TB installation Q

Post by whereagles » Thu May 28, 2015 7:56 am

Hi guys,

I downloaded SF6 the other day and would like to try it out with Szygzy. Any pointers on where to get the tablebases and how to install them?

Puter is a MacBook Pro and stockfish is the AppStore standard SF6 POPCNT.

Thx all and sorry if this is totally trivial :)

That seems to have worked, thx a lot :D

I pulled down the 3-4-5-men tables and linked it to SF. I tried it out and thought there was something FISHY about it, as it evaluated a TB win as a draw. Then I realised I had been doing some moves on the board and the "draw" eval was just me doing a 3-fold repetition :)

I still have to get the hang of it, but it's nice.

Again, thanks a lot.
