Just been looking at the Vega fields for the relevant information on the progress reports. I see that there is a field for ability to replay games but alas there is no moves in any of the games able to be replayed. Are the top boards using DGT boards?

No DGT boards being used this year since I'm not available to operate them and pack them up on the final day.
Eventually when someone enters all the games into a PGN, the games can be replayed.
Meanwhile, just plain tournament data available.

I've just updated the Vega webpages. Somebody else would have to do it tomorrow after the final round.
