Well there is a difference in the size of the exe's 2.88MB (Fritz 15) versus 3.02MB (Fritz 16)

You must rename .dll file if you want Fritz 16 to probe Nalimov format

C:\Program Files\Common Files\ChessBase\Endgames

I use TBAccess.dl_).dll - now nalimov work with fritz 16.

Who cares about Nalimov, which occupy 1.2 TB space. I am more interested if Fritz 16 support syzygy tbs, which occupy only 150 GB space...

I agree with your point. Nalimov 5-men is better than nothing for Fritz 16 engine.

Currently running a 100 game 5 minute match between Fritz 15 & 16. At the time of this post I am 26 games in. +4 =18 -4 Appears to be not difference in strength.

Ted: some implies 5 min games without increment is futile.

3+2 is better imo. 3+2 don't need so many games that 5m need.

5 minutes or 3 2? I will see a woman (usually) take her shoes off and weigh herself and this always makes me laugh because really what difference does it make? I weigh myself with clothes and my shoes and I do this every time so I am getting a pretty good indicator of what my weight is.

5 0 or 3 2 matches will give you a good indicator of the results. You are not going to see one engine over the other all of sudden get a 40-50% increase in strength from it.
