Polyglot book in Arena Empty
PostSubject: Polyglot book in Arena   Polyglot book in Arena EmptyWed Jan 24, 2024 8:28 am

Hi,

Can someone explain to me how I can have an engine use a Polyglot openingbook in Arena?
Other question: are there other GUI's that allow the use of Polyglot books?

Thanks, Jeroen

From my old website -

2. Engines that don't support Polyglot books still can play from it as Fabien's Polyglot util supports it, do as follows, create an polyglot.ini file with the following information:

[PolyGlot]
EngineDir = .
EngineCommand = sf10.exe
Book = true
BookFile = ProDeo.bin
[Engine]
Hash = 128
Threads = 1

In Arena install a new engine called sf10 but with as executable polyglot.exe [!] and Stockfish 10 will play from the ProDeo book. Ain't life beautiful at times?

You can download the polyglot util from here - https://drive.google.com/file/d/1q3a_DSrK3W5pIKQqQ1PWMrR4Y5ywFhdk/view?usp=drive_link

Is it possible to use polyglot books with Chess-System-Tal-2.00-v21 this way?
If yes, could you please explain required steps?

Doesn't seem to work. When I run polyglot.exe or install a new engine in Arena 3.5.1 using the polyglot.exe, no ini file is created. When I create it myself and add the Stockfish executable in the ini file, the engine won't run in Arena.

What am I doing wrong?


UPDATE: it does work! I forgot to specify the path where the engine executable is.

Thanks Ed!
