Re: Banksia GUI released

The problem was that it was a collision. Syzygy path for engines should be soley for egtb consulting in search, the same idea for syzygy adjudication. Before they caused a collision. CuteChess have them seperately. Being able to set a universal syzygy path for engines during search and adjudication ...

Re: Commercial Release of Ethereal 13.00 (NNUE) for AVX2 Systems
