Inverted boards

Some players saw inverted boards (with themselves on the top side).
This error is now resolved.


This problem showed up, if you had set the board orientation (on your preferences page) to "Moving player". Since the program for displaying the chess board used the color of the moving player of the previous game (instead of the current game) the orientation had been calculated wrongly.


Several players reported this error - thank you all. Especially the detailed analysis of Patrick McCartney made localizing this bug very easy.

Hello, I'm sorry to say but I had just 2 games with the wrong orientation. 4sep 04:15gmt

Thanks. My trivial correction wasn't trivial enough - for me... :-(

But now it really should work.

There still appear to be problems with this feature. When I make a move in game HCL-B2872-5 then click the "preview" button, the orientation of the board is incorrect. When I click the "enter new" button, the board is returned to the correct orientation.
