Automatic generation of Informant rate symbols

Post by sagisag »

Is COW 2016 can automatically generate Informant rate symbols based on numeric assessment on the ebook?

Huh. The legacy version of COW does have a function to synchronize Informant symbols, basing them on numeric assessments. The COW 2016 version does not have this... yet. I've added it to the suggestions http://www.bookup.com/home/chess-openin ... am-status/

Thought I would use the legacy version in the meantime as a workaround to do this - synchronize Informant symbols, basing them on numeric assessments - until COW 2016 supports this. Then open the legacy version file (2MD) with COW 2016 and convert to the new file format (4MD) containing the sync'ed informant symbols.
It didn't work! Not sure where that "function" is in the legacy version.

Ran the steps:
1. Find Leaf nodes
2. Export leaf nodes to EPD
3. Analyze EPD
4. Backsolve

Only get numeric assessments, no Informant symbols
Running Build 54 Legacy Version, do I need a more current version of legacy to do this? Or running wrong steps or wrong "function" to sync informant symbols from numerics?

Respectfully reminded of suggestion by Mike to continue using both Legacy version and new COW 2016 version for some time until issues like this are settled.

Regards,

Frank

Got it to work (sort of) in Legacy version with step
4. Backsolve with "Ignore Leaf Nodes with Blank Rates" enabled
