John Kominek found an error in stat file kbpkn.tbs.
He posted his logic and the correct file here
I updated the all-5-men-32p-tbs.zip
archive on this site with the corrected file. Thanks, John!
One year ago I submitted our links to the eMule Content Database
Now Nalimov 6-men tablebases
is second most popular release,
next only to eMule itself. I suspect this is just because of enormous number of files we share.
Still this is encouraging!
A new handy program for testing tablebase integrity is available!
Check this thread
for details and download link.
Thanks to Michael Metlov and Victor Zakharov!
This site moved to a new server, please update your bookmarks!
We are starting to share Scorpio bitbases
on eD2K/KAD network for those who have problems downloading them elsewhere.
All pawnless 6-piece tablebases have 10 or more complete sources!
They are all marked with "
Some of our members have to use obfuscated eMule protocol
(because of provider's 'traffic shaping', or just for privacy).
This means that you will not be able to connect to them unless you use latest eMule client.
So, if you are still using eMule version older than 0.47c or another client,
it is perfect time to
upgrade to latest eMule
You will find more sources (including at least one additional full collection source).
Also here is one more message by Thomas
In other news, eMule Xtreme 5.3.1 is out
It is based on eMule 0.47c, so it has obfuscated protocol support.
Today I found that the last rare sets all have at least 3 full sources,
so the entire collection should be reliably available from now.
It took us less than a year to reach this point,
since the project was started in November 2005.
Congratulations and thanks to all members! Please keep downloading and sharing!
(Let's see how long it will take before all files have 10 full sources).
Thomas is sharing his experience about the best way to configure eMule.
Please take a look
and try to do the same (or post a better way).
If you have not yet, please update your eMule to version 0.47c.
It fixes some bugs and introduces important new feature: obfuscated connection.

I searched the ed2k network for 4+2 sets one by one, and added the links to this page.
I can confirm that all 4+2 pawnless bases are online,
which means that from now all pawnless 6-men Nalimov bases are available and indexed on this page! (well, except 5+1 of course).
Of course many have only one or two sources, so it will take some time before they are widely spread.
Please feed those links to your eMule! (you can use the "All" links below each section).
Good news from Renze Steenhuisen and Vincent Diepeveen:
they synchronized their collections and shared them complete with eMule!
Now all 4+2 pawnless bases are available, and many more new sets.
I'll look them up and add emulecollections to this page as soon as I will have time,
for now please utilize eMule search to see if some set is already online.
Thanks to Renze and Vincent!
Wilfried Eberl is putting online these new 3+3 sets:
KRRKNN, KQBKNN, KQBKRR, KQRKRR, KQQKNN, KQQKBB, KQQKRN, KQQKRB.
I used eMule search to find that KQNKRN is already shared too, which completes the "3+3 no pawns" collection!
From now all 3+3 tablebases without pawns are available to download!
eMule 0.47a is released!
It has bugfixes and some cool features, particularly support for large files and fixed proxy support.
Please upgrade at your first convenience! (unless you are using a mod)
Keith Ian Price is starting to share KQNPKQ.
