Re: How to find original games in big database

Re: How to find original games in big database

I don't know how to write scripts. I'm not a programmer. I can only do some very basic stuff with command line apps. There are also some shorter games included I would like to be able to search for. Most games are 40 ply, but some are shorter, I think because the original games where also shorter.

How to find original games in big database

I have a small database, (let's say 300000 games), with truncated games from length 40ply, with player names and game statistics. The games are from a obk book, made from a big database with about 800000 games. I converted to pgn with obk2bin. So the player names and game statics got lost in the pro...

Question about old software Chessmaster

I like the book making option of Chessmaster 9000. Chessmaster 9000 was the latest version that supports book making by importing a pgn file with games. I know Chessmaster 8000 also support obk book making from a pgn file. Are there previous versions of Chessmaster 8000 that supports this book makin...

Re: Looking for a PGN utility to remove chess960/frc games

You can also do it with SCID. You first have to make a new database in SCID format and inport the pgn database, than when finished you can export the database to a pgn database. Scid 4.7 is very fast and can handle very big databases. I use the windows version but there is also a linux version. Here...
