I'm not being allowed to castle

  • #1

    I'm not being allowed to castle queen- or kingside. I know the rules and in all situations where I'm being prevented I should be allowed to castle. Is there a setting or something I should be doing differently? It used to work.

    that's the trouble of playing online : )  You have to not only contend with your own understanding of chess but also programming bugs !!!

    Try posting an example game and point out the move where you wanted to castle.
  • #4
    Only premium members are allowed to castle and promote pawns. You have to be a diamond member to En Passant

    @Destroyer942 I’ve castled and en passant before I got premium. What kind of suggestion is that ?
  • #6
    @Destroyer942 Plus, it is a rule that pawns must be promoted when reached the other side.

    What is the situation in which you are not able to castle? Post a game perhaps up to the point of not being able to do so.
  • #8

    Post your situation

    It's either a strange bug or maybe you moved your K off and back to it's original square - I did that recently, forgot the moves and then wondered later (a daily game) why I couldn't castle. You say you know the rules but don't specify them: are you trying to pass the K through check while castling? That's not allowed.

    Could you post a diagram of the position?

    He has not replied in 6 days. Probably his mistake.
