I have several databases (openings) in ctg format that I use with Fritz or with Chessbase. I would like to use them with Arena, which need abk format. Is the ctg to abk conversion possible?

  • Does this answer your question? How to convert Chessbase format files to .pgn? – Ellie Dec 30 '19 at 22:52
  • I am looking for a "ctg --> abk" conversion. The question you are pointing to concerns a "ctg --> pgn" conversion. Unless there is a very easy way to convert pgn to abk, the question you point does not answer my question. – Olorin Dec 30 '19 at 23:00
  • @Phonon By the way in the link you provide, files extensions (ctb, ctg, cto) of ChessBase books are not covered (using for instance ChessBase Reader as I did). – Olorin Jan 9 '20 at 23:09

I answered this question earlier on this site. Is there some way to search? The best I could say with my research is that there is a program being written to do it but it is not out yet. And google says according to one source to do a double conversion such as with a program like fritz to change it going in and export it different coming back out.

  • There are plenty of search options; it’s actually easy yo view, say, only answers by a certain user. – D. Ben Knoble Dec 31 '19 at 4:57
  • how would you search for a specific question or topic ? – yobamamama Dec 31 '19 at 14:46
  • Depends; you can use tags and other filtering mechanisms, or just keywords. The “advanced search” button gives the best resource – D. Ben Knoble Dec 31 '19 at 14:56
  • okay. for us old dinosaurs where is this search button. i do not see anything looking like search on my screen whether button box icon or other. – yobamamama Dec 31 '19 at 15:56
  • Mobile or desktop? Near top of site on desktop: search bar. Should be. Mobile is a bit wonkier. – D. Ben Knoble Dec 31 '19 at 15:57
