Subject: PGN games by ECO code

I made a site with more than a million games by ECO code - with the names of
ALL the openings.

It's great for creating free ebooks in Bookup or for use with any chess game
database. It's based on MasterChess 4000.

www.chessopeningspgn.com/chess/Openings.html

The "links" page includes pointers to the PGN specifications and other
helpful items.

What's the difference between Bookup and Masterchess 4000? I have
Bookup, is Masterchess 4000 something like the Direct Tree in Chess
Assistant, but in Bookup style? Is Masterchess 4000 any use if one
already has Bookup? I don't have a clue what Masterchess 4000 is about,
in other words. I spent a long time trying to figure that out, but
wasn't able to find any explanation of what Masterchess 4000 is.

Masterchess 4000 is a "poor man's ChessBase," a CD ROM with over a million
games with a high speed search and filtering tool and a playing program with
3D pieces and Fischer clocks. MasterChess often finds more games than
ChessBase because it uses Bookup's technology to generate all possible move
orders and then searches for them all at once. (ChessBase uses handcrafted
opening keys which miss some games.) MasterChess 4000 is $29 and more
information is at...

Bookup is a positional database (tree-shaped) but unlike a tree of games, it
allows you to instantly add new lines and comments, it detects all
transpositions instantly and automatically, and it allows you to train
yourself by playing mock games against the tree.

A video that explains how Bookup and MasterChess work together is the 7th
"Watch Video" link at...
