Final Gen

Sherwood, Russell  Saturday, August 11, 2018

Recently the availability of 7 piece tablebases was discussed. These are VERY large and probably beyond the capacity of typical users to download.


For specific positions an older piece of Software – “Final Gen” is still around. This allows the creation of tablebases for a specific position to be generated. Be aware this can take many days to complete but does allow a definitive view to be taken on a specific position. Another alternative, which could be found in some of the engines mentioned in Cutting Edge is a combination of brute force and wide (so called CC analysis ) mode. This allows the engine to be set to fully analyse a specific position. This is not 100% effective but may be a method for those who wish to examine this approach.
