    Thanks. I always have problems converting a .cbv file to .pgn. You have to get rid of all the .cbv formatting or it won't work. Anyway, thanks again.

    You are welcome. Here it was easy, there was no space between white's and black's 17th move. I somehow spotted it immediately.

    the pgn displayer here is very picky, still work in progress. I usually do a little manual editing (remove comments & line breaks) before even the first try. all pgn tags, like setposition, aren't supported either.


    nice game.
