Syzygy 6 dtz problem

Post by Kefalonian-Greece » Tue Jun 23, 2020 4:48 pm

I installed the syzygy tablebases from here: http://oics.olympuschess.com/tracker/index.php
With 3-4-5 and 6 wdl I'm fine.
But the 6 dtz isn't read by the computer.
I've installed them on an SSD disk.
Can a friend help me?
Thank you in advance.

I put 'em all in the same directory. On linux you could scatter them all over and use symbolic links. In looking at the distributed syzygy code, you can pass tb_init a string of directories separated by ":" (colon) if you want to scatter files in different directories or on different drives...

Not clear what program/interface you are using?
