    Wouldn't it be a great feature to have a database of all games played on Rhp?
    A database with a search position,search by rating,search for opening feature?
    It would be great,but I guess it would occupy a lot of server/bandwith space..................however it's a wonderful utopia!

    I've been working on a stand-alone application that does just that!

    I got busy with work, but I hope to have it done at the end of january... I'll put you on the beta-tester list if you stop linking to our "Damiano's Trap" game in the forums.

    P.S. You'll need some form of windows and be able to run .net applications to use it.

    Ravello,
    That's exactly why I'm putting you on the beta-tester list.....
    I'll let you know. PM me with any feature requests.

    I've named it "RHP Player Investigator"

    Currently it will:
    1. Downoad all the games by a rhp player
    2. Compile win/loss/draw stats of a player by color and opening.

    To be added:
    1. Search for any specific move. (by player)
    2. Search for specifc series of moves (like opening)
    3. More stats...

    Will this only allow one to search for a series of moves within the set of games of a particular player, or will one be able to search the entire RHP game archive for a particular position?

    I'm building it for the purpose of researching opponents/players.
    Thus, it will only allow searching for games by a player.

    I could change it to allow searching of all games downloaded. All players in the local system. But to search all of RHP would require downloading the entire RHP datatabase. I don't think Russ would like that. That is something he will have to program/integrate with RHP.

    Note: only works with completed games so this will NOT be a tool that can help cheaters.
