Files required:
1. polyglot.exe
2. pgn-extract.exe - for player and result filtering
Those are not included in the package.

You can place it anywhere but have to define it the gui. If you place it in the same dir with this gui then no need to define it.

If you don't specify a player name then all names will be considered. It is also better to read the manual to the polyglot book making.

There is one option that I did not implement the so called -min-score, default to 0.0, perhaps in the next version.

When win or draw or player name is defined then pgn-extract will be run to filter the games before feeding it to polyglot. A temp file will be created called filtered_temp_games.pgn. Can be used to inspect if the filtering is correct, in the next version I will delete this automatically.

Be sure to clean your input pgn file with pgn-extract as polyglot would stop the process as soon as it encounters errors in pgn.
Cleaning of input pgn will be done automatically in the next version.

I have tried 1.8 million games and polyglot could not process because of memory issues, I have only 40GB free in hardisk though I have 12GB RAM. This book creator has no warning messages implemented yet when such cases happens, what you will see is the message book was created but actually the book was not created. I will try to detect this polyglot error in the next version.
