual.
a new section B is included in the tourney – there other type fairy pieces are also allowed (white and black, but not neutral and half-neutral).
The Award of both sections will be published till 30.04.2016 on KoBulChess.com
P.S. Till now 4 entries are received for Section A.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, dear Krassimir! Have a nice celebration and a strong tournament!
(the last day to submit entries to “Krassimir Gandev – 70 JT”!)
Happy birthday! Regret not having composed for it. Too busy with other things and WCCT.
