MyChessViewer 2.2 PGN Viewer

, par chessnaute-master

This is my Chess PGN applet viewer - hence the name - "MyChessViewer". It plays
over PGN games in your browser. It is meant for website developers that need a
nice viewer and wish to conserve web space/bandwidth.

You may use MyChessViewer freely. All I ask is that you credit

Here are some features :
- Views games in long and short PGN compliant Algebraic notation.
- Game files can be zipped or uncompressed on the server. The zip compression option will save nicely on disk space and download bandwidth. The applet will detect the zip compression on the fly.
- Animates moves in an attractive display.
- Clicking on any move in the score sheet immediatedly displays that position.
- Displays PGN comments.
- Supports Recursive Annotated Variations (RAVS).
- Will display one game or store many games in a convenient list for user selection.
- Handles game fragments via the FEN tag. This is very useful for tactics training, engame analysis, middlegame instruction, etc. See the puzzle.htm example.
- if "puzzlemode" is "on" the applet will hide the answer (the scoresheet) until the user presses the ShowAnswer button or the ">" (next move) button. See puzzle.htm for an example.

To use :
Simply copy the contents of this zip file into a directory.
There are three examples : Polgar-Anand.htm, hoogovens.htm, and puzzle.htm.
View these files for a simple example on how to use the applet. Their repective pgn files are Polgar-Anand.pgn, a nicely annotated game by FIDE World Champion, Alexander Khalifman, (a zipped PGN game file) and QueenSacks.pgn. You do not need to unzip (unless you want to look at the unzipped contents for yourself).

Requirements :
The client browswer must support Java 1.1. This includes the Internet Explorer 4.x and higher, and Netscape 4.06 and higher. The HTML sample files include a Java Script that checks for this requirement and refers the user to UpgradeBrowser.htm (also included) if needed.

Je l’utilise ici pour présenter les parties de Bobby Fischer. Mon souci c’est que l’on ne peut pas réduire la taille de la fenêtre, mais Michael prépare une version Flash adaptable. Finalement j’ai élargi le template, et modifié les couleurs.
