I was hoping to download chess base for free. I heard somewhere that you can download it for free. Can someone give me the link?
Try this link...
Have u report me? If you have not yet, do now.
The problem is on ur security program. Thats normally, because software and virusses are alike. So if we downloaded any software, we should understand the risk.
But the link I give to u is not a virus link. I have downloaded it before.
I don't need u trust me.
Perharps someone will read ur thread and explain it to you. I will not deleted that link.
One thing u should know, I only want to help you but you being offense.
Thanks for the link.
Thought this guy is laughing but I guess some people are just like that.
The old versions of the free Chessbase Lite are available on Chessbase's own website: http://www.chessbase.com/download/download2.asp
From memory, this is the old style user interface. Not to everyone's liking, but it is free. If you only want the Chessbase Reader, that's also available for free from the same official website.
Chess Assistant also has a free "lite" version http://chessok.com/?page_id=26712
For a totally free, open source chess database, try SCID.
you are so rude trapper.
For what? I didnt say anything.
Just get chessbase 11 with mega database.
I own them both and its great for chess study and analysis.
Ok thanks cferrel!
And lollolbuddha, all I was saying before was that my security program detected unsecured programs. That's not being "rude"
Does the file work for Windows and Mac as well?
I am a fan of the old Chessbase UI, and I'm still using it instead of the stupid ribbon-based newer chessbase products.
No idea about MAC, but Chessbase Premium (registered Light) is very usable under Linux via WINE, although special tweaking is required to work properly.
chessbase is very hard to for free, unless u know someone who is willing enough to give it to u for free.
its 99 euros for a download so its not too bad and worth the cash or go to chessbaseusa.com for a package with mega database for 250 usd.
It's not free, it's as simple as that. Only option is to pay for it or do without it.
