Re: Import ebook, add ebook options are gone

Import Ebook and Add Ebook are database combining functions that are part of the power tools found in the Professional version of COW. The Express version would not have had them.

Re: Move window on upper right side of COW 2016 PRO

The Move entry area is for those who enter moves faster by touch typing. You can type in "Nf3" and press enter and it will add that move or play it if it's already a candidate move. The certainty slider is for showing how certain you are of the evaluation. For example, the Informant symbol...

Re: ETA for iOS Version?

There is no official timetable. I am aiming for Christmas 2017. Which means the mobile version is close. :) I'd originally wanted to finish the iPad version first and then turn to Android but there was more than enough interest in Android to slow down the process to get them both done at about the s...

Re: Importing PGNs on Mac Express

Yes, that requires a batch backsolve. You'll want to backsolve the ebook after importing games.

Real time backsolving works but you'd have to move up and down the tree to have it recalculate.

Re: "G" annotation missing?

I just duplicated the problem with the missing 'G' which must have happened in the last update. I'll get that on my list.

"Find Games with this Move Order" is also on my list. It works... but not quite the way it's supposed to.

Re: Backsolving Transpositions

Hey Mike, You seem to think that a "transpositional" move is different somehow from other moves. All moves are the same. There is also nothing in the system that marks a move as having been deleted. If it's been deleted, it's just as "gone" as any other move that hasn't been ente...

Re: How to sell an ebook through Bookup?

With the advent of computer engines that play like gods, a reasonably strong and conscientious chess player can certainly craft a useful and attractive ebook. Any correspondence player rated over 2100 has something to say IMHO. After a review of a new ebook, it's a relatively simple process to get i...

Re: Backsolving Transpositions

I assume you mean clearing the evaluation for the target position of the candidate move that was just deleted. There is no point in doing that as, once a candidate is deleted, the target position cannot be reached/seen by Backsolving.

Re: Bug Reports

@Bruce Is there any particular thing that gets it to freeze? Using chess engines maybe? I'm just guessing.

Re: Move order search in COW Pro 2016 for Windows

Almost all coding effort right now is going towards the Android and iPad versions.

The move order search will be improved though.
