How to Move Chess Games From FICS to Fritz

The majority of Fritz Chess program owners do not know that they can enter their games from FICS quickly and easily. Analyzing games with a strong program like Fritz is a great idea, but it is tedious work to enter each move, one at a time, especially when the game is longer than thirty moves. Instead of taking a half an hour to painstakingly enter each move, a couple of quick keystrokes can accomplish the same thing, and with greater accuracy!

Difficulty:
Moderately Easy

Instructions

    • 1

      Examine a game on FICS, and scroll through to the end of the game. At the last move, type "moves" in the main console and the entire moves list of the game will appear. Select the move list and hold "Ctrl" and "C" at the same time to copy the game.

    • 2

      Open Fritz (any version will work this way, including Chessbase programs) and select the "New Game" icon. This will reset the board to a start position and create a blank moves list window.

    • 3

      Click "Ctrl" and "V" at the same time to paste the game into the new moves window. Now you are free to analyze the game yourself with the engine on, or have Fritz auto-analyze the game for you.

Tips & Warnings

  • Your Fritz may look different than the one pictured, but these steps will work the same.
