Do somebody know where could one find some detailed explanation (in English) about how to use the UCI-WB adapter? The zipfile has only German text help-files, and I still can't read German- imagine how narrow my weltanschauung must be...

Thanks

A quick answer quoted from a mail to make Shredder 7.04 + Bookthinker + uci2wb working. I'll put a more detailed explanation on the tournament page soon.
"
... This is how I did it:
1. Create a new folder. Mine is d:\chess\engines\shredder.
2. Copy the Shredder UCI engine into this folder and rename it to
s704.exe.
3. Copy the bookthinker.exe coming with the GUI of the Thinker engine
also to this folder and rename it to Shredder-704.exe.
4. Copy the uci2wb.exe (adapter.exe) and the uci2wb.rc (adapter.rc)
to this folder and rename them to S.exe and s.rc.
5. Create a files.txt file and write down what you have renamed to
what .
6. Edit your winboard.ini. For my installation the correct line is:
"Shredder-704 S" /fd=d:\chess\engines\shredder
/firstProtocolVersion=1
When starting the engine with winboard you will see Shredder-704 now
in the startup dialog. This will avoid confusion.
The above line is doing the following. Bookthinker will be started
and when it is out of book it will give the control to "S" what is
the uci2wb adapter.
7. Edit the file s.rc. Mine looks like this:
#############################
#
# Adapter Resource Control
#
#############################
#
# Exe-Name
exe=S704.exe
#
# Directory
dir=d:\chess\engines\shredder\
#
# Hashtable size in MB (*not* for UCI)
Hash=64
#
# Tablebase Path (*not* for UCI)
# tbpath=d:\program files\shredder5\tb
tbpath=d:\chess\tb
#
# Tablebase Cache in MB (*not* for UCI)
tbcache=2
# Style: Aggressive, Active, Normal, Solid
style=Normal
# for DeepShredder
#threads=1
#
logfile=yes
The Exe-Name is most important. Here the adapter is told what is the
name of the executable.
...
Don't forget to put that file (Thinker.dat) also in the Shredder folder."
I hope you get the idea. You will have to adjust the paths of course.
Regards
Volker
P.S.: Did you get your new password meanwhile?
