Tony, why not post a poll regarding these ebooks? Maybe it could get a better response from subscribers. It could even be a poll within each section (¡?) which seems to me have more visits than the General ones?

Best regards

Five is much less than 1%, surely some other subscribers have an opinion? Also, I'm curious to know the opinion of those using Mac/Linux, who make up quite a large proportion of our subscribers.

Mac and chess is a problem  Grin The best solution now is to update to 10.5 and install "Parallel desktop" - then you are able to run chessbase as well. Below 10.5 you cannot work with chessbase files but need pgn ones and it makes no difference what kind the chessbase files are. Therefore I would suggest to choose the best chessbase format and offer an additional pdf / pgn-Version (Text in pdf, game list as pgn). One can open the pdf (with the text) and replay the games with the pgn-file - this would do for me.

I would like to add my support to the new format as well.Perhaps some subscribers are not actively following theads such as these in the  Forum hence the lack of feedback.
Maybe it would be an idea to put a notice on the Chess Pub homepage to encourage a greater response.

Any other feedback?

According to your subscription, the Moscow e-book in the 1. d4 d5 section belongs to the new format and the Main Slav to the old one.

I hope this help you to clarify the differences.

Best wishes,

Fausto.


Okay thanks. Yes, the new format is better. But even the old format is infinitely superior to pdf books.

I use ChessBase Light 2007 PRO (the full version) and the new format works properly.

So not a problem for me.

I haven´t check it with ChessPrograms like Fritz and Friends.

One potential disadvantage is that the new format doesn't work in Fritz, or with any of the other engines. Is this a problem for anyone?

The new format is definitely better. You can link immediately to the game if the variation is of interest, whereas in the previous format, you would have to look for the game through a search in chesspub. The new format rocks!  Wink


Agreed!

I am more than a little confused.  Huh Can you give me an example of each? Currently I am only subscribed to the 1...e4, Nimzo and 1 d4 d5 section. So if you could give an example within those sections, I could see.

Dear Mr. Kosten,

I prefer the new format of playable e-book, with links to the actual games.

I suppose you will generate the pdf files from that playable e-book, and in fact I use ChessBase to work on my opening repertoire.

But this is just my preference as gold suscriber, if there are more feedback in the old style cbv files, it is also fine for me.

What I dislike is to have more thant 70 pdfs files, and just 40 cbv files, more of that updated in 2004.  Huh


GMTonyKosten wrote on 06/11/08 at 16:48:26:
When I introduced the new eBooks (with the links in the actual games) I did envisage being able to update these quite frequently (maybe even monthly, like the PDF eBooks), but despite my efforts to start a discussion about the relative merits of the two types of ChessBase eBooks there has been very little feedback, so I am still not sure which type is generally preferred by the subscribers! Undecided


Best wishes,

Fausto.
