Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I create an opening book?
    Run the CreateBook.exe program. Specify a PGN file as an input, and specify the output directory where the Thinker.dat file (the output book file) will be created. For the Thinker engine to use the opening book, Thinker.dat should be in the same folder as the Thinker engine.
  • Where can I get an already-built opening book?
    You can try downloading these books created by Aleksandr Shvachko.
