Offline Version

Goproblems.com is now available as an offline version. This distribution takes the form of a collection of HTML files generated nightly from the database. A browser with Java 1.1 capabilities is required to use this package. Download either the ZIP version or the tarred and GZIP'ed one if you prefer. Then point your browser to the index.html file.

Included in this collection are the problems, the comments, and the genres. Missing are the interactive features like searching, remembering problem attempts, and adding comments and problems of your own. This website will remain the authoritative, complete version of this problem collection.

Raw SGF Files

For various reasons, people sometimes wish to download the raw SGF files for the problems on this site. Look at them in your favorite SGF editor or what you will. Please note that goproblems.com retains the copyright on these files, so please do no redistribute them without my permission.

Source Code

The source code to an old version of goproblems.com's Java applet is publicly available under the Gnu Public License. It can be downloaded from Sourceforge. Note: the current version is only available from the CVS repository, not the .tgz file I made once upon a time. If you check out the source, please accept my apology in advance for its poor quality: it was my first Java program and is rather a hack.

Current versions of the applet do not have publicly available source at this time.
