This is a list of the features of Chess PGN Master.
Autoplay lets you watch games without the need for you to move through the games yourself. The app automatically moves the pieces for you. You can set the time span between moves in the preferences. See Autoplay preferences.
You can always change the game position (e.g. by swiping to the right to move forward a couple of moves) during autoplay in order to speed up going through the games or to review previous moves. It’s also possible to select a variation during autoplay. In this case autoplay will stop at the end of the variation.
Watching live games¶
You can watch games live as they occur. Do these steps to watch current live games:
- Open http://www.theweekinchess.com/live in your web browser on your device
- Select one of the PGN links from the PGN column.
- Choose to open the link with Chess PGN Master in the following dialog.
Support for other file formats¶
If Scid on the go is installed on your device Chess PGN Master is able to directly open databases in Scid format (ending with .si4). These databases are opened read-only, i.e. it’s not possible to change and save games in this format.
CBH to PGN is able to convert most databases in ChessBase format (.cbh, no .cbv support) to PGN. When this app is installed Chess PGN Master can directly open .cbh files: internally it calls CBH to PGN to convert the database to PGN format, saves the PGN file in the pgn directory and then opens the converted PGN file.
