Fritz 13 help

    I recently bought a copy of Fritz 13 that's working fine. But I've got a few queries:

    • I don't seem to be able to find a way to enter my own OTB games into it for analysis. That's particularly the reason why I bought it.
    • There's a coach speaking (I assume it's the coach) in some language I can't understand. What I understand is just something like "HA!"; nothing more than that. It'd be good if I could change the language. 
    • Fritz 13 is just too easy to beat. I mean, I'm rated like around 1500 Correspondence at Chess.com but it's too easy to draw with it or beat it. Is there some difficulty setting for it? Does it have something with the choice between Beginner, Hobby player and Club player at the start?
    • I can't access the database.

    Any help would be appreciated. I'd really like to make the best out of this engine I've purchased. Thanks.

    Pfren, why are you so arrogant? Is it that difficult to be helpful? You are an IM, what do you have to prove by being so unpleasant? Why not say " Fritz13 can play at around 2700, so you need to set the difficulty. Check the help files"

    My chessbase was originally in German, I was able to change it to english, you can find it easily from the menu - options - language [though don't know what will they be named in German].

    Database is there in chessbase not fritz. Fritz is an engine.

    strategicPlay the voice you hear while playing Fritz is German. If you can easily read the help files. You can also add and Play analize with uci chess engines such as stochfish or hodini both will play you above 2500+. If you have any questions message me with examples or go to chessbases web page and view the tutorial for fritz 12 it should help. You can get many very good free uci chess engines on the chess.com web site under downloads

    I forgot to say fritz 13 plays by default at your rating level example if you are 1500 it attemps to play at that level. The uci chess engines play at full power

    I don't understand what is meant by F13 plays at your rating by default. Isn't there preset/doesn't it ask you what sort of game you want for each new game?

    I would like to play it at what it thinks my rating is, but I have no idea how.

    Read the instruction. Just as a 2600-2700 player can play at a lesser level so can fritz. you log in with a certain username and it playes at the level of that username. If your friend plays using your username if he was say 500 points lower than you the computer(Fritz) will play at your level  for as long as it takes to get the average down. Computer can be program to do this.

    I use Fritz 13 and have found it to be easily customizable for whatever I want to do with it.

    To enter your own games (from OTB notation), simply click "New Game" at the top menu bar, then Engine->Switch off engine (or Ctrl-Shift-M).  Then you can enter moves you made and the Notation will be built up in algebraic.  You can then save the game and replay it or analyze it (Home->Infinite Analysis), annotate it using the Insert menu bar choices, and insert variation lines.

    The engine can be configured to work any way you want.  It will run at full strength for analysis, or you can "dumb it down" to a given Elo rating level, or tell it to match your own estimated Elo rating as it plays against you and adjusts itself.

    All of the coaching stuff can be toggled on/off from the menu.  Pressing the "?" in the top right corner or pressing F1 will bring up the help menu.
