Strange errors

We still have some strange behaviour:
- opening an old, finished game often displays the wrong game page
- the board is (sometimes) displayed with your side on top

These errors will be corrected as soon as possible.

I already checked the database: your data are okay, don't worry, "only" the display of the games does not work.

captured pieces are no longer displayed. it's hard and takes a while to figure out who's ahead thereby altering strategy. thanks

Here I am again. I've found two more bugs with the new version:

- When I give mate an error page appears;
- There is no mail when the game finishes.

I think that you should really consider a rollback.

Found another :(

The messages to the players written on the moves don't appear.

I've found some other things, maybe they can help other players while you resolve the bugs:

- When a game ends by mate appears the message "offering draw";
- If you can't see a game enter as guest and you'll be able to see the game without problems.

I hope this will help you resolving the problems.

In my recently completed game v CCC member, his last move showed up incorrectly on my screen.

He moved his pawn to H4 but no 'trail' was evident.

I was confused as this appeared to put me in checkmate without ending the game. Putting this down to the recent problems with the website, I resigned to end the game.

Having now analysed the game to understand how I could have lost from a winning position, I note that the move was h2-h4 (allowing me to take en passant) and not h3-h4 as . This wasn't shown on the screen at the time.

I appreciate that the game is now over but I thought you would like to now.

Great website - keep up the good work.
