A nifty database program that reads PGN and EPD. You can search using filters, export games etc. Crafty can be used as analysis module. The user interface seems a bit simple, but works and is easy to use.

    Deleting Twin Games. Once you flagged or marked the twin games and you are sure then use the compact database: Maintenance Window - Database operations - Compact database. I did not know this and there was nothing in the help fileYell But then I found thisWink

    Also copy the file before making any changes if your not sure. This will delete the games in the base that are marked with a -D-. The scid help file explains how to mark the games for deletion but did not explain how to actually delete them. IDK sometimes I think I am learning more about all these chess programs than I am about chess lol.

    I find the game maintenance very complicated... I still can't delete a game.

    I liked this application for my desktop. I have been able to download some pgn files and started using this to look more closely at the errors I make in my games.

    Remember to download the latest version. The one I have is 4.2.2

    I prefer the old version, the new one does come with some puzzles, but the old one is much easier to use.

    It is the most attractive and easiest to use of all the Chess Database applications I have tried. It has some great features. Takes a while to figure out - but don't they all?
