It is disappointing that this feature does not work (1/700 live and 10/50 online games show up for me), but it is understandable that there are so many games coming in every day, and the sheer volume of information would cause some issues.
However, I don't understand why all of my games played show up in the game archive, so clearly they're recorded on the server. Then why aren't they searchable? If all games are recorded, with PGN's already available, is it that difficult to sort them by moves played?
Have you tried using Game Explorer in V3? According to another thread, all you have to do is to try to look at your games in the Game Explorer using V3. They won't be there.
Then, when you go back a few minutes later--poof, they appear. Apparently, they have the software set up to go get your games once there is a query for them, in V3.
I am not making this up. It came from this thread: http://www.chess.com/forum/view/premium_members/game-explorer-not-working-for-my-games
If it does work for you, please let us know. (My own games have been available for several months. How it happened, I do not know.)
notmtwain, I'm not quiet able to follow you, what exactly should one do and where is V3?
Wow!!! This worked!!! Thanks!
Bagramian, at the bottom of the home page, there should be a link titled "Try the new Chess.com". Click that, then navigate to the Explorer. All of my games are showing up now.
V3 is the new chess.com, which has been under development for more than a year. There is a link at the bottom of every page. It says "Try the new Chess.com".
You can try out the Game Explorer and other features. According to this, you will have to try Game Explorer, look for "My Games" and then go try something else for a while before you come back to the Game Explorer and find your personal games.
Then when you are through there is a link to the "old Chess.com".
moxieman19, notmtwain, thanks for the hint.
now I'm really baffled. the old chess.com, although anything but perfect, shows MORE games than the new one. don't believe me? here are the smoking guns:
Here is proof that they work for another user Seine:
The difference is that one from V2 shows all live and online games and the other from V3 shows just live games.
If V3 shows only the online games because chess.com gives priority to first fixing the thematic games this would be great news.
But should we be so optimistic as to believe that?
You can choose what you want-- just live games or just correspondence games or both-- in a dropdown.
I was just wondering if your two pictures, one from V2 and one from V3, showed two different choices. One says "All Games" and the other says "Online and Live". I am guessing they should be equal but I am not sure.
Well, I meant to show the same things - all games.
