This would be great as the opening repertoire definitely needs to have variation.
Sure, that will be a new feature for the next release!

Re: Can EGTB storage requirements be reduced using this scheme?

The baseline number of entropy bits per position is 0.85. So 200 nodes could result in space savings of up to 58%, 1600 in 68%, 12800 in 87%. If we add 10% overhead for this B+ tree-like indexing, it's still a lot of savings. While this scheme would be slower, the files would be smaller so they cou...

Re: Can EGTB storage requirements be reduced using this scheme?

- Based on some quick tests, we should get 97% agreement What data did you get from that quick test? If an engine can provide enough data and correct 97% with that shallow search we don’t need EGTB at all ;) Some big problems may be: - you can’t get 97% of all positions with that shallow search.

I installed
version 0.37

Select Concurrency: 4 games 256 hash each engine
After a few games the tournament is interrupted.

My computer has 6 cores. Amd Ryzen
How many cores did you set for each engine?
Can you give me the list of engines, I will try to reproduce the issue. Thanks
