ChessDB is a free chess database which can be used on Microsoft Windows, Linux, Apple Macs running OS X, FreeBSD, as well as most if not all modern UNIX versions. The program has translations into English, Spanish, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Serbian and Swedish. The documentation is excellent, although currently most is only in English, but this situation is changing rapidly. <br /><br />ChessDB is based very heavily on the highly successful Scid which was the premier free chess database. There are a large number of features. in ChessDB. It is not a cut-down/light/crippled (call it what you want) version of an expensive commercial product, but you get a complete fully functional program.<br /><br />With ChessDB can:<br /> * Enter games by either<br /> o Moving the pieces with a mouse.<br /> o Typing in the moves from a keyboard 1.e4 etc.<br /> o Read games from a PGN file - the standard used for chess games. (In ChessDB 3.6.13 and later, it is possible to read all the PGN files in one directory, making it quick to import a lot of games.)<br /> o Download them directly into ChessDB from The Week in Chess (TWIC).<br /> o Import games from the history of anyone on ICC - you can rapidly download the recent games played by people whose games you wish to study. (FICS support will be be introduced by the end of March 2007).<br /> o A combination of the above 6.<br /> * Annotate the games by adding<br /> o Text comments<br /> o Add standard symbols such as !! (excellent move), ?? (blunder), =+ (black as a slight advantage) etc.<br /> o Add coloured symbols to games, to indicate whatever you want. Lots of different symbols may be used, and lots of different colours<br /> o Variations showing different lines which may have been interesting.<br /> * Analyse a position with GM strength chess engines. For more information about chess engines, see<br /> * Create Tournament Crosstables.<br /> * Play against many different chess engines from very weak ones to strong chess engines such as Crafty and Toga II. However, ChessDB's roots in Scid are very much as a database more than a tool to play chess in. So ChessDB lacks some features you would want to play a decent game of chess, such as sensible time controls.<br /> * Play two chess engines each other to find the strongest. Again, to be fair, this is not one of the tasks ChessDB was designed for, so if you are organising the next chess computer world championship, we suggest you look for more appropriate software. But for the occasional game, it works okay.<br /> * Save games in either<br /> o Standard PGN format<br /> o HTML (for web pages)<br /> o LaTeX (a high quality DTP/typesetting format)<br /> * Set the pieces on the chessboard then use the Board Search tool to find games in a database which have either the<br /> o Exact position - (all pieces on the same squares)<br /> o Pawns - same material, all pawns in the same position.<br /> o Same material, all pawns on the same files<br /> o Same material and pawns, but they can be anywhere on the board<br /> * Generate a rating graph showing the rating vs time of a player. (There can be two players on the same graph)<br /> * Generate a player report, showing statistics of a single player with either the Black or White pieces.<br /> * Classify games according to self defined criteria. (For example, rook endings, games with blunder, games with isolated queens pawn etc etc)<br /> * Email games for correspondance chess, using the built in email client.<br /> * Use the Header Search tool to find games with specific data in the header, such as:<br /> o Player names<br /> o Player titles - GM, IM, FW, WGM, WFM, W<br /> o Event<br /> o Site<br /> o Round<br /> o Result<br /> o Date or range of dates.<br /> o ECO code<br /> o and many other search criteria<br /> * Answer questions like: Is it worth spending much time to study the move 4.Bd2 in the Nimzo Indian defence? The answer is it depends since GMs play 4.Bd2 in less than 0.5% of games with the Nimzo Indian, but players on ICC of about 1400 play it 40% of the time. Such data is useful.<br /> * Verify the version in use is the current one or if it old
