Syzygy options for Stockfish 8 in Xboard on Mac

Postby JWILD » Mon Mar 06, 2017 4:10 pm

Hello all,
I am trying to run a match in Xboard on a Mac,between:
Stockfish 8 with opening-book and syzygy 345 and syzygy 6 wdl and dtz
vs
Stockfish 8 no-book no-tablebase .

Under common engine options and EGTB path I have: "syzygy:/Users/JWILD/Desktop/Chess/syz/s345;/Users/JWILD/Desktop/Chess/syz/s345;/Users/JWILD/Desktop/Chess/syz/wdl;/Users/JWILD/Desktop/Chess/S/dtz" --> The path where the syzygy files live.
I notice that there is no "use syzygy option in the Stockfish 8 engine options, nor a place to specify path within.
Please see attached screenshots.
Help in getting the tablebase to run in xboard with Stockfish 8 would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers,
JWILD

Hi,

None of us use a MAC and I think only one of us uses Winboard. We do have a Linux user (Adam), he is the most likely to be able to help, although he uses cutechess. There are some MAC and XBoard users on talkchess.com, that could be your best bet.
