Letter #23 - 2006
Changing a Pawn to any other piece

From: Allen J
In every game I play, the Pawn always turns into a Queen whenever it reaches a8, b8, c8, d8, e8, f8, g8, or h8.
This question is related to problem #3 of mate in one move section. Is there a way to turn it into another piece besides a Queen?
I appreciate your website.
The java Chess program "Little ChessPartner" from Lokasoft is a very fine software and a formidable Chess opponent!
It features a book opening repertoire, option to play white or black, settings for levels of play (fixed time or ply depth), won't allow illegal moves, it makes and accepts the en-passant maneuver, promotion, castling, problem setup, and it's able to find mate in 5 (default level), also, recognizes check, checkmate, and stalemate.
Among his very few and insignificant limitations are: an option to draw a game, an option to take back a move (which is illegal anyway), and an option to promote a piece other than a Queen which is shown in our
mate in one, problem #3.
Also, when setting up problems and the program reads a FEN file it won't allow en-passant afterwards. This situation is reflected in our
mate in one problem #1.
Overall, Lokasoft Little ChessPartner is awesome!!
