Animated presentation of a wonderful fairy problem by Shankar Ram

shankarram(06.03.2014) Here you can see the wonderful problem by Shankar Ram published in Springaren 1985 with animated diagrams which presenting all three solutions! Very rich thematic complex with cyclic change of functions of three white and black thematic pieces, unpins, line closing and double mates!

Each diagram presents animated one of the three solutions. You can follow each solution under the diagrams.

I thank Shankar Ram for creating this nice presentation to our visitors! This is the first one of this kind published in the website.

It is really a very good presentation. But, as viewer I have no control. I would like a possibility to click on each move to show that position (like in PDB-Schwalbe).

Pausing a GIF image is a common question..
While there seems to be no universal solution, the following add-on may work if you're using google chrome.. chrome.google.com/.../...

It's supposed to pause/restart a GIF image if you click on it..

I can't say how well it works, as i use firefox..

Dear Seetharaman,
The animated solutions and active PGN diagrams are different things. To include active diagrams in the website I need special script which I am not able to create. I use one and you can see some examples in section "Compositions" > "PGN Viewer", but this one can not present fairy problems and multi variations/solutions.

If some more skilful visitor/programmer can make a script for presentations of chess problems of all kind in the website this will be great and welcome!

The animated diagrams are also not bad. Just we should selected the best timing for movements. On this problem it is 7.5 sec, but probably will be better 3.5 sec for the next presentations.
Other opinions?

NSR is proving that he is not only champion in chess composition but in computer graphics also. Excellently done!

However, I agree with Seetharaman. I am more comfortable to see each move with my control rather than being automatically controlled. Slightly difficult to follow the solution.

Here's a youtube video..
Some amount of control is possible here..
