Hi! Is it possible to install some opening book (.ctg, .bin, etc.) inside engine so when I put an engine inside some GUI, it plays best opening books automaticly?

The current trend and best practice is for the opening book to be read by the GUI and not the engine. However, Stockfish 5 has the ability to read from bin. books. You can directly insert the bin book name and path into the engine parameters.

Stockfish 5

Ok, and how exactly I do that? Do I just open .exe engine window and then put .bin book in inside it and then I close engine window and that's it?

No.
- Open engine parameters for Stockfish 5.
- Inside the empty field for bin book directory
- Type or Copy/Paste the name of the bin book
- I.E. book.bin
