    I used to know how to do this before but I haven't used this feature for a while.

    I e-mailed my rhp games, copied and pasted them into notepad and saved the document as text, filename.pgn.

    I opened up fritz but it cannot find the pgn file. I've had trouble with rhp games before also opening them into fritz.

    Any ideas? I don't want to paste them 1 by 1.

    The file name is probably filename.pgn.txt You need to make windows show the extensions....then save the file as a txt file then rename it using windows and change the extension from txt to pgn

    You can get windows to show the extensions by bringing up a dir window clicking Tools - Folder Options - View and it should be in that list.

    I don't remeber doing that before but I have never done it with Rhp before.

    Thanks.

    I usually just copy and paste them into fritz, edit, paste game. I'm not sure how you'd go about making one big database out of a text file.

    I tried making a database, you can make a new database call it redhotpawn, then every time you paste a game into fritz save it to this database and you'll have a separate database for your RHP games, however there must be a quicker way of doing it.

    there is an easier way.

    You e-mail all your rhp games. Open you e-mail, copy all the game paste them into notepad.

    Do the file extension thing Rhpgames.pgn

    And then open up fritz or your other program and open the database. It's one big database.



    The copy and paste and add to database takes forever.

    If you set 'Save as type' to 'All Files' it should save correctly.

    Right, that sounds familiar. Cool.

    I just got CM10000 It requires a lot of juice to run which I don't posses right now.

    You know how to play unrated games on CM right? Try starting one of those and then go to file and open and pick the database.

    If not then you might have to try doing it through the database CM window.

    I don't like how the CM database is setup, to complicated so I don't use it much.

    I'm surprised to hear that anyone can email their games to themselves... I've tried using this feature 6 times in the last few months and I never received any of them.

    Spam filters, maybe?

    Is that a shot at non-subs


    Give it to me straight, don't beat around the bushes

    Do you have the right e-mail address?
