Making a database of my Ficgs games

can this be done in the fritz format ? if not may I make this a suggestion for next up date Wayne

One way

Hi Wayne, one possible way already (at least for finished games) : you may download the full ficgs chess database, then filter games played by you... anyway you're right, it could be a next update ;)

I have a database of my played and ongoing games in fritz. I just download each game after a few moves and add it to the database and then keep refreshing the game each time a move is made to keep the position and my analysis current.

Good thinking Garvin, I wish I had done this from the beginning. Too late for my entire ficgs games. I try what Thibault said, sounds very time consuming tho Wayne

Inport from pgn?

Why not simply click on the computer icon in my games, click on all games, where you get all your games in pgn, copy-paste all of the games to a plain pgn text file, and import from that.

This is just a guess that seems reasonable, as I do not own Fritz, however it should be supported the way I've described it.

Yes Mladen, I guess that will work for current games.....I have all current games in a Ficgs database I created. My problem is I do not have the entire database of my games. I tried Thibault's suggestion and it worked fine. Thank you Wayne
