I finished a little python script for converting complex games to Latex (using mostly skak). Maybe you want to try it :-)

This looks interesting. Is it possible to get a Windows exe file for the program? Thank you.

Well, it is written in Python, so although you may be able to create an .exe with some tricks, you usually want to run it with the Python interpreter.
See https://docs.python.org/3/using/windows.html

In Linux you browse to the script folder (via "cd C:\Script" for instance in Windows) and execute it via "python3 pgn2latex.py" (in Windows maybe "py pgn2latex.py")

I fixed some bugs in that script, so I'll attach a new version.

Here's a version numbering variations 1) 2) 2a) 2b) and so on. I'm not sure which behaviour is intended for numbering deep variations: 2aa) or 2a1)?

Btw., as you will have noticed, the code is pretty ugly :-) . Still, it works.

Thank you Felix for the new version. The output from this script is much nicer than from the Aquarium print game option.

I see your point about deep variations as it could get confusing but either version is understandable to me as a user.

Glad you like it :-)
Btw., don't forget to set "copy only moves and text comments" in the Aquarium options (pgn options there). Otherwise coloured moved will appear as strange strings in the text.
