Analysing a game

Post by FreeRepublic »

I just played a game on ICC and decided to analyze it in COW. I did so successfully. After getting the game in COW, I went to the EPD menu and exported the positions. I started analysis. I went to the EPD menu and issued the command "analyze with engine" to see where my opponent and I went wrong, I went through the moves one by one and noted when the evaluation changed greatly. So that's the process and it works.

I analyzed one game in this case. I suppose I could have done batch processing of many games. So, it is a powerful and flexible tool as it stands.

I think many players might like to analyze a single game, as above. There might be a single game in the eBook. Or their might be a single game on the clipboard. It would be nice to issue a single command to analyze game and then see the game with major turning points. lichess has this capability.

That's just a suggestion. Perhaps it could make a great product a little better!

I wasn't clear when I wrote "I started analysis." I used the "Start Engine" command visible in the analysis pane beclow the game board pane. That kick-starts your analysis engine, then you can go to the EPD menu and issue the "Analyze with Engine" command. (I don't know why one needs to issue two commands instead of one). I hope that helps you.
