Hi all, The AutoSave Draft feature is now disabled across the site. The decision to disable the feature was made via a poll last year. The delay in putting it in place was due to a bug/update issue. This should serve as a reminder to manually save your drafts if you wish to keep them. Thanks, The Boards Team.

    What is the best chess software to buy to use for storing games, analyising games and just for general use? It's been many years since I purchased chess software - Chessbase was what I used and it came with Fritz - but I would have no idea what is the best software to use nowadays.

    Just download the latest Stockfish as an engine and Scid vs PC as an interface.

    Both free and adequate.

    Komodo is interesting alternative engine, and Komodo 13 is free legal download also.

    I would agree with the post above, Chessbase is what most use but it is a rip off and has various bugs still which is amazing after so long on the market.

    If you dont want to use chessbase use lichess.
