Scid Pocket Description

Made by: Pascal Georges

ScidPocket is a chess database software. It is the port of Scid for PC (bases are compatible between PC and Pocket).

In order to run ScidPocket, you need a Pocket PC (Pocket 2002 is not supported) with an ARM processor and a VGA, or a QVGA screen (the later is not well tested). Only tested with WM5 (Dell Axim x51v), but Pocket 2003 should also work.

ScidPocket requires a lot of memory (if you want to open big databases), and it is highly recommended to close all other applications before running it.

As Scid Pocket needs latest Tcl/Tk 8.5, it is mandatory to use a version of eTcl newer than rc24.

Until now, implemented features (non exhaustive list):

- Engine analysis, with the display of up to four best lines.
- Board setup.
- Load/save of Scid bases.
- Opening books.
- Several bases can be opened with the possibility to switch between them. - Import of PGN files and export of Scid bases to PGN files.
- Game navigation with variations handling (tap and hold generates a right click in PGN window, triggering the same contextual menu as in Scid).
- Search (position, header, material & patterns). All Scid search features are available..
- Opening tree (stats related to current opened base).
- Engine tournament (several engines are available in installation package).
- Play on internet ( also known as FICS).
- Automatic game annotation by engine.
- Novag Citrine external board (trough Bluetooth).


You MUST install Scid in device (RAM), not on a removable storage like a SD Card, or it will not work (this may be fixed in the future).

Scid needs about 15 seconds to start: during this phase just be patient, and don't try to close it (it is working in the background).

Moreover, be warned that if you use a Scid database present on a SD Card, and if you turn OFF your PDA, then back ON while Scid is running, you may encounter problems (many versions of Windows Mobile "loses" file descriptors pointing to a SD Card after a suspend). So a safe place for Scid bases is also the RAM (for example the My Documents folder).

To install ScidPocket, follow those steps :
Step 1 : install Etcl (at least 1.0rc24) from Evolane (the standard edition is a good choice, but if you use the compact one, you will not get sound support), available at :

Step 2 : install the CAB file : Scid Pocket will appear in program menu / games.

In order to upgrade Scid Pocket, just repeat the last step.

@Pete : About association : it's wrote : - Launch Etcl and associate .tcl files to Etcl (menu options -> associate).

wm6, Palm Treo 700wx, Verizon. Large File, Long DL, Long Installation... all to have it give me an error message that "There is no file associated with ScidPocket"

Game looks ok but will not fit a 240x240 screen. The 'scroll bars' won't allow you to scroll up far enough to see the whole board.

I cannot believe how much more advanced this is than anything else I've seen out there for pocketpc. Better than Convekta's Pocket Champion and ChessGenius easily if you're a serious chess player. Much better access to my databases, and with multiple engines. More feature-rich than I could have imagined on a pocketpc. More like a PC-based GUI than a pocket one. Just follow the installation instructions exactly. (Good eyesight is a plus too!)
