Np. What I'd like to do is go through another player's history to look at the games he played several months ago (roughly 6-7 months back). I'm interested in seeing how he played then, so naturally I want to see not just his results but the openings he chose and the moves he made.
When I try and do this through his profile, by clicking on his public games and paging backward, it only allows me to go about 30 days back.
Choose a player and go to their profile page.
On the left there is a link to their public games. By default you'll get the 30 most recent games showing - with mini boards.
You can change the options for what shows on the left and click search (complete games, games against a specific player etc).
At the bottom of this page of 30 games there are links to the next page(s) of 30 games (if they exist).
Or as mrmist says use the graph on the profile page and scroll it back to where you want - when you highlight a game in the graph (by hovering your mouse pointer over it), the details of the game appear above the graph - ratings at time of game and date of last move.
All the games for all the players are there to be found.
