I have just downloaded Areana, I have plugged in an engine. What I want to do now is download some .abk files.
I have bought a book on the Scotch game and want to get all the classic starting positions so I don't need to set up each one.
Where can I get them from??
Thanks - Nick
Thanks NimzoRoy - it seems as though I just needed to get the PEN and put it into Areana
PGN files! (not PEN)
You can also download ChessBase 9 Lite a free DB (works by itself, not with Arena) http://www.chessbase.com/download/index.asp
BTW where did you get the idea you needed BAK files? I had to look them up myself.
