I was sent a database of over 3000 mate-in-2 puzzles; however, most of them (almost 2200 of them) only have the first move provided as a solution. I am hoping that I will not have to go back and add the variations for the second move manually. Is there a way to have ChessBase add the rest of the analysis? I was hoping the Tactical Analysis would do this, but it just checks the first move and says "yep, it is the best one" without providing the variations.
The Deep Analysis option does this, however, it takes forever, and you have to do each game/problem one at a time. Sorry to say, that it probably is not worth it, but it does add in most, if not all, the subvariations. Sorry, I do not have better news, but I do not think there is an easy way for you.
This is just for reference on how to use ChessBase Tactical Analysis on a large number of games, but here is that.
First, open the database. I am not sure how well this will work with 3000 games, so you may have to break them up by 100's, but you can test that yourself.
Now, once the database is open, click on the first game you want, and hold the Shift key down while selecting the last game you want. That should highlight many games.
Right click on them, and select "Tactical Analysis". Once the box comes up, set the following: Time for 1 second, Coarse, Store Evaluations, and deselect "Erase old annotations" and training. "Replace" should be selected. Replace saves the new analysis.
