PhotoKifu converts a set of pictures of a goban, taken during a Go game, into an SGF file and/or a game record (the so called kifu), both containing the moves of the game. It can be also used to draw the kifu of a game whose SGF file is already available.

What is new in this release:

Version 3.1:

  • The grid-detection algorithm is brand new, nearly ten times faster and much more accurate than before, even with many stones on the goban.
  • The static score-counting algorithm is brand new.
  • Added: fast adjustment of shifts of the grid through arrow keys during manual realigning.
  • Preliminary use of the new grid-detection algorithm makes manual realigning easier, within reason.
  • Improved abnormal situations management.
  • The ReadMe is now distributed as a PDF file only.
  • Bug fixed: loading SGF files was not working.

What is new in version 3.0:

  • PhotoKifu now uses OpenCV as image processing library: game analyses are nearly ten times faster.
  • Compiled for both 32-bit and 64-bit CPUs with Visual Studio Community 2015.
  • Improved stones' detection and goban tracking algorithms.
  • Added: "PhotoKifu options" tab.
  • Added: magnified view for a fast and more accurate pinpointing of the corners of the grid.
  • Selecting a cell on the right column of the list of moves will highlight the corresponding stone, selecting a cell in the left column will show the corresponding picture too.
  • Replaced some of the buttons below the mini-goban with a track bar.
  • Multiple copies of identical PK files will not be saved any more.
  • The kifu of a game will be saved in PNG format only.
  • Several bug fixings.

What is new in version 2.12:

Version 2.12 improved detection of handicap stones.

What is new in version 2.11:

Version 2.11 no longer requires the Microsoft PowerPacks v10.0.
