They seem to be gaining in popularity. I offer a suggestion. After playing three bullet games I feel an improvement would be to highlight the move made for easier recognition. Other game servers have this feature. Is it difficult to implement Thibault ?

You mean on the board? I must say I don't like this feature much...

It is true that the only way (until there) is to scroll to see all moves in text or to "mouse-over" the last move played by your opponent to see the last 10 moves played if you use the fast moves process. I'd like to find another way to display the move before but some screens are quite small.

Thibault, I do not follow you, and perhaps you dont understand my intent.
I am proposing that the last shot made on the board be highlighted. Example: white play's nb3. when that move is entered I would like to see the knight on c3 highlighted so that it can be quickly spotted. I think it very fair and useful Wayne

That's what I thought but again I don't like much to see several colored squares on the board. Do other players would like to see this feature?

Anyway, this could be an option.

It could be offered as a preference option.

No, only one square would be highlighted, the current moved piece in it's new destination. This is the way I have seen it done on other site's, It makes playing blitz more enjoyable as your opponents move is quickly recognized ON the board.
I really like it. It wiuld be a very nice option. Everyone will use it once they see it :)

I agree with you Wayne.
So option seems a good solution.

it would help if the animation speed was a little slower

Hmm, actually there's no "animation", the piece disappears from a square, appears to another... dunno if I can change that without a flash anim.

About the highlighted square, this is on the wishlist, sorry for the delay :/
