- - By Gizchehs Defender (***) Date 2012-05-01 13:19 Edited 2012-05-01 13:21
People here are talking a lot about ICCF [ International Corresponda{e}nce Chess Federation ] and WBCCF or something like that ( I'm sorry folks :red: ), and so they give lists of games that have been Played, and so I want to look upon those Games ( hence get the fun out of it :razz: ).

So now I thought '' Why don't go through those WoUni's via WinBoard by Pasting or Passing the PGN onto WinBoard? ''

>    So I tried and it didn't Worked    >


....

Help !!

It's very easy, as Winboard accepts non-standard PGNs, all you need to do is paste the moves and you can see the games.

For WBCCC 2012 games it's like this, go to a game:

http://rybkaforum.net/cgi-bin/rybkaforum/topic_show.pl?pid=407525#pid407525

At the bottom of the message you'll see something like this:

[WhiteTime "15 days, 2 hours, 17 minutes"]
[BlackTime "9 days, 20 hours, 7 minutes"]
[Moves "1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.Nd2 dxe4 4.Nxe4 Nd7 5.Nf3 Ngf6 6.Nc3 Nb6 7.a4 Nbd5 8.Nxd5 Nxd5 9.Bd3 Bg4 10.h3 Bxf3 11.Qxf3 a5 12.Bg5 Qc7 13.O-O e6 14.c4 Nb4 15.Rad1 Nxd3 16.Rxd3 Bd6 17.d5 cxd5 18.cxd5 e5 19.Rb3 O-O 20.Rc1 Qd7 21.Rb5 Rfc8 22.Qd1 h6 23.Bd2 Rxc1 24.Bxc1 Rd8 25.Rxa5 Rc8 26.Rb5 Rc4 27.Be3 f5 28.Qb3 Rc7 29.Rb6 Kh8 30.Bd2 Kh7 31.g3 h5 32.Qf3 g6 33.a5 e4 34.Qb3 h4 35.Bf4 Bxf4 36.gxf4 Qf7 37.Re6 Rd7 38.Qc4 Re7 39.Kg2"]
Result: BlackResign

Now, that's a non-complaint PGN and Winboard will not accept it, because the moves are as comments (this is a fault of the server). What you need to do is copy the moves that are withing quotes, this part:

1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.Nd2 dxe4 4.Nxe4 Nd7 5.Nf3 Ngf6 6.Nc3 Nb6 7.a4 Nbd5 8.Nxd5 Nxd5 9.Bd3 Bg4 10.h3 Bxf3 11.Qxf3 a5 12.Bg5 Qc7 13.O-O e6 14.c4 Nb4 15.Rad1 Nxd3 16.Rxd3 Bd6 17.d5 cxd5 18.cxd5 e5 19.Rb3 O-O 20.Rc1 Qd7 21.Rb5 Rfc8 22.Qd1 h6 23.Bd2 Rxc1 24.Bxc1 Rd8 25.Rxa5 Rc8 26.Rb5 Rc4 27.Be3 f5 28.Qb3 Rc7 29.Rb6 Kh8 30.Bd2 Kh7 31.g3 h5 32.Qf3 g6 33.a5 e4 34.Qb3 h4 35.Bf4 Bxf4 36.gxf4 Qf7 37.Re6 Rd7 38.Qc4 Re7 39.Kg2

Now, go into Winboard, click File > Paste Game From Clipboard, and it pastes.

For games of the WBCCC 2011, you can outright download the PGN of the games:

http://www.chesscafe.com/zip/WBCCC2011.pgn

And open it directly with Winboard, which is more convenient than copy-pasting.

I guess ICCF should have a similar archive, but if not, when in doubt, just copy-paste the moves.

Yep, Uly, now that you gave me this link: http://rybkaforum.net/cgi-bin/rybkaforum/topic_show.pl?pid=407525#pid407525 I remember it myself again.

As I am playing you, and as I have already gained the information, indirectly and directly, that you cannot be a Bad Correspondance ChessPlayer, I want from you 8 Games that you have played.
4 Games against a Chess Engine, and ofcourse, 4 Games against People via Correspondance.

First you have to answer yourself the Question: '' Is it Responsible from my side to give him those games just like that '', because, yes, I want to learn.
However, now that I have already made you aroused, you can still give me the Games even though you don't think that it is Responsible, but I just won't be that much into Learning mode.
You can also say '' Look, this was a good move of me!.. because....... '' etcetera.
Things and Preferbly ( ofcourse ) whole Games that you think I can learn from you.

Furthermore, I have some Demands for your Games:

- No Closed and Semi-Closed Positions. I am already good ( enough ) at those Positions I think. Ofcourse, it can be better as I have not played so many Closed Position games as others. and Semi-Closed is just... wel its the one or the other in this Case, and so I want Open Position games. Tactical Games! My Weakness! Tactics!

- The game is not won, nor lost, nor Remised due to a Blooper/Bloopers, nor a Mistake/Mistakes by either Side.
Innacuracies. Preferably one Innacuracy ofcourse, but this might surely be impossible.

Give your Pride, but also your opponents' Pride.

For the Chess Engine Games it is the same.

[b]{ Games of Immortality }

lol te b stands there :razz:

Erm, why are you demanding games from me? All the games I've played on the forum can easily be found by everyone.

Here's a post with links to my early games:

http://rybkaforum.net/cgi-bin/rybkaforum/topic_show.pl?pid=284628#pid284628

My recent games are at the first pages of this subforum:

http://rybkaforum.net/cgi-bin/rybkaforum/board_show.pl?bid=19;pg=1

And my WBCCC games can be downloaded at this link:

http://www.chesscafe.com/zip/WBCCC2011.pgn
(Look for a player named Uly)

No idea which one would be useful to you or why you have a special interest in me.

You!  Hands up!  I demand your games!  :evil:
Parent - - By Uly (Gold) Date 2012-05-07 02:16
Sure Nelson, I think I have played about one hundred new engine-engine games since the last batch I sent you. I'm sure 100 games are just a grain of sand in a galaxy but if you want them, I'll send them.
Parent - - By Nelson Hernandez (Gold) Date 2012-05-07 03:08
I was merely doing a parody.  I always accept new games but I wouldn't ask you in the manner of a hold-up man!
Parent - By Uly (Gold) Date 2012-05-07 09:07
Ya, I got it, but still thought it was fun if you could also get games like that :lol:
Parent - - By Gizchehs Defender (***) Date 2012-05-11 11:58
It's explained above.

1: ICCF.

2: I am playing you.

And, when I look over games at ICCF, why not looking over the Games with the one I am playing with?

As for now, I will set: Parameter\Responsible\False. because I have yet not a Clear answer from you.

And also, I wish you to be one of my Friends over here.
Parent - - By Uly (Gold) Date 2012-05-12 01:37
I don't have any completed games at ICCF.
Parent - By Gizchehs Defender (***) Date 2012-05-24 06:18
oh, you looked to me like you basically are a Real ICCF man.
But heck, you said to not prefering ICCF due to an UserName [first name, last name] Conflict anyway, which I can understand as I don't like over-Consistence myself.

I remember that when I Googled for PGN databases , I ended up on the ICCF website. I loaded a zipped file caller 'archive2010' there, which contained over 41,000 games. (They had other years too; I just picked one.) I now use that file (which after unzipping gave a normal PGN file) routinely to test WinBoard's database functionality (loading speed, position search).

Ok Muller Man, enough and enough to see so I see :smile:

Thank You.
