After the file is downloaded, double-click on it to open it in the desktop program.
At this time, it is not possible to add shared decks directly to your AnkiWeb account - they need to be added from the desktop then synchronized to AnkiWeb.
I like that it didn't try to do too much of fancy stuff like trying to provide an option to make moves graphically. All it requires form me is to get FEN for the position I need and I'm good to go. Very easy to create custom cards.
I am using the modified version of this deck that has been made available by another user. Thanks to you both. :)
I really appreciate the author's work.
"7k/8/4(...)1/8/5PK1/8/8/8" - black to play and draw here it is shown from the white perspective. Reverse the text like this:
"8/8/8/1KP5/8/1)...(4/8/k7" - will show with black on the bottom of the board.
Copy and paste the original FEN string here: http://www.textreverse.com/
**If you use the above example to test - please remember to remove the quotes from the FEN string.
I have been using this tool since 2015 and it has been a good helper, memory is so important in everything. Thanks.
Nice graphics and quite flexible. White at the bottom is annoying though. The only
way to take care of this is to change lower-/uppercase, so for the starting position RNBQKBNR/PPPPPPPP/8/8/8/8/pppppppp/rnbqkbnr instead
of rnbqkbnr/pppppppp/8/8/8/8/PPPPPPPP/RNBQKBNR. Any other ideas?
This is a great little design. It offers an excellent way to keep those troublesome positions in your mind without having to import graphics.
One thing that would make it better for me is the ability to show Black on the bottom.
