    Thanks for helping from me, too, @Kohai! I just tried again (live games) and no-go yet...

    Definitely there's something about live games.  Just tried this:

    • 08:14:27 AM: download 50 online games, get green banner. Looks good.
    • 08:14:35 AM: download them again, get green banner. This surprised me, since in the past it would not have worked.
    • Check email: received both of them at 08:14:40 and 08:15:05.
    • Download 50 live games (blitz), get green banner.
    • Check email: nothing.
    • Download online games, get green banner.
    • Check email: nothing
    • Check email: nothing.
    • Wait a while.
    • Check email: got the online games only.

    I noticed that to a few days ago, and it's sad because PGN download is a big chunk of chess.com for me. I am not able to get my PGN data when I select more than one game in game Archive, it always says it is not ready => “Failed to generate your PGN. Please wait for your other PGN requests to finish first.” This is the only message I get, but I don’t have any other requests pending??? I know now that they are supposedly working on it...

    pgn download from live blitz having issues again Cry,  it seems to be an Intermittent problem.  It worked for me a few days ago after a couple of attempts, now it seems to have stopped entirely.

    Please Chess.com fix the PGN download once and for all in all chess type games, it would be appreciated, this problem really seems to come back very often. We get the green message, but again like before no PGN!Frown

    It is down once again. Maybe we should make a new thread so that staff notice.

    I made a quick and dirty bash script to download my last 50 games, if anyone else doesn't feel like waiting until they get around to fixing it! https://gist.github.com/iskar/5283331

    It doesn't work again. I tried changing email addresses but it's the same thing. It seems that chess.com doesn't even send them out.
