More than 1000 chess problems at of the different levels of complexity, beginning from the most simple! The tasks gradually become more complex. Problem book is ideal for someone who wants to learn from scratch to play chess (including children from 6 years), and for people who already have some playing experience. This book also can be useful by the advanced players, if you want to stretch a little (not overloading), the brain before the game, interviews, competitions, etc., these problems - perfect choise!

pbchess-1.2.5

Hi!

The new version - 1.2.5 of pbchess is available for testing!

See our testing page: http://forum.vlasovsoft.net/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=177

The main improvements are:

1. Game with time controls. There are several type of time controls: game time + bonus (for human and engines), move time (for engines), search depth (for engines); You can add your own time controls!
2. Puzzles statistics. The time and number of fails are collected for each solved puzzle. You can now see your statistics (total, average time, total, average fails, etc); you also can find the worst puzzle in the whole database, reset it and solve it again!
3. Various operations with moves / variants: delete moves before, delete moves after, promote variation, move variation (top, bottom, up, down), delete variation;
4. Show which turn to move and various other board settings;
5. A very comfortable layout system which allows to very quickly change visual components proportions (header, board, notation). You also can add your own layouts!
6. Engine vs engine playing mode!
7. Export current game to PGN format
8. Kindle Touch gestures improvement;
9. Pawn promotion dialog;
10. NAG initial support (show $1 as !, $2 as ?, ... etc);
11. Chess problems with multiple solutions;
12. Possibility to suspend/resume engines and to make moves instead of them.

Hey, guys. I know this is likely not the right thread to post this. I'm not computer savvy, but I can play chess (>2200 at one time). I'm looking for a pain-free way to be able to download and use a pgn chess file on my old Kindle 3.1. What I'm trying to do is study the old-fashioned way with a set and board, and use my kindle like a real book...or similar to printing a few pages of pgn text file. I'm trying to be eco-friendly. If it shows diagrams (i.e, annotated pgn games), that's even better. But my main quest is how to read pure pgn text on my Kindle. I appreciate any help. Thank you.

Hm ... Actually PGN is usual text file. You can try just rename it from file.pgn to file.txt. I think your kindle should display this text file.

What I really really want, nope not a spelling mistake but a spice girls quotation - - is --

to be able to follow previous world class games of chess.

But if I only want it - don't bother - if more than 50 people want this - then could you please consider this option.

Any way to put it on without the reconfiguring?
I try not to look under the hood.

peter12345,

Thanks for feedback!

For now we have

"Pearls from chess history, annotated in English, Italian and Spanish"

In our training materials

(http://pbchess.vlasovsoft.net/en/contents.html)

I can add more world class games. You can do it too because pbchess understands PGN format.

So, I'll try to find games and add to our training materials!
