 Post subject: Scid issues (ELO, "date" tab)
PostPosted: Fri Dec 30, 2011 9:44 pm 
I started to use Scid few days ago. Slowly learning it. It's a shame it doesn't have a big manual in ebook format (.pdf) Or is there??

#1 Issue:
So I have 2 databases each consists of ~ 1,000 games.
Of those games 30 to 50% games have in "Date" tab also month & day.

I need only year to show (no month &/ day).
The only way I know how to remove this is:
  1. Load 1st game which have month & day
  2. Edit it with "Save: Replace Game" command and manually delete month &/ day.
  3. Go to next game which has month / day.

I already did this with 3rd database (also ~1,000 games) - very boring & time-consuming!! :cursing:

Also checked "Help" (F1) didn't find anything useful...

There must be a way how to do this fast and easy.
So how can I automatically remove month & day of each game??

#2 Issue:

I created database named Latvian Gambit which consists of 951 games.
But there were no ELO ratings!
I managed to fix this by adding SCID ratings file
Note: The file is a much larger version of which has the same 140,000+ player names but also has the Elo rating history of each player.

You will only need if you want to use the Add Elo ratings maintenance command in Scid. If not, don't waste your time downloading it.

So I did that Elo ratings command. However, only ~65-75% of games have ratings. Did I do something wrong? I need to figure out how to get "true" ratings for remaining games without elo!?

How? Any suggestions?
