    Hi All:

    Check out my video of the chessboard capture program (CC2PGN) on YouTube. It works for all patterns of chessboards (solid colors or hatch patterns). 

    I captured about 4,000 positions in 4 hours with 100% accuracy. I will post more videos describing various features of the program in the coming weeks.

    I plan to have the release version ready in about couple of months.

    I improved the learning algorithm on 3/9/15.  It should be quicker and more accurate. Download the latest version (3.1) from

    It works and it can save time if you want a fen of a position. But the automatic detection of pieces is not thaaaat good. My experience: about 50% of the pieces are not recognised and have to be marked by hand. Still: this tool does help to generate FEN's (much) quicker.


    Thanks for that Tool
