can anyone recommend me one? I aint that good with those kinds of stuff and the database here seems shallow
Edit: Apologies, it's past my bedtime
chessbase isnt free though :(
Nvm it worked thanksss
u r welcome.:)
Caïssabase is free and not too shallow: http://caissabase.co.uk/
Size-wise maybe about one half of Chessbase's Mega database, which will cost you an arm and a leg.
Is chessbase really not free? Why am i able to use the database? I cant download the pgns but i just do them manually
I am using SCID, the software is free, there are version for Linux and Windows. For Android there is "Scid on the go", which I personally have not tested.
Now you need a file containing games. You can use the mentioned Caissabase, and you don't even have to convert it: it's available for SCID.
In order to update your database with actual games of top players you can use the pgn-files in the free archive of TWIC: theweekinchess.com/twic
You can't post in the forums yet. Play some games!
