  3. 960 Castling!

Okay one thing that hasnt been mentioned (i dont think) that took me a bit to figure out is this:

In order to castle you must Click your King and then Click Your Castle. You cant click on either side or drag like you can in any other variant. You MUST click the two pieces. And you can always castle both left and right; no matter how far or close your King is to the castle; as long as nothing is in between.

@breakreign I just drag the king on the rook. This is the default (at the bottom of 'game behaviour' in the settings).

@Vempele #10 you are right, i was not aware that the king must always be between the rooks in Fischer Random start positions.
