No, you have to create the UCI file manually. That is what I did and it will work in Chessbase.

The file goes in the 'AppData\Roaming\ChessBase\Engines.uci' directory.

The contents should look something like this and have the name 'Houdidit 6.03 Pro x64-pext.uci' :

Code: Select all

[ENGINE]
Name=Houdidit 6.03 Pro 
Author=MikeB
Filename=D:\ChessEngines\Houdidit\houdidit-bmi2.exe
[OPTIONS]
Threads=8
SyzygyPath=D:\SyzygyBases\DTZ_7;D:\SyzygyBases\WDL_7;D:\SyzygyBases\DTZ_6;D:\SyzygyBases\WDL_6;D:\SyzygyBases\DTZ_345;D:\SyzygyBases\WDL_345
