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

Many thanks.

Header Search, 0-10 (or whatever number) Half-Moves.

So now those empty games should be in the filter.

Then Maintenance (hammer icon). Delete Filter Games.

Then Maintenance, Compact database.

I just recently downloaded Scid and i'm having trouble finding a database that I can run on my Mac 10.5.8. I run into trouble with all of the above links, any recommendation?

Hi. First let me say that your videos are excellent! Thank you for taking the time to make and post them.

I have a question regarding the use of SCID to analyze games with chess engines - in particular using the chess engine to annotate my games.

I recently downloaded SCID vs PC and installed Stockfisk. I have been testing out how to use SCID to analyze my games, following this "tutorial" ->http://blog.chess.com/delatbabel/ubuntu-linux-and-chess----using-scid-for-analysis.

I set the engine to annotate my game. The following is an example of the annotation generated:

Quote:
11...cxd4?! += D
+0.80 / +1.49
( 11...Nfxd5 12.dxc5 Nxf4 13.exf4 Nd7 14.Rac1 Rc8 15.Qa3 Nxc5 16.Rxc5 Rxc5 17.Qxc5 Qxd3 18.Qxe7 Qd5 19.b3 Rc8 20.Qe3 a6 21.Rc1 Rxc1+ 22.Qxc1 Bf6 23.h3 Be7 24.Qe3 += )


I assume that the text in red represents the engine's score of the position? If that is in fact the case, I am confused as to why there are 2 scores?

Can someone help me understand?

Thanks.

What happened to the "Best Tree Games" interface? It was perfect and now it's cluttered. And they haven't fixed the KID move order under "Play". It's still 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 g6 3. e4? d6?

FWI - Also there's a fork of SCID that has multiple improvements:

http://scidvspc.sourceforge.net/

This is a really excellent version.

SVP (can i just call it that?) was just updated with a new version. http://scidvspc.sourceforge.net/
if you click around in the "Help" files you will notice hardcoded links to that utterly brilliant beacon of western civilization known as http://katar.weebly.com/

This means SVP's version of "Help" is probably second only to Lennon and Mccartney.

I came across another free database called ICOfY Base that has over 4.5 million games in Chessbase, SCID, PGN and other formats.
