if you use the one stop download area you miss about 10% of the commented games?


The one-stop download doesn't include the ChessPub Guides, which are used to make the PDF files, just the annotated games.

Has anyone else spotted this, if you use the one stop download area you miss about 10% of the commented games?

Hi

I went to the GoldPlus -> one stop download area, downloaded all the games and created a single database

16/01/2014  23:17         6,615,935 chesspuba.cbv
16/01/2014  23:17        11,921,629 chesspubb.cbv
16/01/2014  23:17         6,110,372 chesspubc.cbv
16/01/2014  23:17         7,083,828 chesspubd.cbv
16/01/2014  23:17         5,332,919 chesspube.cbv
               5 File(s)     37,064,683 bytes

This had 19,589 games (slightly less than I expected)?

So I tried downloading the games via the PGN Games Archive

16/01/2014  23:22         4,011,614 pgn_1-d4-d5.zip
16/01/2014  23:19         2,705,882 pgn_1-e4-e5.zip
16/01/2014  23:21         3,005,216 pgn_1-e4.zip
16/01/2014  23:21         2,163,072 pgn_Anti-Sicilians.zip
16/01/2014  23:22         2,525,632 pgn_d-Pawn-Specials.zip
16/01/2014  23:22         3,356,672 pgn_Daring-Defences.zip
16/01/2014  23:20         2,206,336 pgn_Dragons.zip
16/01/2014  23:22         2,591,278 pgn_Flank-Openings.zip
16/01/2014  23:19         2,589,591 pgn_French.zip
16/01/2014  23:22         2,846,240 pgn_Kings-Indian.zip
16/01/2014  23:22         2,413,082 pgn_Nimzo-Benoni.zip
16/01/2014  23:21         3,564,437 pgn_Open-Sicilians.zip
              12 File(s)     33,979,052 bytes

This totalled 21,366 games  (21,335 after de-duping in CB12 (exact match names/tournament/moves)).

It looks like the one stop download is missing some games?

Ok, I've now added all the 2011 games so the 'one stop update' is really up-to-date! Cheesy

I've just updated this with all the 2012 games, so you can download all the games in one go if you have access to 'Gold Plus'. Smiley

There is also a file containing just the 2012 update games for those who want to update their existing database more quickly.

Oh, and Happy New Year to everyone! Smiley

Great!

It still means I have to download all the guides I guess.



Yes, but as they change so often there doesn't seem to be much point adding them to the download.
Besides, it takes about two seconds to download them all from the PGN Archive.


This is fine, no problem. Just downloaded 913 guides. I don't want to miss out on something, hence my previous topic on workflow.

I've just added the last December update games, and a few stray older games that missed out, so the 'one stop update' should now be complete up till January 2011! Smiley

Please note: I used ChessBase 11 to do it this time around, which may be an improvement ... or not! Anyway, it seems to add columns for theoretical weight and 'Top Game' when it feels like it, which probably makes the downloads a bit bigger.
I removed all the team info from the main files as there is a known bug in ChessBase which messes these up. However, I did leave this info in the 2011 games download so you have the choice whether you want it or not! Undecided
Also, I used their 'improve players names' tool which, again, may or may not be a good thing. I noticed a few strange results of this myself (like the World Champion only being 2400!) but altered any mistakes that I saw.

OK, I've just updated the Gold Plus one stop download. All the 2010 update games have been added except for the December Anti-Sicilians, which I'll add when I receive it. Smiley

Immediately after putting Neil's December update online I updated the 'one click download' which now includes all the annotated games till the end of 2009. Smiley

Any chance of a single file download for games added in 2009 to simply update the one step download?

Yep, that's done too. Cheesy
