A note on copyright I believe that the algorithm described below may be freely implemented by all GUIs, adapters and engines, including closed source ones. The array of random numbers is of course taken from the Polyglot source code but I am pretty sure that a table of random numbers cannot be covered by copyright.

Look below for some sample code which is released in the public domain. Outline A Polyglot book is a series of "entries" of 16 bytes key uint64 move uint16 weight uint16 learn uint32 All integers are stored highest byte first regardless of size The entries are ordered according to key.

Lowest key first.

Its computation is explained below. In other words it is the exclusive or of entries taken from each of the subarrays described above. The offset of the entry in RandomPiece corresponding to a piece is computed as follows.

The offsets are computed as follows. Note that these flags represent "potential future castling" as in the FEN standard even if such castling is currently not possible due to blocking pieces or enemy attacks.

In other words these flags are all true in the starting position and are only updated after the appropriate king, rook or castling moves. Note that this is different from the FEN standard.

In the FEN standard the presence of an "en passant target square" after a double pawn push is unconditional. Also note that it is irrelevant if the potential en passant capturing move is legal or not examples where it would not be legal are when the capturing pawn is pinned or when the double pawn push was a discovered check. If not then "turn" is zero.

Test data Here are some test keys. They were computed using Toga II and checked using the algorithm described above.

It seems to me that in that case one might as well delete the entry from the book. Castling moves Castling moves are represented somewhat unconventially as follows this convention is related to Chess, see below.


It should be at least one. See below.

A move with a weight of zero is deleted from the book. This is just a convention and book authors are free to set this field according to their taste as long as it is at least one. How to Make a.

BIN opening book for non programmers? Discussion of anything and everything relating to chess playing software and machines.

Thanks for any help. S Condescending "don't you know anything? So you better set that to a name that does not exist yet, or the existing book will be overwritten if you ignore a warning.

In the Common Engine options you can also specify the 'Book Depth', i. The 'Save Games to Book" action adds the currently selected games by default all games, but you can select sub-sets by text matching of the title line, or through position search to its internal buffer before saving the latter on the file, and it only clears the buffer at the start of a session.

So you can combine games from several PGN files by just repeating the procedure and ignoring the overwrite warning you get after the first time.Option ' V ' variation based on the Stockfish scores will calculate new weights.

Pre-fill learn byte - calculates the learn value of the original book This testing thing didn't work, though, as people just "bought the book" without giving me almost any feedback or lost game, exception made for my partner Deiby L. Closing remarks 1. Alternatively, if an engine does not support this feature, but it does try to read an opening books from the current directory in which the engine is started, the following trick may work.

This eliminates the need for the program to calculate the best lines during approximately the first ten moves of the game, where the positions are extremely open-ended and thus computationally expensive to evaluate. The opening book is MB sized and it was built by compiling only high-end computer games with the most powerful engines, the datas were selected using Chessbase 14 and compiled by Polyglot bit.

So to make a book with only white moves you should use a set of games all won by white. What I do for the moment is that when I detect the first move not in the book during the game, I save the position's zobrist key and fen in a JSON book the format of which is ad hoc, does not follow any standard. Cerebellum lines are by now obsolete so I've decided to get rid of them.
