Sorry about the small diagram!

It occurred to me that Build 112, or simply a new COW Express download, might solve all problems.

I tried again. I used the Everyman Chess PGN file for David Vigorito's book Attacking Chess King's Indian Defense vol 1. It imported quickly into COW Express. I played out the start of the Mar Del Plata variation: 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 g6 3. Nc3 Bg7 4. e4 d6 5. Nf3 O-O 6. Be2 e5 7. O-O Nc6 8. d5. Here black must move his queen knight. The COW Express file shows the correct candidate 8...Ne7, plus 4 bogus candidate moves by the king knight! So the pgn is garbled somehow.

I have not had a fault-free import yet from Everyman Chess.

Modern-chess.com (MC) provides PGN files that import perfectly every time. An MC import into COW is a gem - instant productivity. (MC had a 25% off sale over Christmas and I expect one for Easter, as they did that last year.)

"I have not had a fault-free import yet from Everyman Chess."

I have to correct that. My Great Predecessors by Kasparov seems to have read in just fine. I have had trouble with the opening books from Everyman Chess.
