Can you introduce "flip horizontally" option and also an option for maximum capturing for other international players

If you mean to flip the board horizontally, you can. In games you see a 'flip board' icon op the top left of the notation field. On the analysis board you can go to the menu on the bottom right, and click 'flip board' there.

I don't understand what you mean with an option for maximum capturing.

I meant "maximum capturing" shouldn't be compulsory.. So there should be an option where you can select/tick for that

You mean that it wouldn't be compulsory to play the longest capture sequence on the board? That is not an option, as "maximum capturing" in this sense is simply part of the rules for international draughts

There is a chess game called " checkers 10*10 " which has the same background as our board. It has a " flip horizontally " option which flips the main diagonal from the left to the right.. So I was just wondering if that option could be introduced here cos there are a lot of countries that play draught with the diagonal on the right side of the board instead of the conventional left side of the board. Thanks

So you mean to invert the colors of the board, as if you were playing on the white squares? It is part of the rules of international draughts that you play on the dark squares, while the long diagonal runs from bottom left to top right. This can be found in the fmjd regulations secions 2.2 and 2.4 at https://www.fmjd.org/docs/Annexes/Annex%201%20official%20FMJD%20rules%20of%20international%20draughts.doc
