how do i create .pgn files on a mac?

  • 4 years ago · Quote · #1


    unfortunately, chessbase 11 isn't made for mac :( 

    for now, i am manually typing in all of my OTB tournament games into .rtf or .txt files...it kind of stinks.

    short of creating a separate partition on my HD and installing a windows OS in order to install chessbase, is there any way to create .pgn files on a mac?

    thanks in advance!

    Download stockfish. It isk available on the mac app store. It is a powerfull engine and can be used to analyze games. YOu can create, download and open pgn files. You can also export pgn files from your i device. You can also download games from chessgames.com and save them in your mac.

    It is very reliable.
