Re: scid - pgn database size limitation?

Just a small annotation: like I said, you need to compile the latest sources of SCID to work with these files. The precompiled version 4.6.4 will not work correctly. But still, it's kind of strange, that your SCID database files won't exceed 2 GB in size (even with SCID vs PC). Mine is 2.4 GB withou...

Re: scid - pgn database size limitation?

I tested it with tagRemove as Juan suggested (side note: it only works in windows and not in linux via WINE) I successfully imported a 5,8 GB PGN file (6,22 million games). It only works with the latest sources of SCID. It also works with "SCID vs. PC" (tested 4.16 and 4.18). 8 GB of RAM on this mac...

I have no idea what the crash might caused. Maybe your tool messed up the PGN structure at some point due to some resource problems? I think I had some problems too when I used a small bash-script in linux to remove everything after the top-level-domain in the lichess URL. I was able to import the P...

Re: scid - pgn database size limitation?

Yes it's all a bit complicated. As far as I know, there is no tool that can handle such huge chess databases in a convenient way.

Re: scid - pgn database size limitation?

There are two things to consider: 1.) SCID databases can only hold up to 16777214 games (I think the developer of SCID mentioned somewhere, that he wants to remove this limit in future versions) 2.) there are also limitations for the PGN tags The lichess database stores the full game path in the "[S...

You get that error because the executable is compiled with a newer version of glibc/libstdc++ than yours.
You can compile opental yourself following instructions of my earlier post.

Kind regards,

Antonio
that is quite possible because I used ubuntu 17.10 with the latest libraries.

Re: OpenTal 1.0 in a linux operating system

in main.cpp add "name" in line 39 between "id" and the engines name. like this:

Code: Select all

printf("id name OpenTal 1.1"   [...]
the UCI protocol expects the ID string to look like this.
