Newb question - How do I use CTG opening books in Shredder?

Post  ichivictus on Fri Dec 13, 2013 12:06 am

I really like Deep Shredder 12 but I can't seem to figure out how to use CTG format books with it. It uses BKT as far as I know.

I'm pretty new to engines and GUI's so the answer is probably simple. I googled for like 2 hours yesterday trying to figure it out but gave up and tried fritz which accepted any CTG just fine. But I'd rather use Shredder still.

And if I'm not able to use a CTG book, are there any good BKT format books or should I stick with shredder12.bkt?

Thank you Smile

BKT and CGT are proprietary data file formats - not interchangeable. Choose either Shredder (BKT) or Chessbase (CGT). The latter has a superior chess product line.

Thank you. I'll just stick with Fritz and Aquarium then.
