I have collected nearly all the Twixt games played on PBMserv since that system crashed a couple years ago and the game numbers started over. I merged them into a single file for Jtwixt. If you have Jtwixt (which is free) and would like the file, send me a message or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s about 600 games, of very uneven quality. In a zip file, it’s about 27 Kb. The names of the players and other header information is not provided. I also have a zipfile which contains 49 text files, each of which has several games in PBMserv form, concatenated together. The headers are included in that file, as well as text-graphics representations of the final positions. That file is about 226 Kb. You don’t need Jtwixt to view it.
I would like to do the same for Little Golem games, but unfortunately Jtwixt does not import LG text as easily as PBmserv. Also LG does not collect its games in archive format.

but wouldn’t it be nice if LG text was Jtwixt compatibel. Who do we have to ask for such a feature ? Any short cut’s ?
Me myself has made a “simple” LG to Jtwixt, converter based on the pasted clipboard copy of of the 2list of moves" info and a 4DOS batch script. You can have it if you want.

I’ve written a Ruby script that grabs a Little Golem Twixt game off the web and puts it into a Jtwixt file. Just pass the game number in as a parameter, like this:
ruby getgame.rb 135027
and it will create a Jtwixt file called game135027.tgt.
It handles the swap rule the same way as Little Golem, but does not do link crossing.
