Player data


From this page the player data files (background data files) can be downloaded.


The player data (background data files) considerably simplify the parts that are the most complex and error-prone of a tournament organization: inputting the player data.
Thus the required data (name, club, NRV/ELO, PID, etc.) can be found very quickly and transferred into the program.


The player data files are updated and published monthly (as well as the FIDE data).


After downloading start the installation program that unpacks the files and copies into the desired folder.
The easiest way is to specify the WinSwiss subdirectory C:\WINSWISS\PLAYERDATA (default setting).
The player data can be opened and used in the WinSwiss player / team list using <Player data> - <Open background data files>.


Please note that (for privacy reasons / DSGVO) the player data can only be provided in encrypted form for download.
If the player data is opened for the first time with Swiss-Chess (version 9.xx or higher), the data will be decrypted and can be used as before.

Swiss-Chess 9.xx also supports ELO-Rapid and ELO-Blitz in addition to the normal FIDE-ELO. As a result, however, the data format of the background files has changed because these ELO data are also included. Together with the requirements of the DSVGO, this means that the player data can only be used with program versions from 9.xx upwards.

Note:

The files (background files) contain the data of all players registered by the German Chess Federation that WinSwiss can use.
Of the German players, which are registrated by the World Chess Federation FIDE, the ELO number and the FIDE ID are also included. In addition, the data of all players registered by the FIDE, but not registered by DSB are still included.

If current DWZ values are required between the publications of the FDSB files, Swiss-Chess can easily create your own background files (see: <Function> - <Create background player data>). .
The data source used is the files published by the DSB on the Internet (DSB - DWZ-Datenbank (Link: Download).
