How to set MultiPV under Fritz?

Post by Gabor Szots » Thu May 09, 2019 8:06 am

Playing tournaments, how do you (can you at all?) set MultiPV for each participating engine individually? For example, under Arena Houdini displays its MultiPV parameter among its settings but under Fritz that parameter is not shown.

The only way I can see is by editing the corresponding .uci file. These are typically stored under C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\ChessBase\Engines.UCI\ . You'll need to add the "[Options]" section if it's not present already, followed by the MultiPV entry, e.g.

Code: Select all

[ENGINE]
Name=Stockfish 9 64 POPCNT
Author=T. Romstad, M. Costalba, J. Kiiski, G. Linscott
Filename=C:\Program Files\ChessBase\Engines.x64\sf\Stockfish 9 64 pop.exe
Priority=below normal
[OPTIONS]
MultiPV=4
Of course, you'll need to query each participating engine individually for MultiPV support and the exact name each uses for the MultiPV option.
