before my seeing comments: My solution [arrived to through the 32-pixel, B&W, restartable-moving-pieces setting]: in view of the possibility\s: my solution must have a bug since it was easy and quick to find\ white’s second move is north rook to east to be guarded by bishop , to mate with north rook after black-king moves north before borth-rook check followed by black-king move to northwest [or to mate with rooks\ ], white's ffour starts

An easy Meredith. The K-flight to f4 has to be avoided, so 1. f4 which also opens the diagonal of the wB with the threat 2. Rg2(+) 3. Rh1# and 1.. Kg4 2. Rg2+ Kf5 3. Rg5# using the black self blocks.
