I have to press the game number twice before I see the (download) button? Is this correct?

Re: download

Hey, Graham When you click the game number, it takes you to a page where there's a "download" link down at the bottom. When you click it, the game file will download in pgn format. ( Yes, altogether it would be two clicks. If you mistakenly click it for a third time, you'll launch a nuclear bomb! Haha! Just kidding ).

Missed the point

When I click the game number the screen appears with the game etc. but no (download) button at the bottom of the screen. I need to click the game number button again, then on the second attempt, the (download) button appears. It seems to me that the (download)button should appear on the screen when I first see the game page. Also have problems entering a move after using the (download) button! Anyone else having the same problem, or is it me and my PC! ........................ Great site, keep up the good work!

The download button should appear on the first attempt. Your situation seems an exception (having to click twice for the "download" button to appear). Check with Thibault. He might know an answer.

Hi there.

Strange problem... I may have seen that before, not sure. Maybe try a 'right click' on (download) then 'save target as'. If it doesn't work, just leave me an email specifying the software / browser you use...

(download) button

When I first press the (download) button I move to:- &...
which does not show the (download) button.

When I press the (download) button a second time it moves to :- &...
where I can now see the (download) button.
Does the above help? I was looking at game 690.

If the above does not help, could it be my IE settings. I am using IE 6 with Windows XP Home

Correction previous response

Second press of (download) button goes to:- &...

Download of games

Ok Graham. I've got it... Your navigator works well, I did not want the 'move' & 'confirm' pages too heavy, but maybe it's more logical to have the download & rss buttons at least on the 'move' page too. I'll arrange that.

(download) in Go games!

Recently started playing Go. Similar problem to (download) in chess. If I hoover over the Go (download) button, the ballon reads, "Download this game in PGN format". If I press it, it tries to download game into my chess database!
Can you help? You solved it last time, can you do it again?

(download) in Go games!

Indeed, that's a bug... It will be fixed in a minute. Thanks ;)

Note : Go games files are .SGF , you can read it with any Go interface..
(qGo, Jago ...)

Go (download) button works OK.
Many thanks again!
