Invalid FEN

  • #1

    Is there a system I can use to create invalid FENs, specifically one in which there are more than 8 pawns of 1 color?

    Well, you could manually make it (look up fen on wiki it's pretty simple)

    But much easier is, (you mentioned you had winboard) in winboard go to

    Mode -> edit position

    Then rightclick on a square opens a menu of all the pieces.  When you're done

    File -> Copy Position to Clipboard

    Saves the FEN to your clipboard.  Then you can paste it when setting it up in chess.com.

    Neat, I didn't know it let you do illegal positions.
