For the animation purposes the initial game array position is shown on the diagram. The task is to find the final positions (adding pieces to the empty board) for two solutions. The animation of the solutions can show you what are the final positions and how to get them.

A battery check, plus two checks from a PointReflection move. The wK attacks as Q, the wP attacks as K, the wS attacks normally, and the bK is mated because it moves as P. It is strange that in proof games with PointReflection, all units start by moving normally except for the K and Q!

I suspect that this might be interesting if I understood it.
How can this be a proof game in >0 moves if the diagram position is the game array?
What’s the meaning of “Add pieces (ending with triple check mate)”
