2.how can i test opening books ?
here I will now give a complete description.Step by Step with Picture.
you want to start a book tournament with 5 books
they need a seperate engine for each book.5 books is 5 engines etc etc.
So, we first create 5 engines !
for our tournament we choose: Houdini 1.5ax64
1.We now go into the folder where is our engine houdini.
2.Now we copy houdini 5 times.
3.right mouse button and copy and paste.very easy !
after each copy:4. we give an immediate trademark !!
example: 1,2,3,4,5 or a,b,c,d,e
this is very important as we will later learn more
Now we have all new engines installed in our Fritz GUI !
when installing: We give each engine an book name.we have after a nice overview !
1.go in fitz gui and klick on engine.
2.now klick on UCI Engine create.
3.klick on browse and search the folder with your Houdini Engines.
4.Now we will install very carefully in order and begin with engine Houdini "a" or "1" !!
remember them:no engine must be installed 2 times !
only one time each engine per book !!
The tournament will not start otherwise !!
5.if we have selected the engine:We give names to the book and klick ok ! very easy !
6.We repeat this until all 5 engines with his book are installed !
Step3.We begin with the tournament preparation
