Question about Group C – Protean Chess HS#3

The announcement says:
"Computer testing: Programs Popeye (condition ProteanChess) or WinChloe (condition Francfort). Please indicate which program you have used (and what version of it, if possible)"

Problem: there is a difference between ProteanChess and Francfort.
In ProteanChess, a captured pawn continues in the same direction. A captured black pawn becomes a backward-moving white pawn.
In Francfort a captured pawn becomes a pawn of the opposite colour. A captured black pawn becomes a normal white pawn.

Are both conditions ProteanChess and Francfort accepted for the tourney?

Yes, the two forms are allowed. For this reason, it is written in the announcement that the solving program must be mentioned.

I have two questions about GROUP C-Protean chess HS#3:
1) are twins allowed?
2) are more than 2 solutions permitted?

Allowed only HS#3 with exact 2 solutions (no twins!). This form would be best for eventual inclusion of problems in a tournament for solvers.
