Searching for GUI to display time usage coming from pgn file

Post by RubiChess » Wed Dec 05, 2018 12:47 pm

Hi.

I would like to work on time management in my engine and it would be helpful to have a tool that displays the time usage graph coming from a (cutechess-)pgn. Before I start to write one on my own: Is there any free gui/tool that can do the job? My favourite GUI Arena seems to miss that feature.

Thanks.
Andreas

If you get pgn as json you can use tcec gui web interface in your own system to make it work. It can display the graph's

xboard 4.9.1 has a setting that records time left in seconds for every move in the pgn file , use the setting "-pgnTimeLeft true"

This is not what he is looking for, Mike. He wants to check already available pgn files.

I asked HGM a few years ago about this and due to a missunderstanding he implemented '-pgnTimeLeft' the way it is now,
which is ofc still helpful, but originally I wanted it to be able to display already played pgn files.

In SCID there is a graph with score and time:

Can it read standard pgn for this, because the screenshot only shows ugly CB style pgn for time? '[%clk ...]'

You can change the regular expression to fit your needs:

Thanks! I will try it, but so far I did not find how to find that time graph option?
I downloaded Scid 4.64 and also found nothing in the help file.
