Well, the problem is they are not just text, but graphic of the chess board too...

hmm... from what I can see

it thinks the 1st page is the "cover".

and "the rest" is the content...? obviously there is no "the rest" perhaps that is the problem...

perhaps Personal Message POP , he has done a lot of that lately...

(try GOTO... "Cover" and you will see what I mean)

its' the same on a k3 and a k4.. testing on DX next...

Should the cover appear in the Cover View only? But not inside the document??

Just a little bit off topic: How do you make the graphic on the Cover Title for the KUAL?

Thanks a lot!

I will see if it can be put inside the game's "How to Play" page and the problem may be gone too...

Don't know how to do it yet... and more !!

Yes, I will increase the font size if possible, but need to be in one page...

However, I have found some strange behavior of the document, it is suppose to be one page - But from what I can see in Kindle, it appears as several pages. If you can go to the end of the document and then back to the first page, then you will see it appears as one page (which is what I want).

Does anyone know what is going on? My document is first edited in MS Word, then save as PDF format and then convert it to azw3 by Calibre.

Thanks for the help!
Unsurprisingly, Word to PDF to azw3 is not the ideal path to create your book. I unpacked your document and looking at the pseudo-source, it is built to do exactly what you describe : a series of paragraphs containing images that will get displayed in succeeding pages on the Kindle and the cover is truly that one single bigger composite image.

You could achieve far better control by coding the html yourself (it is easy to include images too) and by using Kindlegen to generate the book. More involving, but not that hard. you are welcome to use these sources as a start.

And also, to really digress and stay off topic, I also thought of puzzling the reader with:

C₆H₂(NO₂)₃CH₃ + 蠟 = 💣
Spoiler:
TNT + candle = bomb
Thank you google!

SCNR. Back on track now.

[EDIT] Wait, look at the thread title... so not completely off topic after all

I am open minded and welcome any suggestions...

But don't quite understanding the "PERSON & PERSON" means?

I presume you have another friend sitting next to you in a car/bus/train/boat/airplane and then you don't have a chess board at hand but a Kindle in the pocket.

Now the problem is how does the Kindle know who is who to play each turn?

I guess it just need to trust the players themselves...Or you want to play the game for both sides at the same time???

It is not a bad idea after all - In fact, you can enable the computer's chess engine at any stage to play that turn and then disable the computer's chess engine again at any time - Just to learn how to play the game I guess??

May be like this:
Start the game, user shall be asked to select game mode: Player1: Human; Player2: Human
With this basic function, I and my friend can play this game together, furthermore, I can use this software to learn chess, arrangement pieces as showed on the chess book.
(I think You should add pieces moving at the bottom of screening)
Thanks for your answer!
looking forward.....

This will be done first.

Chess Editor is not an easy job (I don't see any available at this moment), it will be done much later!

Wait for the good news....It may take some time...
