New features in Chessbase 12

You can use the Chessbase Cloud with more than one board.

More interesting is the DeepAnalyse feature. It looks like IDeA !

And Chessbase 12 supports now 64bit. WOW ! :smile:

A big step forward......
Parent - - By leavenfish (***) Date 2012-11-03 04:31 Edited 2012-11-03 05:59
Sorry, can you translate a bit more into English?

How does DeepAnalyse feature look like Idea?

64 bit would be nice!

Can one do a simple upgrade from CB 11 to 12.


Easily the biggest step forward for Chessbase in...well, a VERY long time. :-)

Massive step forward...but at a high price.
Parent - - By Shaun (****) Date 2012-11-03 13:13
When you discount fior '1 year Premium membership' it becomes more reasonable.


(Well thats one of my son's birthday/christmas presents...)
Parent - - By leavenfish (***) Date 2012-11-03 22:32
and of couse if you already have CB 11 and get it for the normal price of an upgrade, all the better! :grin:
Parent - By Shaun (****) Date 2012-11-04 10:05
agreed :wink:

I don't remember free membership with 11 (I bought the download version for my son - his coach is used to CB).
Parent - - By leavenfish (***) Date 2012-12-01 03:19

Perhaps this is all they mean by 'deep analysis''s an old feature...not a bad one...just not quite what I had hoped for. Oh well, my CB 12 should arrive Tuesday. I'll see then.
Parent - - By Iptables (**) Date 2012-12-01 07:10

Here you will find the CB12 manual as PDF for downloading
under *Whats new->deep analysis* you will find more

It seems like another good tool for seeding IDeA.

Chessbase + IDeA .... WOW JUST WOW :grin:

So, does anyone have any idea of just what this 'improved deep analysis' is?

The program endlessly analyzes a position and generates an analysis tree for the best candidate moves and replies. This tree changes dynamically as with time weaker variations are dropped. This represents a considerable development compared to the deep position analysis in Fritz.

doesn't tell me much. Is it something like the old version where a giant tree of analysis is displayed...constantly changing? I seem to remember that...or maybe it was MChess Pro or some other pogram.
Parent - - By leavenfish (***) Date 2012-11-24 17:14
....well, I've pre-ordered, so we will see.
Parent - - By nimzo5 (**) Date 2012-11-24 21:29
I am waiting to see what upgrade price they will offer. It does look like the most compelling CB since maybe 8?
Parent - - By leavenfish (***) Date 2012-11-25 06:45
Waiting? I'm seeing it everywhere online. I think I paid $95-$97 or some such.

I have a feeling this is the second part of what Kasparov called revolutionary as opposed to evolutionary when doing the promo for Fritz 13 and it's features...they probably clued him in as to how some of its features were being incorporated into CB 12.
Parent - - By nimzo5 (**) Date 2012-11-25 15:43
I usually buy directly from CB.
Parent - - By tigershark (**) Date 2012-12-01 10:02
I just bought the download version (much cheaper).  It's excellent - a real improvement on my old chessbase 9
Parent - By tigershark (**) Date 2012-12-01 10:51
Can someone explain whether I need both tablebases (I have) and gaviota tablebases inside Chessbase? (Chessbase 12 supports both)

I understand the Gaviota are quicker but in chessbase when you are analysing do you really need both?
Parent - - By Fulcrum2000 (****) Date 2013-01-11 20:43
Not sure if it was posted before, but seems chessbase now even keeps a changelog of the changes. wow ;-)
The fixes in the 5 updates SP12 had so far:

CB 12.5 (Spanish Release, Dutch Release, Service Pack)
  - 64Bit only: Fritz could not be loaded as default kibitzer if it was automatically selected by the program.
  - Publish games on internet didn't display umlauts correctly.
  - Publish games on internet: Optional local HTML file instead of one-click-publication to
  - Column Notation in game lists was not always displayed correctly.
  - Parts of the player search dialog in the player encyclopedia where inactive.
  - Adding a variation of a game to the repertoire could mess up the game, even if the function was cancelled.
  - Game counting in theme keys always showed 0.
  - Deletion of all text annotations added to context menu.
  - Crash in Load Next Game (F11) in broadcast. (F11 is not available in this window.)
  - Contract dialog for cloud engines smaller to save screen real estate.
  - For more than one window of a type (e.g. multiple boards), each window position is now stored individually.
  - With a second monitor on the left side of the desktop, the window position was not saved correctly.
  - On a second monitor to the left side of the desktop, background textures (e.g. wood) were drawn incorrectly.
  - Crash in Sort Database / Remove Deleted Games when Database contains HTML texts without additional files ( e.g. positions.jpgs )
  - Player encyclopedia didn't work with less then 2 GB physical RAM.
  - Both players can enter moves in shared analysis at the same time, no more analysis focus dialogs necessary.
    To analyse together, simply invite your pupil by double-clicking his/her name in the player list of the teaching room.

      Hint: Right-click arbitrary folders in Windows Explorer to add them to your "Chess" library.
  - ECO classification of database didn't write the ECO codes
  - Filtering the result list (Right-click Edit -> Filter) of an endgame similarity search did not set the move numbers for a single-click load
     (only double-click loaded the game at the filter mask position).
  - Parsing of media files in the background upon opening (faster response when working from DVD).

> (Spanish Release, Dutch Release, Service Pack)

What does it mean?
That only Spanish or Dutch releases are affected, or that it is a "spanish release + dutch release + [all languages] service pack"?
Parent - - By Fulcrum2000 (****) Date 2013-01-11 21:55
The 2nd, updates for Dutch and Spanish + some general (service pack) fixes.
Parent - - By Dikkie (*) Date 2013-01-12 12:17
Anyone updated to version 5?
It works Horrible for me. Almost everywhere by many icons it says: "no text" !!
Someone the same problem?
Parent - - By Fulcrum2000 (****) Date 2013-01-12 12:32
I use the English language there all looks ok, but if I change to Dutch I get the same 'no text'.
Seems like a CB12.5 bug!! :eek:
Parent - By Dikkie (*) Date 2013-01-12 12:55
I got the same (zelfde hier).
I put it back from dutch to english and that works perfect.
So it's "just" a language thing. :cool:
But I hope they fix it in the next version.

CB 12.6
  - Delete remaining moves always removed game result, even if used in a line.
  - Occasional exception in deep analysis.
Parent - - By leavenfish (***) Date 2013-01-19 23:23
My program still says 12.5 and 'up-to-date'.
Parent - - By Fulcrum2000 (****) Date 2013-01-20 00:43
Seems the version number was not updated as the cb12 executable itself was not changed in this update...
So the auto-updater does not find a new version. Great... :confused:
Parent - - By leavenfish (***) Date 2013-01-21 03:01
So, the new version can be found elsewhere...I've only updated via the auto-updater.
Parent - By Fulcrum2000 (****) Date 2013-01-21 09:47
Yep, can be found on (for 64-bit version)
Parent - By Fulcrum2000 (****) Date 2013-04-23 17:52

CB 12.10 (Service Pack)
  - Possible crash when closing the program.
  - Possible crash after RR on database.
  - Regression in 12.9: Sorting database for game notation didn't work.
  - Diagram in text before move produced a diagram after the move in text files.
  - Showing a variation dialog also marks the moves in the notation.
  - Variation dialogs store their position.
  - Game links in notation work like links in browsers.
  - New annotation type weblink.
  - Archives with database files larger than 2 GB.
  - Creating archives with databases including a cbtt file could fail.

Now I have a strange problem.
My fritz trainer dvd's don't play in chessbase 12 anymore after last update!!
In Chessbase 11 they do!
Parent - - By Barnard (Bronze) Date 2013-02-02 16:28
downgrade it
Parent - - By Dikkie (*) Date 2013-02-02 17:29
How do I do that? Using factory settings?
I thought I wait till others say they have the same problem.
Parent - By Barnard (Bronze) Date 2013-02-02 18:02
unistall it,and install it again from the latest executable that worked fine for you (i suposse that you save the executables,and not just 'execute' them')
Parent - - By leavenfish (***) Date 2013-02-03 06:11
Which update - the official '5' when you check from within CB 12 or the '6' someone posted about on here?
I'm at '5'. No problems.
Parent - - By Dikkie (*) Date 2013-02-03 10:32
It say's 5. A special link was sent where the 'dutch' language started working again. But now this problem comes. Probably I schould wait for the next update and till that time use Chessbase 11?!
Parent - By leavenfish (***) Date 2013-02-03 18:43
I just realize, I do not have one of the 'Power Play' DVD's so I can't speak to that. Everything else I've thron at it is working fine at '5' for me though.
Parent - - By Iptables (**) Date 2013-02-06 10:13
Parent - - By Dikkie (*) Date 2013-02-06 17:30

I re-installed it just before you posted after having contact with chessbase, but still doesn't work unfortunately.
The programmer is looking in to it. Hope to hear soon.
Parent - By jammy (***) Date 2013-02-07 11:00 Edited 2013-02-07 12:05
As someone who has never used/tried Chessbase, (I am trying to use Aquarium and I did get as far as Fritz9 with Chessbase)  my question is this. Is the very high cost of Chessbase12 really worth the outlay? What engines do you get with the programme,  or do you have to purchase them as well?

Yes the 'cloud' thing looks a great feature, however once loads of players start to use it at the same time, I think there will be problems there, as there will not be many available computers free to be able to use.

It just seems a lot of money to me.
Parent - By Dikkie (*) Date 2013-02-14 22:52
To answer my own problem: I reinstalled my laptop cause more went wrong like Windows 8 tiles not working anymore.
Probably it strangely enough had something to do with my virusscanner. Now Chessbase 12 seems to work fine :-)
Parent - - By leavenfish (***) Date 2013-02-08 00:47
I still don't know wny my 'update program' button in CB 12 says My program is up-to-date at '5'.
Parent - By Iptables (**) Date 2013-02-08 10:21 Edited 2013-02-08 10:25
With 7zip you can open the exe and see all files inside, also extract and update files by hand without install from exe.
New update should look like this:

Parent - - By Fulcrum2000 (****) Date 2013-02-21 23:36
We went to 7 today, haven't got a single crash or issue after the upgrade.

CB 12.7 (Service Pack)
  - Live broadcasts on Display the official logo and URL of the tournament in the kibitz window.
  - Possible Crash in reorganisation, fix sort order, integrity check.
  - Heumas always showed possible answer, can now be switched off with "Threats as Arrows".

Parent - - By Fulcrum2000 (****) Date 2013-03-07 19:33
And CB12 SP8. I noticed check integrity became incredibly slow. So, be careful, there might be more issues.

CB 12.8 (Service Pack)
  - Possible crash with several open boards and switching one to 3D.
  - It was possible to open a second 3D board, resulting in an empty window.
  - Remove deleted games on game files > 2GB could lead to errors.
  - Searching for games in lots of databases simultaneously could fail because of system limits on open files.
  - Regression in 12.7: Database type could not be changed any more.
  - Regression in 12.7: Cursor up/down in move statistics and database list didn't work any more.
  - Integrity check didn't find illegal moves.
  - Select an engine through cursor up/down without first clicking into the dialog.
  - Sorting database list/icons didn't work if none was selected.
  - Possible crash with download of new games.
  - Mouse wheel support in playerbase list was missing.
  - Reorganizing database could change order of tabs in database window.

The integrity check tool in CB12 SP7 had a serious flaw. It did not check the moves of individual games as was done in previous versions of CB.
Comparing integrity check run times on a database of 11,840,207 games (CPU i7-2600k @3.4ghz, OS Win 7, RAM 16gb)  :

CB11 (32 bit) - 127 min
CB12 SP7 (64 bit) - 5 min
CB12 SP8 (64 bit) - 91 min
Parent - - By Fulcrum2000 (****) Date 2013-03-08 17:23
Shouldn't they have listed it under Regression in 12.7 then?

It's finding errors now it has never found before, I'm quite sure the check integrity is not the same as it was before 12.7.
Parent - - By bnc (***) Date 2013-03-08 17:50 Edited 2013-03-08 18:18
I don't know when the integrity check problem started. SP7 was the first level of CB12 that I used and I noticed something was wrong right away. I reported the issue and Chessbase confirmed my analysis. The internal integrity check version number,v5.06, is the same as in CB11.
