Ivanchuk,V-Chernin,A/Lvov 1987/TD (27), which also includes the result, source


CB12 doesn't appear to include the source any more (at least it hasn't for me recently), which is good. Smiley
Also, having the number of moves and result at the beginning for shortened games is not bad, providing you only remove the remaining moves once, as otherwise it gets into a mess!

Evolution of ChessBase sub game information

For my early version of ChessBase (up till my version 7, I think) if I copied one game into another the game info would be in the form Kalegin,E-Yuferov,S/Moscow 1990, or more completely ½-½ Ivanchuk,V-Chernin,A/Lvov 1987/TD (27), which also includes the result, source and number of moves.
Then, in CB 9 (around 2008?!) the ratings suddenly 'appeared': Ivanov,A (2567)-Ehlvest,J (2627)/Stratton Mountain 2000, say. This caused me no end of hassle removing them for the eBooks!
Now, in CB 12 I see the forward slash has mysteriously disappeared, so the form is now something like Grachev,B (2680)-Khalifman,A (2651) Tyumen RUS 2012, or 1-0 (37) Gelfand,B (2590)-Ivanchuk,V (2660) USSR 1989 with the result and number of moves now in the front.
Why does this keep changing every few years?
I don't like having the result at the beginning, as it becomes confusing if you cut some moves off, and I liked the forward slash!
Is there a setting somewhere to change these things? Undecided
