Chess Reader Instructions
The Chess Reader is still being developed - it works, but more games are still being added.
The BDS Software Chess Reader plays through selected chess games from the past. Click on one of the openings below and then click on a specific game from that opening's catalog of games. After the Chess Board has loaded, just repeatedly click the "Move" button to step though the game.
Center Counter Game
King's Indian Defense
The Chess Board takes a few seconds to load and the first move takes a couple of seconds after you click the button, but after that the moves are essentially instantaneous.
Since the primary purpose of the Chess Reader is to demonstrate my programming skills to potential clients, I won't apologize for the game selections - I picked what I liked and the games are predominately King's Indian Defense, English Opening, and Center Counter Games because those are the openings I play.
PGN: Not yet. The coding I use is similar to Portable Game Notation (PGN) but it includes additional html tags, has a different tag roster, and requires the move list to be continuous text without internal end-of-line characters. It is also a single-game-per-file format. pgn2bds and bds2pgn translators are in the future.
