nbmega.zip contains all the games from
ftp://ftp.pitt.edu/group/chess/PGN/ with about
30 000 Finnish games from
http://www.ae.tut.fi/~jarmo/shakki/suomipelit.html up to
31.12.1997. Total number of games is about 450 000. The files have
been cleaned with cbnormal.exe,
cbdedupe.exe and cbstrip.exe but unfortunately there are still
quite many duplicates.
The file is in Nicbase 3.0 format. There are two reasons for this:
There are good
tools for converting the files to other formats.
- Nicbase format takes much less diskspace than Chessbase format.
- I use Nicbase 3.0.
Newer games can be get, for example, from
