    I would like to get ALL my games to build a database. However, I can only get my last 100 games by email, which would leave me with 113 games to download manually... is there another way ?

    i remember doing this a couple of years back, so this might not work anymore but:

    go to Email Games and pick a longer time period (default is 30 days) - the list of games will start from chosen date and come forward in time (till it reaches its max of 100 games) - you then do it again from the new date you need

    you can only max the days to 999 though so you will only get the ones from the last 2 and a bit years.

    [edit]i just tested this and it does still work. I also see that your account is only a year or so old so you should get all your games within a couple of emails[/edit]

    Yes, thank you, I have all my games now.

    I'll try to remember to take all my PGN from now on

    no probs - as long as you remember to do it every 2 and a bit years you will be fine - you should be wanting to update your database more regularly than that anyway i suppose (although i only ever did it once and have never gone back to update it)
