Quick question (if anyone is still reading this): How can SCID be used (or can it) to develop an opening repertoire? Is there a way to enter in the moves and then practice them? Thanks in advance.

Yeah SCID can be used for this.

There is a built-in "Repertoire Editor" i think it's called.
You can also "Flag" particular games if they are in your White or Black repertoires.

Finally there is a training feature that has you guess the next move for your repertoire color.

I can't really do justice to this question in a brief comment, but hopefully this is enough to get you started on your own investigations.

Finally, look into ChessPositionTrainer which is a full featured chess repertoire editor with lots of input and training features. GL

"Millbase" available free for download.
Probably for a limited time since my bandwidth is free and probably limited..

Your videos on SCID are very interesting, but I still have one question:
What is the file size of the SCID 4 format compared with PGN or chessbase formats?

SCID4 is tiny compared to pgn

I have no idea about ChessBase b/c i have never used ChessBase and i have no desire to use ChessBase, ever.

SCID RULZ :albino:

Having CB light acitvated and SCID I have to say: Chessbase is much, much slower if your database file gets more than 3 mio games. Further merging databases to one big db needs hours, if not days, in CD and is done very fast in SCID.

There are loads of pgn-files legally and free. So converting cbh to pgn is only a serious problem if you want games with comments. This is no problem if you got them legally. Any CB program (Fritz - Chessbase) can do this job. As comments are copyrighted it's all right for me to pay.

Chess Assistant has a lousy GUI but is mighty and fast. So atm SCID is the first choice for club level amateurs. For correspondence chess the game services of a professional team is necessary. (There are more than CB and CA.)

If you doubt use a search engine. There is tremendous information in the net meanwhile.
