    Client-Side Viewer Updated.

    Should be very fast now. Also, you need to press 'Load Game' every time you want to view a game.

    I believe the chesschat viewer is based on LT-pgn-viewer by Lutz Tautenhahn.

    It's really a very nice piece of work and much more useful in my opinion than more popular viewers like Palview. The big plus being that the LT script reads pgn files directly, without any need to preprocess the files.

    I'm a bit surprised that STML hasn't acknowledged Lutz in this thread with a link, so here is one:

    Yes, I did switch the JS engine to Lutz's code, before it was not. I worked with Lutz to improve the speed and functionality of the CC viewer.

    Actually Lutz is also behind much of the code (and ideas) of ChessLib. (And also the PGN viewer that Lutz help me customise built specifically for ChessLib) It's all still in development till I get some more free time, which is not happening at all these days.

    Lutz never mentioned posting a link, and it never occured to me either... Thanks for posting it.

    Btw, his site is listed #1 for "PGN Viewer" so I guess he did not consider it a big deal.

    He is a good guy. I emailed him this afternoon with a suggested improvement, and he came back to me this evening (morning his time) having already implemented it!

    And you're right. His software is the freest freeware I've ever seen. No restrictions on how you use it, no restrictions on modifying the code, no requests for link backs.

    Yes, he's very quick! I can't keep up with his speed.

    Whenever a game has a castling move, I cannot view those moves after that move (including the castling move). I have tried on 3 different computers and this is the case. I have tried typing 0-0 and O-O (zero and capital letter 'o') and neither works. How do I fix it?

    Works for me too. STML, is the PGN/FEN viewer implemented through a Java applet, and if so, is 1MGM suffering from a caching problem on the client-side perhaps (i.e. maybe his cache holds an 'old' applet somehow)?

    No, it's JavaScript. It's been the same for about 5 months now so I don't think it's a caching problem.

    Ok, I have found a computer in a library at uni that seems to work no problem. However, on another computer in the same library, at my terminal in my lab, and at my home computer, I cannot view the castling move and beyond. And I have tried many times on those computers, each time, it has failed. Yet I think they all have Internet Explorer 6. Any ideas on how to get it to work?
