    There are no previous moves stored only :- This game has an incomplete game history and may not be reported correctly. What is the meaning of this?

    There was some sort of bug a month or so back, and some game histories were destroyed. You can go to site announcements and view a thread about fixing such games I believe.

    In february this year, the game database suffered a breackdown, a crash. Every game played in this moment was destroyed. Som games are from that time and are reported as "This game has an incomplete game history and may not be reported correctly".

    Another reason can be that the position is set up, like in the thematic tournaments, and therefore cannot be documented in a PGN file, thus "... incomplete game history ..."

    I might be wrong in one or both of these explanations above. I would be glad to be corrected.

    Its a game I started last week only 6 or 7 moves. Its not related to the February crash. I will look at the Announcements section.

    Its weird because the history is available on

    http://www.redhotpawn.com/gameanalysis/boardhistory.php?gameid=5226104

    but it says the pgn has an incomplete history.

    Following the advice in the announcements section :-
    http://www.redhotpawn.com/gameanalysis/gamefix.php?gameid=5226104
    Game 5226104 cannot be fixed

    This game has a complete history, but it is corrupt and now cannot be fixed.

    Correct invalid restored moves.

    Click here to try to fix this game once the incorrectly restored moves have been removed.


    Clicking on the link just goes to the front page and does nothing.
