Hello Greg Miller and Others,

Would a time limit per move be an alternative option?

I must be really tired, searching for a best move for White :( After some redicilus moves such as 1.Ne4 Rc1+ 2.Kg2 Nxd6 I just figured out that this just leads to a mate in four for black and nothing for white to gain in anyway.

I've set mine to a wood scheme:

dark-squares: 9A9449

It might be that you have to add a # in front of the color, ex: #EDD39E
