Updating a Classic!Five years ago, when ChessBase Complete was released, it was an instant sensation. For the first time ever, a comprehensive manual for one of the most popular chess programs was available. It covered ChessBase through version 12. Since then, ChessBase has introduced three new versions and a remarkable (and free) suite of online tools for the world wide web. Many new and powerful functions have been added, all with an eye towards ease-of-use.This Supplement updates the original ChessBase Complete, and once again gives the chess community the opportunity to make the most of this remarkable software. Searches are much more powerful, analysis has been automated, and we can now take full advantage of storing and sharing our data in a âchess cloud.âWhile this Supplement should be helpful to all ChessBase users, it builds upon the original edition. If you do not already have the first edition, you may wish to consider getting it.ChessBase Complete and this Supplement should make your chess time much more productive and enjoyable and, with the software at hand, vastly accelerate your chess improvement.

Read from the Book

Introduction Just months after the publication of ChessBase Complete, ChessBase released ChessBase 13. How time flies. We now have ChessBase versions 14 and 15! Many of the new features are stunning and very valuable. Those of you who have already upgraded will want to know how best to take advantage of all these new, powerful features. Those answers are here. For those of you still back on ChessBase 12, there will two additional questions. Do I really need to upgrade? If so, should I upgrade directly to version 15? ChessBaseâs user interface and legacy functions have changed modestly, sustaining the utility of the first edition of ChessBase Complete. This supplement does not replace but rather builds upon the original book. If you are new to ChessBase, please get a copy of that book. There I explored 14 scenarios, essentially 14 chapters organized around key uses of the software. In order to make this supplement as useful as possible, I have throughout referred back to these scenarios. âSc 13, p. 237â references Scenario 13, page 237 of ChessBase Complete. You will have a comprehensive place to go for answers to your basic questions: How should I train, how should analyze, and how can I best teach the game? I am happy to report that the new versions of ChessBase actually address difficulties that users faced, most notably having to do with installing and activating the software. Do you need to upgrade from version 12, or even to buy this supplement? The answer lies within the next five sections of this book. If the new features excite you as much as they excite me, you will want to upgrade straight to ChessBase 15.Every new version of ChessBase has introduced something new and special. Rather than integrate these changes within the original scenarios, I have added five additional âsections.â Apart from some pleasing, refinements and cosmetic changes, the major addition to ChessBase 13 was its embrace of cloud computing and chess collaboration. Once again, I have tried hard to make sure that readers can actually understand and use the software without unnecessary stress. Those of you who are heavily involved in analysis will also appreciate the new Analysis jobs function, which permits to organize and even interrupt and later restart your analysis! The second and third new chapters focuses on the major additions with ChessBase 14 and 15.
