I've just noticed what looks a like a bug! If there are moves after the link, and an annotation before the next move, the annotation looks like a link too! Also, if the previous link is on two lines sometimes the bit on the 2nd line doesn't work. Sad


Making the RHS annotation part of the game much wider seems to solve this. Still, the drawback is that it takes up quite a bit of screen space.

I have seen this too, and it has annoyed me.

opened a Playable ChessPublishing.com eBook in CB12 by chance, and was surprised to see that the game links look like HTML links now

Having said that, they do look rather long and overpowering, and when there are several links in a row they take up a lot of the space and make the actual moves look rather secondary. It would be nice if I could edit the info on these somehow, and make them shorter. Does anyone know how?

I don't normally use CB12 as I prefer working in CB10, but just opened a Playable ChessPublishing.com eBook in CB12 by chance, and was surprised to see that the game links look like HTML links now, and are clickable (before you had to press Enter or Ctrl + Enter). Shocked
A big improvement! Smiley When did ChessBase change these?

There's a ton of good stuff from Ruslan in the pdf that needs to get its way into a proper format  Cheesy

All Ruslan's material is available in PGN format, remember you can download the ChessPub Guides. Wink
The QGD pdf eBook is already much too big, we would need to divide it up to make some playable eBooks.


Yes that's very true. We could start with the Tarrasch, which is sure to be more popular now  Wink

And another e-book that I think is needed is the Queen's Gambit Declined. There's not even an old style e-book available.

Thanks for your good work, it's a great site, but should also continue to move forward  Wink

Well, I think this is fine, however, as mentioned, some have not been updated for many years.

We are only updating the newer style ones, as stated several times before, with a couple of exceptions. There are currently about 30 that are updated regularly, but I am happy to do some more if there is any demand - I can update the Spanish, say?


Sorry, now I have finally understood what you mean. Well, I like any playable format, new and old, for CB, even though of course the new is much better. I prefer going over the games in CB, rather than via a PDF-file. Therefore, I'd love to see as many playable ebooks as possible. I could even help converting old ones to new. E.g. the Symmetrical English, since I am currently looking at those lines anyway.

I would greatly appreciate the Spanish being updated  Smiley

Edit: Hmm, I then found out that download via the dropdown menu actually does seem to work  Grin

Yes, I think ChessBase are making it more difficult to find, but it is still on the dropdown menu. Smiley

As I wrote before, all the newer style playable (CBV) eBooks are updated whenever the PDF eBooks are updated.
We would be happy to do more, but there is simply very little demand for them. Sad

Well, please help me out then...

Here's the Chessbase download page, where I can download Chessbase Reader:
http://www.chessbase.com/download/index.asp

There's a link there to Chessbase Light Tutorials, but not to Chessbase Light download! Now, let's say I look at the tutorial from 2007. There's an old link there to download CB Light, but what happens is that it redirects you to the CB 11 download page...

This has been discussed before on the forum, in the General Chess section I think...

Edit: Hmm, I then found out that download via the dropdown menu actually does seem to work  Grin

I don't think free Chessbase Light exists anymore.

I wouldn't suggest using it if it didn't exist! Why not look on the ChessBase downloads page, it is still there! Wink

I am looking at the King's English e-book and it seems there should be links to games, but they don't work for me. I am using Chessbase Reader. Perhaps I need a full version of Chessbase for this, which I won't get, since I use Chess Assistant.

Why not download the free ChessBase light program?

I don't think free Chessbase Light exists anymore. Chessbase Reader (that I am using) is now the free available product.
